Triple Option Football Playbook: Constraining the Playside Linebacker with Triple Pass A-Drag

There IS another constraint for the Playside Linebacker when he makes the tackle on Triple/Midline.

Zone Option is the best constraint currently utilized by Navy, Georgia Tech, and Georgia Southern; however, the Triple Pass A-Drag accomplishes the same task.

Triple Pass A-Drag constrains the Playside Linebacker by throwing to the area the Playside Linebacker voids in coverage.

The Big Idea in 171 Words

Here’s the problem.  If you can’t block defensive linemen, you’ll never move the ball, you’ll never score points, and you’ll never win a game.

You need to understand why this disconnect occurs to overcome it and win.


“I know many coaches would rather install an offense the traditional way by researching it, visiting colleges that run the offense, and then picking coaches for information.

I have used that same strategy, and I know that it takes about three years to really gain an understanding of the offense and get players to execute it at a high level.

Consequently, in the research method, you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency.

We wanted to give our players an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

We also concluded that by the time we visited colleges, bought DVDs, playbooks, and sent players to college camps to gain skills, we would have invested many times the cost of the camp.”
