Whether is double teams, scoop blocking, veer releases / finishes, or pass protection, coaches know that accuracy in these areas is crucial to make the Triple Option go.
Dr. Cella discusses the one Offensive Line Drill that must get done for Triple Option success.
This is the drill that best introduces the Quarterback to the Triple Option for the first time.
Then, you can work with your Quarterback on the Pitch Phase. Start with the Easy and Blood Stunts on Triple Option.
In practicing the Triple Option with all six skill positions, the coaches serve as the look team. One coach is #1, one coach is #2, two other coaches rotate as #3 and the Deep Defender.
#1 and #2 keep giving the Quarterback blood stunts and easy stunts.
The other two coaches keep giving different looks. These looks include #3 as an overhang, both coaches aligning equidistant while one runs into the alley and the other drops over the top of the Receiver (Sky/Cloud), #3 as a press corner (Cover 2), and #3 in the middle of the field (Load).
Each player has a responsibility and they must technique their assignment versus these multiple situations.

The 5-on-5 drill puts the Offensive Line versus a variety of defensive fronts.
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.

Offensive Line blocking fundamentals in the Triple Option have changed with the elimination of cut blocking inside the tackle box (at the high school level).
1- Scoop Blocking is the same except if there is a first-level threat the Offensive Lineman will cutoff the 1st level threat.
2- Veer releasing continues as planned. The goalpost drill is the best off-season veer drill ever invented.
