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.
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.
If this occurs to the 3-technique side of a 4-3, Midline Lead becomes a great alternative.
