Triple Option Football Playbook: Sprint Pass versus the Odd Stack (3-3-5, 3-5-3, and 5-3) All-Out Blitz

The Sprint Pass is a great 3rd and 10 concept…

However, defenses likely will send the house on 3rd and 10.

Sprint Rules

PR- Vertical (if over the top of the corner at 16 yards, keep running) to Flash (16 yard vertical, come back to the outside at 14 yards)

PA, OL- Gate (Step Playside and Hinge Backside)

BA- Flat motion, 10 yard out

BR- Post

Q- Sprint Steps, Read Flat Player (Progression High to Low to Run)

B- Sprint Path (1st four steps on Veer Path, flatten out, and block 1st threat off Playside A-Back)

Here is the visual on how to maximize the effectiveness of the Sprint Pass versus the Odd Stack.


In this situation, the Playside Receiver would run the Flash UNLESS he could beat the Corner over the top once he gets past the 16-yard mark.

The Playside A-Back and Offensive Line Step with their Right Foot to the Sprint side.  If the defender enters their gap on the first step, they punch the defender and reroute him inside.  If not, they hinge and block the threat running through their gap on the hinge.

The Backside A-Back flat motions and runs the 10-yard out.

The Backside Receiver runs vertical for seven yards and posts.

The Quarterback sprints to seven-yards depth, and rolls into the flat.  If the flat defender does not cover the Flash, the Quarterback rolls into and throws into the Flash.  If the Flat defender covers the Flash, the Quarterback rolls into and throws into the Out.  If both the Flash and the Flat are covered, the Quarterback rolls into the flat and runs.

The B-Back takes his first four steps on his veer path, flattens out and blocks the 1st threat off the Playside A-back.  If the overhang player is that wide, the B-back will block through his outside breastplate and reroute the overhang blitzer inside.



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.”
