Paul Johnson on Running Triple Option out of the Trips Formation

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

The ONE Situation to Run Outside Veer

Read The ONE Situation to Run Outside Veer right here.

Utilizing Follow as a Constraint When #1 Cancels the B-Back on Triple

Georgia Tech and Army have been utilizing Follow as a pull read constraint in 2017.

When the defense forces a pull read on Triple Option, Tech and Army are basing #1 with the Tackle and the Quarterback follows the B-Back up the hole.

This way, when the Mike Linebacker runs over the top to take the Quarterback or pitch, the Quarterback is running up inside and the Mike runs himself out of the play.

Here is Follow versus the 4-2 defense.

Follow is blocked the same as Triple except the Playside Tackle bases and the Quarterback follows the B-Back.

This is more effective than Zone Dive, Zone Belly, or Outside Veer Give as the B-Back creates an extra blocker at the point of attack.

Utilize Follow when the defense forces a pull read on Triple.

 

Navy, Georgia Tech, and the Citadel All Do This When the Defense Aligns with a 4i

When the defense aligns with a 4i, the 4i is designed to cancel the B-Back on Triple Option.

There is the likelihood that the 9-technique is going to hit the Quarterback as fast as possible–this is what is called a Blood Stunt.

Navy, Georgia Tech, and the Citadel run Outside Veer out of the base Spread Formation when they get a 4i so that they can double #1 and hand the ball off while #2 (9-technique) runs right past the ball carrier.

Here is Outside Veer run versus a 50 defense with a 4i technique:

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.
