Properly Utilizing the Trips Formation in the Triple Option Offense

In this episode, Dr. Cella discusses how to properly utilize the Trips formation in the Triple Option Offense.  Dr. Cella advocates that Trips should predominantly be utilized to throw the ball and to run Midline White.  Several coaches over-utilize formations in the Triple Option Offense and an overall use of formations leads to a vast number of mistakes by the players AND coaches in the Triple Option Offense.  Also, Dr. Cella provides interesting data and empirical research on first down rushing.  The Triple Option Football Academy Podcast with Dr. Lou Cella is published at the start of every day on tripleoptionfootball.com.
