Triple Option Football Coaching: The B-Back’s Veer Path with “Ace” Call

If the action key is aligned on the playside when Triple Option is called, the Center and Guard “Ace” the action key, and the B-Back is allowed to stay on his veer path through the progression…

Here is how he should run the veer path.



1- The B-back get the ball placed on his belly button by the Quarterback.

2. The B-Back runs through the guard with five points of pressure on the football (fingertips from both hands (2), forearms (3), biceps (4), and sternum (5) are all pressed against the football).

3- He hugs the Ace block… then…

4- He hugs the Playside Tackle’s veer block… then…

5- He squares his shoulders and runs vertical through the end zone.

The B-Back touches the football more than any other player in the Triple Option Offense.  Empower him with an exact and efficient veer path.



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.”
