Ok, so here’s the situation.
The defense is aligning with one-high safety.
You’ve been taught that you need to bring an extra player over to force the defense to declare themselves.
You call Triple Option to the Over side.
They don’t bring anyone over… so you have the numbers advantage.
They align a 3-technique to the call side.
This defaults the Triple Option to ZOOM (Midline Triple Option)
Playside Receivers- Near Deep Defender
Playside A-back- Twirl to #3
Playside Tackle and Guard- Veer In
Center and Backside Guard- Ace
Backside Tackle- Scoop
Backside A-back- Pitch
Backside Receiver- Cutoff
Quarterback- Mid #1, Pitch #2
B-back- Mid Path, Bend off action key
This is the most effective way to run triple option in the Over formation and versus a 3-technique.
