How the Flexbone Triple Option Offense is Truly a Lesson in Humility

Triple Option = Humility

Coaches go to the Triple Option Offense for one simple reason–Because their players cannot block defensive linemen.

Instead of blocking defensive linemen, these coaches install an offense where their Quarterback can read these defensive linemen instead of blocking them.

The coaches who make this decision obviously have decided to humble themselves.

Humble is defined as the following: having a feeling ofinferiority.  : not proud : not thinking of yourself as better than other people: given or said in a way that shows you do not think you are better than other people : showing that you do not think of yourself as better than other people.

Here are six powerful biblical verses exclaiming the importance of humility:

Philippians 2:3-11

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 

James 4:6

Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Luke 14:11

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Proverbs 22:4

The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.

1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.

Matthew 23:12

Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

The Triple Option is a lesson is humility.
