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!

This initial drill starts the process.

Introducing the Quarterback to the Triple Option for the First Time

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!”
