Paul Johnson Triple Option Strategy Lesson #1

Paul Johnson Triple Option Strategy Lesson #1

From the Nike Clinic


Paul Johnson says not to worry about how many defenders tackle the B-Back on Triple Option.

This is due to the fact that if #1 cancels the B-Back on the Triple Option, the B-Back won’t have the football.

Bottom Line: Focus on how #1 is playing the Triple Option.  Is he canceling the B-Back or not?

If he is, run Zone Dive (with Pin) to cutoff #1 from getting to the B-Back (illustrated here).

If not, load #1 and run any two-way, double option to get the ball kicked on the perimeter.
