The Big Idea

If you’re a football coach, then you probably have Offensive Linemen who struggle to block Defensive Linemen.  You’ve tried zone blocking, down blocking, trapping, and by the time you’ve done all this, it’s 3rd and 10.

It’s frustrating to have all these hopes and dreams stuck on a group of kids who aren’t physically able to do what you need them to do.  As a coach, you want to run the ball.  You know that running the ball is the best way to move the ball and score points at the high school level.

While you may WANT a dominant running game, you can’t get it today.  Yet the demand for a superior running game is enormous and there is no disagreement among football experts.  If you could possess a crushing running attack, you would have a large and fast-growing football program and win a lot of games.

Navy has been in FBS bowl games 12 out of the last 13 seasons with zero (0) FBS scholarship football players and they destroy people running the football with a 330 yard/game average over the last three seasons.

Navy’s Offense is the Triple Option Offense and this offense is about running the football while canceling defensive linemen from ever making the tackle.

The Triple Option Football Academy shows you how to execute the Triple Option Offense the same way Navy players learn the offense.  Your players and coaches learn the offense the right way the first time.

Triple Option Offense Success Story: Odessa-Harrington (WA)

In 2015, after running a camp with Dr. Lou Cella as Camp Director, Odessa-Harrington (WA) scored 508 points in 11 games, averaged 46 points/game, made it to the second round of the Washington State Playoffs, and did all this with a roster of 20 players.

Dr. Cella is an absolutely fantastic instructor of triple-option football who taught our players as if he were coaching his own team.  From the very beginning of camp he arrived with an enthusiasm, excitement and a passion for football that was infectious for our entire team and coaching staff. 

Dr. Cella incorporated a fast-paced, up tempo style that allowed all of our players to have multiple repetitions, thus enabling each of them to easily understand the proper techniques and concepts that were being taught. 

Not only is Dr. Cella a master at teaching the proper fundamentals of the triple-option, he also impressed upon our team a mental toughness that is essential in having success on and off the football field.  Our camp was a great success and Dr. Cella is truly dedicated to turning programs into champions.

Triple Option Offense Success Story: Timmonsville (SC)

In 2010, Timmonsville HS (SC) was running the Spread Offense and finished the 2010 season with a 1-9 record.

In 2011, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Timmonsville went to the South Carolina Class A State Semifinals and with a roster of 21 players.

“The camp/system was a key factor in our team’s success in 2011 at Timmonsville High School. As a coaching staff we knew that the offense we ran in 2010 did not fit our current personnel and we consequently determined that the Flexbone offense was a good fit. With installing any new offense, two critical factors will determine its effectiveness: 1) For the coaching staff it’s the knowledge and understanding of the offense to implement it. 2) For players it’s the ability to buy into the offense and execute it without hesitation.

The Flexbone system reduced the learning curve for those two critical factors for us by about 2 years and allowed us to experience immediate success. The  Camp/System gave us everything we needed at the end of camp for me to do long range planning for the entire season with daily practice schedules. My assistant coaches had the knowledge and resources to coach position specific drills. My offensive coordinator had the information to put together a game plan and call plays in a strategic fashion.

During the season if questions arose we would go back to the DVDs, visit the website or Lou Cella was just a phone call or email away for one on one advice. My players became a team during camp and finished camp with confidence and enthusiasm for the Flexbone offense that gave them the zeal to look forward to Summer practice and a chance to put the new offense into action through competition.

The team building: enthusiasm and confidence and skills that were built in my players by the camp carried over into the season and was evident in our success. We were able to defeat our rival twice in the same year, which had not been accomplished since 1999. We had an opportunity to play for a region championship. We were able to defeat a team that has knocked us out of the State playoffs and Timmonsville High progressed to the South Carolina state semi-finals in our classification losing out by just 2 points. We increased our rushing yardage by 20% and rushing touchdowns by 50%. We plan to build on the success of this year for next season.

The value of the camp cannot be measured in dollars and cents, although if you approach it from that angle it was a very cost effective strategy for us. I know many coaches would rather install an offense the traditional way by researching it, visiting colleges that run the offense and then picking coaches for information. The offense is then modified for their use using trial and error to develop the offense that best suits their high school’s team needs.

