Paul Johnson’s Seven-Step Process on How to Install the Triple Option

Paul Johnson has discussed how to install the Triple Option.
In this column, the information provides gives a summary of the rules, installing the Triple Option versus a 4-3 Defense to the shade side, installing the Triple Option versus a 4-3 Defense to the 3-technique side, installing the Triple Option versus a 4-3 Defense versus two, 2is, installing the Triple Option versus a 50 Defense, installing the Triple Option versus a Triple Stack Defense, and installing the Triple Option versus a 4-2 Defense (4-4).
This is the same order Paul Johnson taught the Triple Option to a group of coaches in Colorado.  You can be assured that this is the proper installation progression.

Part One: Install the Rules
Playside Receiver- Stalk Deep Defender (Block for Pitch)
Playside A- Dropstep-Crossover-Block Run Support
Playside Tackle- Easiest Release for Mike 
Playside Guard- Base to Ace
Center- Playside A-gap
Backside Guard- Backside A-gap (Scoop)
Backside Tackle- Backside B-gap  (Scoop)
Backside A- Pitch
Backside Receiver- Cutoff
B- Mesh Track.  1. 1st step at Playside Guard; 2. run through ball; 3. Read block of 1st Defensive Lineman inside the read.
Quarterback- 1. Open and get two steps in the ground; 2. make read; 3. step around; 4. get downhill.

Part Two.  When instructing coaches on the Triple Option Offense, after Paul installs the rules, the next step is to teach the Triple Option versus a 4-3 Defense to the Shade side:
Triple v. 4-3 to shade PR- Deep Defender PA- Run Support (#3) PT- Veer PG- Base to Ace C- Veer to Ace BG/BT- Scoop BA- Pitch BR- Cutoff Q- Veer 1, Pitch 2 B- Veer Path *If the Center can base-reach the shade, the Playside Guard has the Mike and the Playside Tackle veers outside and has Mike to Free Safety Triple v. 4-3 to shade

Georgia Tech Head Football Coach Paul Johnson’s Teaching Progression on the Triple Option: Part Three 
When instructing coaches on the Triple Option Offense, after Paul installs the Triple versus a 4-3 to the shade side, the next step is to install the Triple Option versus a 4-3 to the 3-technique side:
Triple versus 4-3 to 3 technique side PR- Deep Defender PA- Run Support (#3) PT/PG- Deuce C- Veer (Playside A-gap) BG/BT- Scoop BA- Pitch BR- Cutoff Q- Veer 1, Pitch 2 B- Veer Path
If the Guard can base the 3, Coach Johnson wants the Tackle to go right to the Mike.  When this occurs, the B-Back stays inside the 3-technique.
TRIPLE VERSUS 4-3 TO 3 TECHNIQUE SIDE Guard base blocks Tackles veers into Mike
TRIPLE VERSUS 4-3 TO 3 TECHNIQUE SIDE.  Guard base blocks.  Tackles veers into Mike

This process is a great way to educate your players on how they can best technique their assignment with the Triple Option Offense.  Utilize this process to install and execute the Triple Option Offense in 2016 with your program.  

Installing the Perimeter Blocking Scheme for the Inside Veer

The Playside A-Back and the Playside Receiver have a responsibility to cancel the Run Support and the Deep Defender so the Keep Phase and the Pitch Phase can be executed.

#1- Defensive Lineman touching the Tackle. #2- Defender on or past #1. #3- Defender on or past #2. The Near Deep Defender is not part of the count.

#1- Defensive Lineman touching the Tackle.
#2- Defender on or past #1.
#3- Defender on or past #2.  This is the A-Back’s responsibility
The Near Deep Defender is not part of the count, and the Deep Defender is the Receiver’s responsibility.

The Playside A-Back arcs to #3 and blocks whoever shows in the alley.  This can be either the safety or the corner in a 4-across look.  Here, it's the safety.

BLOCKING 3 ON TRIPLE- OVERHANG

The Playside A-Back drops-crosses-runs past #3, turns upwards, punches his inside hand to the outside stomach of #3 and the A pounds his arches through the echo of the whistle.

Load situations on Triple with Playside Tackle and A-Back.  If the Mike runs over the top, the Playside A blocks the Mike and the Tackle blocks #3.  This all happens via agile learning.

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.

Key notes: This concept can be added “on the fly” as the only changes from the Triple Option to Follow are the following: The Playside Tackle bases and the Quarterback follows the B-back.

Key notes: This is the fourth phase of the Triple Option (Dive, Keep, Pitch, and Pass).  The Quarterback and perimeter are the greatest factors in determining the speed of movement through the process.

Midline OptionRequires 1-2 hours of deliberate practice.

Key notes: Midline Option is a “default” concept as Triple Option is called and a 3-technique appears to the call side.  The quarterback defaults the concept in at exactly one hole.  Once the Triple Option is installed, this is usually a simplistic progression even at the smaller-school level.

The New Era of Check-with-Me Option Football: Step-by-Step Instructions

Do you want to call the best option at the line of scrimmage?  Here’s how to do this in 2016…


1- Align in Double Flex.

Double Flex. This formation is utilized to run Rocket better versus the blitz.

Double Flex. Offensive Line aligns with 3 1/2 foot splits and the Receiver align two yards from the Tackle on the line of scrimmage with the outside foot up.

2. Signal in the side to which you want to run the football (left/right).

3. Quarterback utters the cadence–“Down, Ready, Sethut.”

4. The Quarterback then does the following:

a. If the A and B-gaps are filled, run Triple Blast as you have them outnumbered on the perimeter.

Triple Blast v. Bear PR- Down PA- Arc PT- Deuce to Veer PG- Deuce to Ace to Base C- Scoop to Reverse Ace BG- Scoop to Reverse Ace BT- Scoop BA- Pitch BR- Cutoff Q- Flash Ball, run off PR's block, pitch off #2 B- Blast Path, Block #3

BA- Pitch
BR- Cutoff
Q- Flash Ball, run off PR’s block, pitch off #2
B- Blast Path, Block #3

b. If the B-gap is filled and the A-gap is open, run Midline Triple.  This exploits the A-gap void.

Double Flex Midline Triple PR- #2 in triple count PA- Twirl, Arc PT- Pull, Block 1st threat PG- Veer C-BG- Reverse Ace BT- Scoop BA- Pitch BR- Cutoff Q- Mid 1, Pitch 2 B- Mid Path

PA- Twirl, Arc
PT- Pull, Block 1st threat
PG- Veer
C-BG- Reverse Ace
BT- Scoop
BA- Pitch
BR- Cutoff
Q- Mid 1, Pitch 2
B- Mid Path

c. If the B-gap is open and the A-gap is filled, run Triple to exploit the B-gap void.

Double Flex Triple versus Odd Stack PR- Deep Defender PA- 3 PT- Veer PG- Base to Ace C- Veer to Ace BG- Scoop BT- Scoop BA- Pitch BR- Cutoff Q- Veer 1, Pitch 2 B- Veer Path

What is the definition of an A-gap defender?

Answer: This is a down defender who aligns in a 0, 1, or 2i alignment.

What is the definition of a B-gap defender?

Answer: This is a down defender who aligns in a 2, 3, or 4i alignment.

Why align in the Double Flex formation?

Answer: So that you can blast (load) #1 and get the ball on the perimeter.  High school rules prohibit cut blocks (except for Massachusetts and Texas) so outflanking people is key.


By running modern-day option on me, you are ALWAYS exploiting the void of a defensive alignment.

A and B-gaps filled = Triple Blast (double option)

B-gap filled, A-gap open = Midline Triple

B-gap open, A-gap filled = Triple Option
