Paul Johnson Triple Option Strategy Lesson #4

Paul Johnson Triple Option Strategy Lesson #4

From the Nike Clinic


Coach Johnson indicates that if #1 and #2 are sitting in a stacked position on Triple Option and are sedentary post-snap, it’s time to run Double Option.

This is because the Triple Option becomes a give read where #2 can fold inside and hold the give to a four-yard gain.

According to Coach Johnson, “After a while, you’re going to get tired of four-yard gains.”

Double Option forces #2 to play the Quarterback or the pitch instead of folding inside on the dive.

One of the many double options that can be run is Double Option with a “Tiger” call.
