Triple Option Football Playbook: Demonstrating How the Odd Stack Defense (3-3-5, 3-5-3, 5-3) Can Stunt Themselves Right into a Loss

Often times the Odd Stack does well at the high school level because of all the stunts and games that they provide.

Versus the Triple Option Offense, the Odd Stack can literally stunt themselves right out of the game.

Here is one example how.

When the Odd Stack Defense easy stunts on Counter Option, the Stacked linebacker blitzes through B-gap.

The Backside Guard’s job is to SCOOP #1.

If the Stacked Linebacker blitzes through the B-gap, he’s going to be in the Playside Guard’s path–and thus–he gets TRAPPED.

Look at what happens from here.


The Quarterback is able to turn it up and neither #1 or #2 can come close to  him.

Because of the alignment of the defense, nobody can make a play until the third level.

The Mike is totally out of position as he is totally out leveraged by the Playside Guard’s base block.

The only chance left is the 0-technique versus the Center’s Base Block… and once he sees the B-back going away from the play, where do you think he’s going?

So fear NOT coaches… when you see the Odd Stack… expect dominance.  You have all the answers RIGHT HERE.

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.”
