According to Georgia Tech Head Football Coach, Paul Johnson 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 Zone Option, which is Navy’s #1 answer when this happens. Allegedly, Georgia Tech is adding the Zone Option to their Triple Option Offense in 2016.
If this occurs to the 3-technique side of a 4-3, Midline Lead becomes a great alternative.
