Paul Johnson Says Not to Worry About How Many Defenders Tackle the B-Back on Triple Option

Triple Option Football Academy

Paul Johnson says not to worry about how many defenders tackle the B-Back on Triple Option.

This is due to the fact that if #1 cancels the B-Back on the Triple Option, the B-Back won’t have the football.

Bottom Line: Focus on how #1 is playing the Triple Option.  Is he canceling the B-Back or not?

If he is, fake the Triple and throw the ball down the field because when #1 cancels the B, the secondary has to come up to play the Quarterback/Pitch.  This way you make them pay because they sacrifice pass coverage for run support.

If not, toss the ball or execute a double option (Zone Option is what Navy utilizes) to get the ball kicked on the perimeter.
