Navy’s #2 Concept of 2015: Zone Option (Illustrated vs. Triple Stack Defense)

Navy runs Zone Option when the defense forces a give read to the B-Back on Triple Option and the result of the play is a gain of less than four yards.  Then, the Naval Academy comes back with Zone Option, which forces the defense to have to play the Quarterback and the pitch.  This concept was Navy’s second-most utilized concept of 2015.  

Zone Option versus Triple Stack Defense.  The Playside A-Back blocks #2 when #3 is on the Line of Scrimmage.  Also, the B-Back has Mike to Free Safety, and often versus a Triple Stack, he will end up on the Free Safety as the Free Safety has a better angle than the Mike to make the tackle on Zone Option.
