When Triple Option is called and a 3-technique plus a safety appear to the call side, the Triple defaults to Lead (Midline Double).
The following is the Quarterback’s progression on Lead (Midline Double):
1- Take the snap.
2- Seat the ball.
3- Hop both feet into the backside A-gap.
4- Point the ball.
5- Give the ball to the B UNLESS #1 tackles the B.
6- If so, re-seat the ball.
7- Step with playside foot, replace #1, and score.
Midline Lead is utilized when Triple is called and a 3-technique and a playside safety align to the Triple Option side. Since the Playside Tackle cannot veer into the safety, the backside A-back must be inserted as the extra blocker.
