Practicing 3-2 Exchanges are Part of a Triple Option Quarterback’s Lifestyle

When the Run Support (#3) and the Pitch Key (#2) exchange jobs, the Quarterback must be immediately able to recognize this and put the ball in the correct player’s hands.

Here is how to drill the Quarterback to defeat the 3-2 exchange:

Drilling Triple versus the 3-2 Exchange.  The Quarterback Veers #1 and pitches #2. If #3 and #2 change assignments, then the Quarterback pitches off the new #2 and the Playside A blocks the new #3. This is why the Playside A is conditioned to block whoever SHOWS IN THE ALLEY. This way the exchanges can never make the Playside A wrong.
