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.
