Triple Option Football Coaching: Load Situation on Triple Option with the Playside Tackle and A-Back

When #3 is in the middle of the field, the Playside A-back loads.

This means that he takes a straight path to #3.

But, what if the Playside Linebacker runs over the top of the Playside Tackle’s Veer Block?


What happens is that the footwork of the Playside Tackle and Playside A-Back stay the same, but they end up naturally changing responsibilities.

The Playside Tackle does NOT chase the Playside Linebacker… he continues to the third level and blocks the safety.

The Playside A-Back punches his inside hand through the outside breastplate of the Playside Linebacker and pounds his arches.

This is how the Triple Option is properly executed in a LOAD situation.



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.”
