Flexbone Triple Option Core Value #3

There are three core values that the Triple Option Head Football Coach must get across to his players and assistant coaches:

The third core value of the Flexbone Triple Option Offense is the following: Run the ball up underneath penetration.

This is what the new Head High School Football Coach tells his new players regarding the core values of the Flexbone Triple Option Offense….

“We successfully run the ball up underneath penetration without ever blocking any defensive lineman aligned outside of the playside guard.”

The goal of the Flexbone Triple Option offense is to get the defense to eliminate pass coverage for run support, and forget to turn the ball back to the inside…. when these two things happen, explosive plays occur.

However, when we successfully run the ball up underneath penetration without ever blocking any defensive lineman aligned outside of the playside guard–that is why most high school football coaches convert to the Flexbone Triple Option.  The Midline Option and the evolution of this concept has proven that there is never a need to block a Defensive Lineman from a 2-technique out.

They realize that they will never be able to consistent move 2, 3, 4i, 4, and 5 techniques beyond their will in order to get positive yardage in the running game.

So this is how it’s done.

We successfully run the ball up underneath penetration without ever blocking any defensive lineman aligned outside of the playside guard.

The quarterback reads the offense’s way out–all 2/3-techniques and defenders aligned on the playside tackle are the responsibility of the quarterbacks.

The offensive line splits (over 3 feet) take the backside defensive linemen away from the play and prevent them from making the tackle at the point of attack.

The offensive line splits (over 3 feet) give the quarterback time to read the offense’s way out on #1 and #2.

So when the 2, 3, 4i, 4, and 5 technique penetrate up the field, the quarterback gives the ball to the B-back and the B runs past the 3, 4i, 4, 5 technique.

Yes, it’s that easy…

There’s a reason why NAVY, with zero athletic scholarship players, have been to 13 out of 14 bowl games.

This is the final core value of the Flexbone Triple Option Offense.
