Your 3rd and 10 Pass–Sprint Pass: Triple Option Football Playbook

When Triple Option Football Academy Owner, Lou Cella interviewed Josh Nesbitt in 2011, he revealed that Coach Johnson’s favorite pass concept was the Sprint Pass.

Josh said that this was the concept they would go to time and time again.


Sprint Pass Rules

PR- Flash (Vertical to 16 yards, come back to the outside at 14 yards… if over-the-top of the corner at 16 yards, keep running)

PA, OL- Gate (Step playside and hinge away)

BA- Motion, 10 Yard Out

BR- Post

Q- Sprint at 7 yards depth, read flat player, throw to PR to BA to Run

B- 1st three steps on Veer Path, flatten out, block 1st threat off PA


Often times, this would be run out of trips as well.

The Sprint Pass works well on 3rd and 10 because the depth of the routes get the offense to the sticks.

This could likely be your primary pass concept when running the Triple Option Offense.



The Big Idea in 171 Words

Here’s the problem.  If you can’t block defensive linemen, you’ll never move the ball, you’ll never score points, and you’ll never win a game.

You need to understand why this disconnect occurs to overcome it and win.


“I know many coaches would rather install an offense the traditional way by researching it, visiting colleges that run the offense, and then picking coaches for information.

I have used that same strategy, and I know that it takes about three years to really gain an understanding of the offense and get players to execute it at a high level.

Consequently, in the research method, you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency.

We wanted to give our players an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

We also concluded that by the time we visited colleges, bought DVDs, playbooks, and sent players to college camps to gain skills, we would have invested many times the cost of the camp.”
