Here’s a Great Story About a Triple Option Receiver Who Happens to be… A Girl

One of the most amazing stories I’ve had working as a Sports Psychologist. I worked with Victoria, her soon-to-be Hall of Fame Head Coach, Dan Mings, and her team during our three-day Triple Option Football Academy Camp at Johnston City High School (IL) in June. She is one of the team captains and starting Wide Receiver right now… and yes, she’s a girl!

Learn Navy and Georgia Tech’s High-Powered Offense This Summer

Learn Navy and Georgia Tech’s High-Powered Offense at Dr. Cella’s Triple Option Football Academy Camp.

Featured Image -- 11813

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.

Testimonials

h1a1_k_ins_6_13_mark_and_student“The biggest thing for us is that it gave our kids the opportunity to work together in our offensive system before the season started–the techniques and fundamentals they learned was so big, so was the team bonding, and so was having an outside source (Lou Cella) teaching them–this was invaluable.”

-Mark Kirchhoff, Falls City (TX) Head Coach, who scored 608 points in 15 games, won their first regional championship in school history, and won their first state championship in school history after their camp with Dr. Cella.


coachhahn“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.”

-Marshall Hahn, Bayfield (CO) Head Coach, who had an undefeated regular season for the first time since 1996 and advanced to the state championship game in Colorado after their camp with Dr. Cella.


Cashmere (WA) Head Football Coach, Phil Zukowski. Cashmere (WA)- went to the state semifinals just months after their Triple Option Camp with Dr. Cella.“Coach Cella is a master teacher. He moves fast, is articulate and extremely knowledgeable. We are so impressed with Lou that we will have him back again this summer to run our camp.”

-Phil Zukowski, Cashmere (WA) Head Coach, who broke the school record for rushing yards, broke the school record for total offensive yards, and went to the class A state semifinals after their camp with Dr. Cella.


Dr. Jimmy Woods“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.”

–Dr. Jimmy Woods, Timmonsville (SC) Head Coach, who went from 1-9 to the South Carolina Class A state semifinals in one year after their camp with Dr. Cella.


Piedra Vista (NM) Head Football Coach, Jared Howell. Piedra Vista (NM)- went from 3-7 to the state quarterfinals just months after their Triple Option Camp with Dr. Cella.“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.”

-Jared Howell, Piedra Vista (NM) Head Coach, who went from three (3) wins to nine (9) wins and to the New Mexico Class AAA State Quarterfinals in one year after their camp with Dr. Cella.


1442419687_titans_odessaharrington_boys_varsity_football_fall_15-16“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.”

–Jeff Nelson, Odessa-Harrington (WA) Head Coach, who 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 after their camp with Dr. Cella.


chris“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!”

–Chris Cameron, Hollister San Benito (CA) Head Coach, who won the TCAL Conference Championship, went undefeated in conference play, and made it to the CIF Division 1 Quarterfinals after their camp with Dr. Cella.


george“Lou came to us in 2013 and helped us simplify the offense and allow our players to be successful, ending with 9 – 2 record last season. The Triple Option Football Academy (2014) and camp Lou directed allowed us to improve the techniques at each position on the field, improving us at each position. We are very thankful for making the investment in Lou’s Triple Option Football Academy Camp.”

-George Bacalles, Corning (NY) Head Coach, who went to the New York Class AA state quarterfinals after their camp with Dr. Cella.


581919_4639395098513_45652053_n“Lou did an outstanding job at the camp I personally consider him one of my closest friends because he is always available to help. He does such a great job of installing fundamentals and mechanics. This was the first 11-win season in school history so remember ‘old dogs can.”

-Alan Ingram, Seminole County (GA) Head Coach, who broke the school record for wins in a season and advanced to the Georgia Class A state quarterfinals after their camp with Dr. Cella.


chris collins“The experience not only made our players better, it also helped our coaching staff to become better coaches in the system, and the money spent on the camp gave us far better returns than taking the staff to a clinic. We learned how to effectively implement all aspects of the Flexbone offense and how to incorporate meaningful reps in practice. Our offensive production increased from 18 points per game in 2010 to 31 points per game in 2011. I highly recommend the camp for anyone that is looking to become more proficient in running this offense.”

–Chris Collins, Lakewood (SC) Head Coach, started the season 5-0 for the first time in school history, broke the school record for wins in a season (8), and made the playoffs after their camp with Dr. Cella.

Breaking Records with the Triple Option

Triple Option Football Academy

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.

New Poland Football coach

“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…

After running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Falls City HS (TX) won their first regional and first state championship in school history in Texas while scoring 680 points in 15 games.

The Big Idea

There is a fundamental disconnect between the way coaches teach offensive football and the way the teaching is received by the players. 

As a result, at the crucial moment, when it is most important to be accurate, the majority of the time coaches are not.

The coaches most important coaching points have a surprising low chance of getting through.

You must understand why this disconnect occurs in order to overcome it, succeed, and win big. 

The Triple Option Football Academy shows you how.

1-9 to the State Semifinals with the Triple Option Offense

 

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.”
