Georgia Tech Head Football Coach Paul Johnson on Running Triple versus a Three-Man Surface
From the Nike Clinic
▪ When facing a three-man surface (Triple Stack), take the A-Back and put him out in Trips.
▪ Somebody from the defense has to go with the Playside A-Back.
▪ Put the Playside A-Back out on the hash.
▪ #3 has to go with him. If #3 does go with him, now #3 is out of the box.
▪ Then, the other A-Back will come in motion and run Triple at him.
▪ You can make the 3-man surface move.
▪ If they don’t cover down, raise up and throw to the Trips A-Back
▪ This eliminates the defense’s three-man surface to run games.
This diagrams shows you how to run Trips Triple versus the Three-Man Surface just as Paul Johnson discussed:
▪ Trips Triple versus Three-Man Surface
▪ PR- Deep Defender
▪ MA- #3
▪ PA- Twirl, Pitch
▪ PT- Veer
▪ PG- Base to Ace
▪ C- Veer to Ace
▪ BG/BT- Scoop
▪ BR- Cutoff
▪ Q- Veer 1, Pitch 2
▪ B- Veer Path

For 55 years, the Triple Option Offense has proven that you can win big without blocking Defensive Linemen.
Army finished #19 in the country last year… with no athletic scholarship football players. They run the Flexbone Triple Option.
Navy has been to bowl games 14 out of 16 years… with no athletic scholarship football players. They’ve run the Flexbone Triple Option in all 16 years.
Kennesaw State finished #4 in the FBS (1-AA) last year… and they’ve only had football for four years. They’ve been Flexbone Triple Option since day 1.
Lenoir-Rhyne went from 3-7 (2017) to 12-2 (2018) in Division-2 after installing the Flexbone Triple Option… biggest Division-2 turnaround in the country last year.
When you run the Flexbone Triple Option Offense, you make Defensive Linemen INVISIBLE.

This opening drive consisted of 21 offensive plays by Army.
The drive lasted 12 minutes and 55 seconds.
You can watch the 21-play Army drive below, and the action starts at the 5:15 mark.
1. It doesn’t matter how many people don’t get it. What matters is how many people do.
As long as you’re accomplishing your objectives with the Triple Option, the haters will possess a cascading effect–and then they don’t matter.
2. 10% of people will find a way to take anything personally. Expect it.
NEVER respond to the criticism or respond to things that do not warrant a response.
3. Trying to get everyone to like you is a sign of mediocrity.
If you respond to EVERYONE about the Triple Option, you’ll get more behavior you don’t want and less behavior you do want.
4. If you are really effective at what you do, 95% of the things said about you will be negative.
The best coaches are almost always the people who get the most criticism.
5. If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.
Train yourself to be effective at dealing with, responding to, even enjoying criticism… In fact, take the quote a step further and encourage people to actively pursue being thought foolish and stupid.
6. Live well.
If a vessel contains acid and you pour some on an object, it’s still the vessel that sustains the most damage.
7. Carry onward.
If you believe you can change lives with the Triple Option, do what you believe is right, expect resistance, and expect attackers.
The camp was held on May 23-25, 2018 at Madison County High School (GA). Thanks to Chris Smith, Jimmy Whitfield (video creator/Defensive Coordinator) and the great Christian coaches who made this experience a memorable one.
