Loading the Odd Stack

When running Triple Option, the Playside A is responsible for #3 (run support).

If the Playside A cannot block the overhang, the Playside A will make a “LION” call to tell the Playside Tackle that the Playside Tackle is veering inside and has Playside Linebacker to Free Safety. Now, the Playside A blocks the Playside Linebacker to the Free Safety.  The Quarterback is responsible for canceling the overhang because #3 now becomes #2 in the count. 

Triple Load versus Triple Stack. Now, the overhang is #2 in the count and belongs to the Quarterback. The 40 technique and the Free Safety belong to the Playside A-Back and the Free Safety.

Running Triple Option versus the Triple Stack Defense Podcast

In this podcast, Dr. Cella discusses running Triple Option versus the Triple Stack Defense.

This podcast discusses reading the Stack and how to block the Run Support #3.

All 11 assignments are discussed in depth.

Dr. Cella wants you prepared for this very common situation so you can DOMINATE the Triple Stack (3-3-5/3-5-3/5-3) in 2017.

The podcast and corresponding write-up can be found right here.

Both Navy and Georgia Tech Ran This Last Weekend (9/3/16) Versus an Odd-Front Defense

Navy and Georgia Tech saw odd-front defenses at various times throughout their games with Fordham and Boston College.  When #1 cancelled the B-Back on Triple, both Navy and Georgia Tech decided to block #1 and run outside with the B-Back on Outside Veer Give.  As both defenses forced Navy and Tech to go outside, Navy and Tech brought the ball back inside.  Here’s exactly how Navy and Tech do this:

outside-veer-give-v-50-defense

The Playside Receiver cracks the Safety as he does not have to worry about the flank because there is no pitch phase.  With the Playside A and Tackle, they Trey (double team) #1, and if #1 slants inside (this is why you’re running this–remember he’s trying to cancel the dive), the Playside A breaks off the Trey and blocks the Mike running over the top.  If #1 goes in, you can bet the Mike is scraping over the top to the C or D gap.  The rest of the Offensive Line, the Backside A, and the Backside Receiver have the same responsibilities as Triple Option.

The Quarterback has the same footwork as Triple Option.  He takes the snap, jumps in the A-gap, points the ball, and gives to the B.  After he gives to the B, he runs one yard outside of the Tackle.  The B-Back has the same landmark as Triple except after he has the ball, he works vertical outside of the Trey block and to the end zone.  Navy and Georgia Tech do not run Outside Veer like the “old school” split back veer coaches.  They keep the mesh point the same as Triple Option.

A common question is why #2 (the 9-technique) isn’t blocked on Outside Veer Give.  This is because Navy and Tech run Outside Veer Give when #1 is cancelling the B on Triple.  If #1 is cancelling the B on Triple, #2 is either taking the Quarterback or the Pitch.  So, there is no need to block #2 on Outside Veer Give.

This is Navy and Tech’s go-to constraint versus an Odd Front Defense when #1 forces a pull read on Triple.  Navy and Tech double #1, hand the ball off to the B, and the B runs off the Trey.

Run Triple Load When You Cannot Block the Overhang vs. Triple Stack

When running Triple Option, the Playside A is responsible for #3 (run support).

Here is Triple Option versus Triple Stack with the Playside A blocking #3.

If the Playside A cannot block the overhang, run Triple Load.  In the Georgia Tech/Navy vernacular, this is 12/13 Load (12 is to the right).  Now, the Playside A blocks the Playside Linebacker to the Free Safety.  The Quarterback is responsible for canceling the overhang because #3 now becomes #2 in the count. The Playside A will make a “LION” call to tell the Playside Tackle that the Playside Tackle is veering inside and has Playside Linebacker to Free Safety.

Triple Load versus Triple Stack.  Now, the overhang is #2 in the count and belongs to the Quarterback.  The 40 technique and the Free Safety belong to the Playside A-Back and the Free Safety.

Navy’s #2 Concept of 2015: Zone Option (Illustrated vs. Triple Stack Defense)

Navy runs Zone Option when the defense forces a give read to the B-Back on Triple Option and the result of the play is a gain of less than four yards.  Then, the Naval Academy comes back with Zone Option, which forces the defense to have to play the Quarterback and the pitch.  This concept was Navy’s second-most utilized concept of 2015.  

Zone Option versus Triple Stack Defense.  The Playside A-Back blocks #2 when #3 is on the Line of Scrimmage.  Also, the B-Back has Mike to Free Safety, and often versus a Triple Stack, he will end up on the Free Safety as the Free Safety has a better angle than the Mike to make the tackle on Zone Option.

Utilizing the Freeze Concept to Run the Triple Option Offense

Freeze is utilized when a defense is stemming, stunting, and blitzing in an effort to reveal themselves before the snap.

Once the defense reveals themselves, the Quarterback can put the offense in the best possible play.

Four Focal Points to Lead Your Triple Option Offensive Reinvention in 2016

Four Focal Points to Lead Your Triple Option Offensive Reinvention in 2016

  1. Look at trends.

Navy went 11-2 in 2015 with 0 athletic scholarship football players and playing FBS Football.What can you learn from this phenomenon?  They ran Triple Option and Zone Option 1/3 of the time and could have run these two concepts more.

Related: The Two Concepts that Make Navy’s 2015 Triple Option Offense Go 

  1. Look at your competitors.

Competition is healthy. There are a lot of smart people out there.  What are they doing? If you take the time to study what your competitors are doing, it will help you to identify gaps in your offense on which no one is focusing. Gaps lead to opportunities. 

Once again, how often are you running Triple Option?  Navy ran Triple Option over 20% of the time.  Georgia Tech ran Triple Option over 30% of the time.  Are you a Triple Option program or are you a program that runs the Triple Option concept?

  1. Look at your overhead. 

A large number of coaches would have their job if they just spent more time studying the profits and losses. If you’re practicing a concept and not running that concept in the game, you’re wasting time.

  1. Drop the dogs.

The next step is the most important: Drop the dogs! When you find things that are not helping you grow, you have to shed them — fast.   Drop EVERYTHING in your offense that you do not utilize at least four times a game.  Arizona Cardinals’ Offensive Line Coach, Larry Zierlein says that you must run a concept at least four times/game for that concept to get that concept to work over an extended period of time.  This is based on his NFL Run Studies over the last two decades.  Drop the concepts that you don’t utilize in a game.  Spend time on what you do utilize.  Work on the Triple Option, Zone Option, and throwing off the Triple.  This will help you get good fast!

Then, you can work with your Quarterback on the Pitch Phase.  Start with the Easy and Blood Stunts on Triple Option.

Three stunts your Quarterback must face in practice. 1- Takes the snap. 2- Seats the ball. 3- Hops into the Playside A-gap. 4- Points the Ball. 5- Gives the ball to the B UNLESS #1 can tackle the B. 6. If #1 can tackle the B, the Quarterback reseeds the ball, replaces #1, and scores UNLESS #2 steps at him (diagram 2). 7. If #2 steps at him, he parallel pitches.

They Tripled Their Win Total and Went to the State Quarterfinals Running the Triple Option Offense

In 2011, Piedra Vista (NM) was running the spread offense and won three (3) games.In 2012, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Piedra Vista won nine (9) games and made it to the state quarterfinals.
images1“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.

One thing that I think people don’t talk about enough is that switching to this system made us better defensively also.  Our ability to control the ball on offense helped us win field position and time of possession battles, and more importantly, kept the opponent’s offense off the field!”
