    Rainier (WA)

    In 2017, after becoming a Triple Option Football Academy client and working with Dr. Cella, Rainier (WA) had their best season in 26 years, reached the state playoffs for the first time since 1991, and made it to the Washington Class 2B State Quarterfinals.


    “Rainier Football has played around with the triple for a few years.  This past season we went to the Triple Option Academy and had our school’s best season in 26 years (7-3, losing twice to the defending state champs) and reaching the State Playoffs for the first time since 1991.  The part that impressed me the most was Dr. Cella’s availability throughout the season.  Whenever we called with detail questions about the system, he had time for us.”
