Offensive Line Blocking on the Rocket and B-Back Toss

In this six-minute podcast episode, Dr. Cella discusses modern-day blocking of the Rocket and B-Back Toss.  The Rocket and B-Back Toss is run when the Triple Option is executed for a gain of <4 yards on a give to the B-Back.  When the defense forces the Triple Option inside, the offense must get the ball to the outside.  The Rocket and B-Back Toss gets the ball wide and to the outside.  This puts pressure on the defense to play the Triple Option differently, or get gashed by the Rocket and B-Back Toss.  Rocket and B-Back Toss blocking is provided for all five Offensive Line positions by Dr. Cella.

The podcast can be heard right here.

Installing the Perimeter Blocking Scheme for the Inside Veer

The Playside A-Back and the Playside Receiver have a responsibility to cancel the Run Support and the Deep Defender so the Keep Phase and the Pitch Phase can be executed.

#1- Defensive Lineman touching the Tackle. #2- Defender on or past #1. #3- Defender on or past #2. The Near Deep Defender is not part of the count.

#1- Defensive Lineman touching the Tackle.
#2- Defender on or past #1.
#3- Defender on or past #2.  This is the A-Back’s responsibility
The Near Deep Defender is not part of the count, and the Deep Defender is the Receiver’s responsibility.

The Playside A-Back arcs to #3 and blocks whoever shows in the alley.  This can be either the safety or the corner in a 4-across look.  Here, it's the safety.

The Playside A-Back rhythmic drops (1st step), crosses (2nd step), runs (3rd step), and blocks whoever shows in the alley.  This can be either the safety or the corner in a 4-across look.  Here, it's the Corner.

BLOCKING 3 ON TRIPLE- OVERHANG

The Playside A-Back drops-crosses-runs past #3, turns upwards, punches his inside hand to the outside stomach of #3 and the A pounds his arches through the echo of the whistle.

Load situations on Triple with Playside Tackle and A-Back.  If the Mike runs over the top, the Playside A blocks the Mike and the Tackle blocks #3.  This all happens via agile learning.

This is how the Run Support (#3) and the Deep Defender are cancelled on Inside Veer (Triple Option).  To get the blocking on the Triple Option right the first time, contact the Triple Option Football Academy at 570.332.0265.
