The Importance of Specializing in Your Triple Option Techniques

The Importance of Specializing in Your Triple Option Techniques

The Triple Option is a non-traditional offense filled with unique techniques.

The offense is designed to overcome the ability to block defensive linemen by reading them with the Quarterback.

Assistant coaches must achieve mastery of educating players in the following areas:


Quarterback B-Back A-Back Receiver Center Guard Tackle
Triple Steps Veer Path Arc Near Deep Veer Base Veer
Mid Steps Mid Path Load Cutoff Ace Ace Base
Follow Steps Pass Path Twirl Vert Slide Veer Scoop
Pass Steps Zone Path Fan Skinny Base Slide Fan
Counter Steps Sprint Path Pitch Drag Down Deucecom Slide
Zone Steps   Vert Fade Scoop Down Deucecom
Toss Steps   Wheel Flash Gate Superscoop Superscoop
Vert Steps   Pitch-Kick     Scoop Gate
Sprint Steps   Toss Path     Gate  

There’s simply not enough time to teach a lot of constraint plays.

Triple Option, Midline Option, Follow, and Triple Pass combine to make up 50% of Navy and Georgia Tech’s Offense over the last seven years.

50 Percent!

Get great at this and throwing the football–and let the rest take care of itself!

More isn’t better… better is better.

Specialize in what you do.



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.”

Before the 2010 season, Falls City HS (TX) had never won a regional championship in school history.

In 2010, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Falls City HS (TX) won the Regional and State Championship for the first time in school history in Texas while scoring 680 points in 15 games.


“The biggest thing for us is that it gave our kids the opportunity to work together in our offensive system before the season started–the techniques and fundamentals they learned was so big, so was the team bonding, and so was having an outside source (Lou Cella) teaching them–this was invaluable.”

– Mark Kirchhoff, Head Football Coach


After running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Bayfield HS (CO) had an undefeated regular season for the first time since 1996 and advanced to the state championship game in Colorado.


“We were looking to take that next step, and felt that a camp might be just what the doctor ordered. We were not disappointed. We were already committed to the triple option, but the camp brought a much higher level of focus and understanding to our team, both players and coaches. Now when we tell our kids to ‘trust the system’ they know what we’re talking about.”

– Marshall Hahn, Head Football Coach
