How to Mentally Condition Your Athletes with the Triple Option Offense

Triple Option Football Academy

In order to mentally condition your athletes with the Triple Option Offense, there is a six-part process.

1- Teamwork

This is where all 11 players simultaneously technique their assignment.

2- Anticipation

This is where players envision the worst-case scenario from the defense before the ball has been snapped.

3- Motivation

Unless a lot of players feel good about what they’re doing technique-wise, then THERE IS NO LEGITIMATE MOTIVATION.

4- Leadership

Those players who take information from coaches and communicate this information through physical action are the best leaders.

5- Competitiveness

These are the players who climb the mountain and these are the players whose physical technique gets good fast.

6- Character

The urgency of the player’s technique on the backside of the play tells you everything you need to know about a player’s character.

Here’s the problem.  If you can’t block defensive linemen, you’ll never move the ball, you’ll never score points, and you’ll never win a game.

You need to understand why this disconnect occurs to overcome it and win.

“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.

I have used that same strategy, and I know that it takes about three 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.

Triple Option Anticipation-Based Coaching

There are three main features to being able to out anticipate all of your opponents with the Triple Option. They are the following:

  • Being able to know the situation and what you should do. Basically, you run Triple, see who makes the tackle, and if the Triple gets blown up, find out who did it, and constrain them on the next play.

 

  • Being ready to move. Practice involves going faster than game tempo to prepare for the speed of game night.

If you seek a smart Triple Option Football program, these two things must occur, and on a daily basis.

Ace versus 2i. Guard zone steps with playside foot, takes second step goes back to base with backside foot and punches his inside hand through the playside breastplate of the 0-technique. Center zone steps with his inside foot, second step goes back to base with his outside foot, and his third step will be a zone step with his inside foot as he punches his inside hand off the third step, takes his fourth step going back to base, and squeezes his hips with the Guard and pounds his (Center’s) arches through the echo of the whistle.

Triple Option Offensive Lineman Off-Season Workout Plan

In Sports Science, the physical techniques utilized in the top 20 percent of the time in games get 80 percent of the results.

The Veer, Ace, Base, and Scoop blocks are the blocks utilized to make the Triple and Midline Option go.

In order to get a head start on 2014, work these drills all winter and spring long.

Let’s take a look at the areas on which to work.

“I just don’t think I have the Quarterback to Run the Triple Option”

I was talking to a high school football coach from the East Coast who said the following to me:

“Lou, I have never really run the Triple Option, but I WOULD take a look at it.  I just don’t think I have the Quarterback to do it.  Thanks” –Coach

___________________________

Ok, let’s examine the best Triple Option Quarterback in the world right now–Navy Quarterback, Keenan Reynolds.

How many Division-1 scholarship offers did he have out of high school?

Does anybody know??????

I will tell you.

NONE

He was going to walk on at either Vanderbilt or Middle Tennessee State when Navy said to him, “You can play Division-1 football  for four years and then possibly get shipped out to the Middle East and fight for your country.”

He chose Navy.

Nobody else wanted him.

He supposedly couldn’t play ANYWHERE.

However, HE COULD PLAY AT NAVY–a school with ZERO athletic scholarship football players.

Why?

THEY RUN THE TRIPLE OPTION.

12 bowl games in 13 years–with ZERO athletic scholarship football players.

GOD Bless and have a GREAT day!  –Lou

How to Make Your Players Competitive with the Triple Option

In order to compete with the big boys on your schedule, here are five tips to get more competitive NOW in the Triple Option Offense.

1. Broaden your scope.  Consider ways to take on different challenges within your role. Work on more situational football to keep players alert and guessing.

2. Seize opportunities to throw the football.  Don’t keep your head buried in the sand. When the safety is flying up or the corner isn’t backpedaling at the snap, it’s time to go deep.

3. Eliminate passivity. Just because you run the Triple Option offense doesn’t mean that you supplicate yourself.  You are still coaching offensive linemen to dominate the line of scrimmage with scoops, veer releases, and ace blocks.

4. Prepare for surprises. Always be ready for the STEM and the BLITZ.

5. Recalibrate as you go. Decrease the chances that you’ll be caught off guard.  When somebody does something to you and you do not have an answer, there are over 400 articles on tripleoptionfootball.com that assist you in the process.
