The Triple Option is not for everyone… certain coaches cannot handle the discipline.
Coaches have to follow a system and eliminate their abstract creativity.
However, by eliminating abstract creativity this usually means more winning–this is because players know where to go, they get to their spot fast, and they perfectly secure the ball.
The following are five reasons why certain coaches could not handle the Triple Option as their offense:
1- They want to be a jack of all trades.
They are more interested in being MULTIPLE than GOOD.
2- They try too hard to motivate players.
They want to be VINCE LOMBARDI but they have the personality of Ben Stein.
3- They put their motives first.
They are more interested in proving their personal football philosophy than winning.
4- They think high school football is their own personalized video game.
After 25 years of playing Madden, they view the real-life game as a video game where everybody is on the same page.
5- They cannot live the Triple Option lifestyle.
The structure and focus on education and technical prowess is too much for them. They want to be ARTISTS instead of winners…
Triple Option Football Coaches are the man’s man of football clubs. It’s not for everyone….
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…”

Here’s the solution. The Triple Option Football Academy.
Our mission is to lead the high-performance Triple Option Football Offense environment through sports science and mental conditioning coaching practices.
We focus on SIGNIFICANTLY improving the success of high school football programs in ONE season.
Before the 2010 season, Falls City HS (TX) had never won a regional championship in school history.
In 2010, after working with Triple Option Football Academy Owner, Lou Cella, 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 working with Triple Option Football Academy Owner, Lou Cella, 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
