In 2015, after running a camp with Dr. Lou Cella as Camp Director, Odessa-Harrington (WA) scored 508 points in 11 games, averaged 46 points/game, made it to the second round of the Washington State Playoffs, and did all this with a roster of 20 players.
Dr. Cella is an absolutely fantastic instructor of triple-option football who taught our players as if he were coaching his own team. From the very beginning of camp he arrived with an enthusiasm, excitement and a passion for football that was infectious for our entire team and coaching staff.
Dr. Cella incorporated a fast-paced, up tempo style that allowed all of our players to have multiple repetitions, thus enabling each of them to easily understand the proper techniques and concepts that were being taught.
Not only is Dr. Cella a master at teaching the proper fundamentals of the triple-option, he also impressed upon our team a mental toughness that is essential in having success on and off the football field. Our camp was a great success and Dr. Cella is truly dedicated to turning programs into champions.

Two State Semifinalists, A State Finalist, and a State Champion in Texas have Come out of Dr. Cella’s Triple Option Football System In Four Years
Dr. Cella assisted in the turnaround of numerous high school football programs through his triple option-based camp system. Just months after Dr. Cella served as camp director, Cashmere (WA) and Timmonsville (SC) went to the state semifinals, Bayfield (CO) went to the state championship game, and Falls City (TX) won their first regional and first state championship in school history.
Also, Corning (NY), Hereford (MD), Johnson (NJ), Lakewood (SC), Petaluma (CA), Piedra Vista (NM), Poland (ME), Riverwood (GA), San Benito (CA), Seminole County (GA), and Temple City (CA) posted drastic turnarounds just months after Dr. Cella served as their camp director.
Additionally, Dr. Cella has coached three current NFL players who have been drafted within the last two years. In 2015, Kevin White (Wide Receiver) was drafted #7 overall by the Chicago Bears and Mark Glowinski (Offensive Guard) was drafted in the fourth round by the Seattle Seahawks. In 2014, Lorenzo Taliaferro (Running Back) was drafted in the fourth round by the Baltimore Ravens. All three players were coached by Dr. Cella at the Junior College Level.
