Drilling the Triple Option Quarterback Against the Only Two Stunts That Matter

When running the Triple Option, there are only two stunts the defense can do that can truly effect the Quarterback on Triple Option:

1- Blood Stunt

Stopping the Triple with the Blood Stunt

2- Easy Stunt

The Easy Stunt with Blood Stunt-Like Speed. Quarterback takes the snap, seats the ball, hops into the Playside A-gap, points the ball, gives to the B, unless 2 runs through the B or 1 can tackle the B. If so, the Quarterback reseats the ball, steps with his playside foot, replaces #1 and scores unless #2 steps at him. If so, the Quarterback parallel pitches. The key to this drill is to make the Quarterback urgently and accurately pitch the ball. Whoever is responsible for the Quarterback is running a straight line to get to him in order to make him pitch.

The following is the procedure when #1 and #2 are on the line of scrimmage.

1- Take the snap.

2- Jump into the A-Gap.

3- Point the ball.

4- Give to B unless #1 cancels B.

5- If so, re-seat ball, step with playside foot, replace #1 and score UNLESS

6- #2 steps at Q… if so, parallel pitch.

This is how to beat the BLOOD STUNT.


The following is the procedure when #1 and #2 are stacked.

1- Take the snap.

2- Jump into the A-gap.

3- Point the ball.

4- Give to B unless #2 runs through B or #1 cancels B.

5- If so, re-seat ball, step with playside foot, replace #1 and score UNLESS

6- The other member of the stack steps at Q… if so, parallel pitch.

This is how to beat the EASY STUNT.

The Two Situations for Which to Prepare the Triple Option Quarterback–Blood and EZ Stunt

In this podcast, Dr. Cella provides step-by-step instruction on how the Quarterback is visually conditioned for the two biggest challenges he faces as a Triple Option Quarterback–the Blood Stunt and the EZ (Easy) Stunt.  Dr. Cella goes step-by-step through exactly what the Quarterback does to dominate these two stunts.  Once these two stunts are cancelled, there is literally nothing a defense can do to stop a Triple Option Quarterback.  Dr. Cella advocates that 100% of Triple Option practice time is dedicated to defeating these two stunts.

How Defenses Attempt to Stop the Triple–Blood Stunt

Triple Option Football Academy -- The Flexbone Offense from Army & Navy

The Blood Stunt is a popular way to stop the Triple Option, because it immediately forces the ball out of the Quarterback hands.

When the Quarterback recognizes the Blood Stunt, he gives ground, and he delivers the ball.

As Paul Johnson says, “Defenses can try to kill the Quarterback, but he’s not going to have the ball.”

Here’s an example of the Blood Stunt in action:

Stopping the Triple with the Blood Stunt Stopping the Triple with the Blood Stunt.  4-technique takes dive, 9-technique runs right for the Quarterback, and the Inside Linebacker scrapes over the top for the pitch at the snap.

Triple Option Quarterback Positional Training: Dominating the Blood Stunt

The Blood Stunt is when the read key (#1) and the pitch key (#2) come hard after the B-Back and the Quarterback on Triple Option.

Stopping the Triple with the Blood Stunt

Destroying the blood stunt is just like being caught on fire.  The Quarterback will stop, drop, and roll.  Here’s the progression:

1- Take the snap.

2- Jump in A-gap and extends elbows.

3- Give ball to B unless #1 tackles the B if so the Quarterback…

4- Re-seats the ball and stops.

5- Drops his playside foot and rolls the ball to the Backside A-gap.


Defensive Coordinators love the Blood Stunt because they believe this is the best way to kill the Quarterback.  Well, maybe… but the Quarterback ISN’T going to have the ball.

Stop, drop, and roll versus the Blood Stunt.