I have used that same strategy and I know that it takes about 3 years to really gain an understanding of the offense and get players to execute it at a high level. Consequently in the research method you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency. We knew that we had a good group of kids for the next couple of years and wanted to give them an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

We also concluded that by the time we visited colleges, bought DVDs, playbooks, and sent players to college camps to gain skills, we would have invested many times the cost of the camp. The cost effectiveness of the system coupled with its immediate impact and continued collaboration from the association made the camp an easy decision for us that has already paid big dividends and will continue to pay off in future seasons.”

“I give a tremendous amount of credit for our 2011 UNDEFEATED LEAGUE SEASON to Lou!”

Before the 2011 season, Hollister San Benito HS (CA) had not won their conference championship, the TCAL, in seven (7) years.

In 2011, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Hollister San Benito HS (CA) won the TCAL Conference Championship, went undefeated in conference play, and made it to the CIF Division 1 Quarterfinals.

“After coaching the Hollister Haybalers of San Benito High School for the past 17 years with good success, I found myself and our coaching staff in a bit of an offensive rut.  I began to research the Triple Option offense.  I had heard about the camp.

Lou came out to Hollister, California and put on a great camp for our team.  Our players had the opportunity to work together to learn the flexbone offense in the summer months preceding our football season, and having Lou, who is truly an unparalleled expert in this field, work directly with our players was simply invaluable.  In addition, Lou provided our entire coaching staff with an intensive, exceptional on-the-field clinic.  I give a tremendous amount of credit for our 2011 UNDEFEATED LEAGUE SEASON to Lou!”

“Our Team Hit Their Stride After Hosting Your Camp in August”

In 2010, Johnson HS (NJ) had their worst season since 2005.  Because of this, Johnson HS (NJ) hired Head Coach, Mike Mancino; however, Coach Mancino was hired only two months before the start of training camp. 

In 2011, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director,  Johnson HS (NJ) made the State Quarterfinals.

“On behalf of the 2011 Arthur L. Johnson Football Team, I wish to thank you for your help in making our 2011 season such a success. With the bulk of our team being underclassmen and having a new staff, implementing a new offense was a bit risky. Our entire staff agreed that our team hit their stride after hosting your camp in August.

At the camp the staff and players learned the intricacies of the offense and came away with the confidence needed to compete with the toughest schedule our team has seen in years. Statistically we finished 6-4, qualified for the state playoffs, rushed for over 2600 yards, had a plus 70 edge in total offensive plays and set the school record for rushing yards by a quarterback at 1,103.”

“We were looking to take that next step, and felt that a camp might be just what the doctor ordered. We were not disappointed. We were already committed to the triple option, but the camp brought a much higher level of focus and understanding to our team, both players and coaches. Now when we tell our kids to ‘trust the system’ they know what we’re talking about.”

“It is never to late to make the right decision.  After evaluating our offensive production the previous year, we knew we had to fix our run game.  We decided to make a commitment to running the veer.   We were able to set up a camp.

In 2012, we averaged 38 points a game and 400 yards of offense, finishing the year 9-3 after losing in the state quarterfinals.  We also notched wins against a team our school had never beaten before and defeated the 2011 defending state champions.

In 2013, after working with Triple Option Football Academy Owner, Lou Cella, Hereford HS (MD) won the Baltimore County Division I Football Conference Championship in Head Coach Steve Turnbaugh’s final season as Head Football Coach.  

After Hereford’s seventh-straight win in 2013, Steve retired after a 19-year career coaching his son, Brock, and coaching at his alma mater.

“We did the academy this past off-season. In my opinion it was worth every penny we invested.We had been running the triple since 2005. I attended Navy clinics, other clinics, bought videos etc…..

However, I picked up more during those sessions with Lou than I ever could imagine. If I had questions, Lou was there with an answer.

We lost many players from our 2012 team. We were basically starting from scratch with our 2013 team. The academy had us prepared for any situation. Though we started 0-3 (many injuries, including using a # 3 QB) we finished winning the last 7 games.

Though this was my last season, I am still involved in the triple option and would run that offense in a second,  if I do decide to resume coaching again.

Thank you Lou for all your time. It was well worth it.”

In 2009 and 2010, Poland Regional HS (ME) won a grand total of two games.  The school hired Head Football Coach, Ted Tibbetts, less than two months before the start of training camp.

In 2011, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Poland Regional HS (ME), earned the best winning percentage in school history, won twice as many games as they had the previous two seasons and broke school records for rushing, passing, and points scored.

