Torrey’s Story

In 2016, Pamlico County (NC) won two (2) games and scored 108 points.

In 2017, after hosting a Triple Option Football Academy Camp with Dr. Cella, Pamlico County won nine (9) games and made it to the North Carolina Class 1A State Quarterfinals–all while scoring 508 points.

In 2018, Pamlico County goes 13-1 and is playing for the North Carolina Class A State Championship on Saturday, December 15th, at Duke University.  Currently, Pamlico has 31 players on the team, 12 of which are freshmen.  They have scored 611 points in 2018 and are averaging 44 points/game.

“The Triple Option Academy was huge for us as a program here at Pamlico County High School. Teams that thrive at the 1A level run system based offenses and that’s what the Triple Option Academy gave us. Dr. Cella came out and worked with my players and myself.  Dr. Cella helped put the system in place for us while we were in our spring football period. Offensively we went from scoring a total of 108 points in 2016 to scoring 508 points in 2017. The Triple Option Academy played a huge role in points scored for us. I am super excited to see what the future has in store for us in the second season of running this new offense.”

— Torrey Nowell, Head Football Coach, after his 2017 season.
