The 3 Triple Option Read/Pitch Scenarios

There are 3 read/pitch scenarios of the Triple Option.  Other variations of this are slower/ineffective variations of these three scenarios.

Blood

Blood is when #1 and #2 are on the line of scrimmage.  This is, by far, the most common scenario.  The Quarterback takes the snap, jumps in the A gap and points the ball.  He gives the ball to the B unless #1 (read) can tackle the B.  If that’s the case, the Quarterback re-seats the ball, steps with his playside foot, replaces #1 and scores unless #2 can tackle him.  When that’s the case, the Quarterback stops his feet, and flicks the ball across his chest to the A coming around.

The Backside A aligns one yard behind the Tackle with his feet together and his knuckles in his knees.  Cadence is down-ready-sethut and the Backside A leaves just before the in sethut.  He takes a big, wide 90-degree step (hammer step).  Then, he takes two 135-degree steps.   Finally, he turns upward at 60 degrees to catch the pitch, hit the seam, and score.

The B aligns behind the Quarterback and his depth is determined by whether or not he can get into the ball as soon as the Quartrerback points the ball.  He runs through the ball (doesn’t grab at it).  If the ball hits his bellybutton, it’s the B’s ball.   The B runs tight off the double team and gets vertical.

Eagle

This is a far less utilized read/pitch scenario.  Nothing changes except the Quarterback’s eyes move deeper to #1 (read) who is now off the line of scrimmage.  Nothing.else.changes.  If #1 can tackle the B, the Quarterback pulls the ball.  Nothing.else.changes.

EZ

This is another far less utilized read/pitch scenario.  The Quarterback looks at both players (#1 and #2) and gives the ball to the B unless either one of them can tackle the B.  If that’s the case, he replaces and scores unless the OTHER member of the stack can tackle him.  If that’s the case, he stops his feet and flicks the ball to the trailing A.
