Running Zone Option out of Heavy Just Like Army Does

Army West Point ran this very often during their best season in 22 seasons (2017).  The Heavy Tackle blocks down while the Offensive Line and the perimeter does exactly what they do on Triple Option. The B-Back becomes the extra blocker because of the numbers advantage while the Quarterback takes the snap, opens at 90 degrees, turns off the Receiver’s block and scores unless #2 can tackle him–if so, he sets his feet and parallel flicks the ball to the Backside A-Back.
