Stop Blocking Defensive Linemen — and Start Winning 

When Navy runs the Triple Option versus a 50 and an odd stack defense, they’re only blocking ONE defensive lineman.

ONE

Triple Option versus 50 Defense—You don’t have to block those in white, they will always be wrong, and they cannot make the tackle.

Navy has won 45 games in the last 5 seasons.
They do this with ZERO football scholarships.

Many of Navy’s players join the military for the opportunity to play Division-1 Football. It’s the only way they can get the chance.


The Triple Option is the system that allows Navy to win 45 games in the last five years.


Dr. Lou Cella educates high school and college football coaches how to run Navy’s Triple Option Offense through his Triple Option Football Academy and his Triple Option Football Academy Camps.


The results of the Academy and Camp are found right here — testimonials.

The Big Idea in 40 Words

Navy, Georgia Tech, and the Citadel are Division-1 football programs with academic-based student-athletes.

If they ran a traditional offense, they couldn’t block the defensive linemen they’d face.

Fortunately, they don’t, and because of this, they’ve gone a combined 27-7 in 2016.


The Problem

You can’t block their defensive linemen.


The Solution

hi-res-cc53f02384b6bc5c04f7f067f3c57775_crop_northThe Triple Option eliminates the need for blocking all defensive linemen outside the Playside Guard, and allows you to dominate the running game. 

Now, you read your way out by forcing defenses to learn how to play assignment football in a short three-day (3) preparation week.

The Triple Option Football Academy creates a high-performance offense through a sports-science based 12-step process.

Clients are empowered to execute this systematic offense through the Triple Option Football Academy and the Triple Option Football Academy Camps.

Triple Option Offensive Line Footwork–Mastering the First Step on Each Block

In this podcast episode, Dr. Cella discusses Offensive Line footwork on the Triple Option.  In recent months, Dr. Cella has had NFL Offensive Line Coaches tell him and those close to him that every footstep in the process is not as important as the placement of the hat and the hands on every block.  In teaching Triple Option Offensive Linemen, their first step is still important as this sets the direction to appropriately place the hat and the hands on each block. Dr. Cella discusses the first step of each block on the Triple Option in detail.