“Our Flexbone camp had a tremendous impact on our record setting season.  A developing program less than 9 years old, we have never been able to score enough points to beat the better teams in our league.

Coming into this season we knew that we needed to make some changes if we wanted to emerge as a one of the dominant teams in the league.  The camp changed our program in many ways.  First, players really knew their assignments and how to execute them effectively.  Second, as a coaching staff we significantly increased our understanding of the offense and how to teach it.  Most significantly, however, our kids now love the system.  In the past, because we haven’t been a strong team, getting the players and the community to see the power of option football was a challenge.  However, this year, even experiencing a setback from a penalty or an unexpected defense, our kids just shrugged it off.  ’No big deal,’ they would say.  ’We can break one at any time.’  And often times, we did.

We set program records this year in yards rushing, passing, and in points scored.  Our quarterback alone had over 1000 yards in total offense.  While we finished 4-4, narrowly missing the play-offs, our record doesn’t fully reflect our growth.  The two prior seasons we were a 2-14 combined.  Moreover, this year we steadily improved beating playoff bound teams at the end of our season.  Our kids can’t stop talking about getting back on the field next year.

We are thrilled about our experience!  Lou did a great job preparing players and coaching staff for the season.  I’m most impressed with his personal touch and commitment to our team.  He welcomes any questions at any time and often asks about players that he worked with by name.  We feel that our growth as a program has just begun and that the camp was a vital catalyst in the process.”

In 2011,  Temple City High School (CA) went 1-9.

“This past July we hosted a camp with Lou Cella as the director. It was, in my opinion, the best endeavor I have ever participated in with regards to improving a football team towards a specific goal. I have not seen such a unilateral result, from coaches to players, with any other method.

The greatness of the camp is in the breadth of activity. Every position is taught and drilled, as well as position coaches. The camp is a systematic installation of the offense. Lou was phenomenal, his energy and passion for what he was teaching was infectious with the players and coaches.

I have never witnessed a group of athletes improve more in 4 hours on the first day of camp, and the improvement continued throughout the duration. Any coach looking to run the flexbone offense would be crazy not to invest in a camp for their players and coaches.”

–Mike McFarland, Head Football Coach


Before the 2010 season, Riverwood HS (GA) had not won five (5) games in a season since 2005.

In 2011, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Riverwood High School (GA) won five (5) games in a season for the first time since 2005.

“When we arrived at Riverwood in 2008, we realized quickly how undersized we were up front. I have always been an “option guy” and wanted to run what I considered option football. After all, there was no way we could compete with our size and lack of athleticism running the I or Gun.

After three years of mediocrity, we realized that we had become a “multiple” offensive team running more wing-t than option. After a trip to the Naval Academy in the Spring of 2011 to visit with my brother, offensive line coach, Ashley Ingram, we decided to look at having Lou come in and help us along the way.

We decided to join ranks with Seminole County and have a two-team camp. My Dad is the head coach at Seminole County and we had scrimmaged each other the past two years. Our players were familiar with each other and the coaching staffs had a great relationship. Lou Cella came in and transformed our football teams.

Seminole County went on to have the greatest season in the history of the school. Riverwood went 5-5 year and lost one game in OT and another by four points. Our turnover margin went from -11 in 2010 to +9 in 2011. We scored an average of 46 points in the last four weeks of the season and had only one turnover in that stretch, while beating the #4 ranked team in the state of Georgia . We scored on every possession.

Ball security and fundamentals have always been the cornerstone of our program.  Thank you Lou. You made the difference.”

Shadow Ridge (NV) went from one (1) win in 2015 to five (5) wins in 2016, and led Nevada’s largest classification, Class 4A, in rushing with 305 yards/game after their camp with Dr. Cella.

travisHaving committed to the triple option the year prior, we knew we had some kinks that we needed help ironing out. We hosted a Triple Option Football Academy Camp in the summer of 2016.

Following Dr. Cella’s camp, we went on and increased our win total by four games. We led all 4A teams in the state of Nevada averaging over 305 yards rushing a game, and we broke numerous school records in the process. The most beneficial aspect of the Triple Option Football Academy was the practice structure Dr. Cella puts in place. It is up-paced and makes the most use of your practice time. We owe a great deal of credit to Dr. Cella for our success.

“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.”
