You call Triple Option to the Over side.

They don’t bring anyone over… so you have the numbers advantage.

This defaults the Triple Option to ZOOM (Midline Triple Option)


Zoom Rules

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

B-back- Mid Path, Bend off action key
