Petaluma’s Triple Option Turnaround

Petaluma (CA)

In 2011, Petaluma (CA) was 1-9 under Petaluma Alum and longtime coach, Rick Krist.

In 2012, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director,  Petaluma ends the season with four (4) wins.


“Petaluma High has been a triple option team for many years.  Over the past 10 years or so we have experimented with different formations and plays that compliment the offense.  This year we went back to the basics to try and clean up our approach on offense.  We had Lou come to the school.  We had all three levels participate in the camp and it really helped.

We were 1-9 and last place in 2011.  This year we improved to 4-6 and 3rd place.  After starting 0-4 this year we knocked off 4 wins in a row to start league.  Our freshmen team went undefeated for the first time in 30 years. The improvement was a direct result of staying with the offense.  With the younger teams doing well we are hoping for a promising future.”

–Rick Krist, Head Football Coach
