Five Areas to Stop Overcoaching When Running the Flexbone Triple Option Offense

Sometimes too much information becomes bad information.  Many Flexbone Triple Option Offensive techniques require an approach that can be taught to players in one sentence.  This way, players can develop visual pictures in their minds of how to accurately technique their assignment.

All Triple Option techniques are VERY important… it’s the manner in how others teach these that lead to too much information by coaches. Coaches worry and tend to overcoach certain aspects of the Triple Option.  

These are the five areas are the most commonly overcoached on the Triple Option:

1- Quarterback/B-Back exchange. All the Quarterback has to do is the following: Take the snap, seat the ball, hop into the playside A-gap, point the ball, give the ball to the B, unless #1 tackles the B… if so, re-seat the ball, step with playside foot, replace #1, and score.  This article in xandolabs.com gave a detailed description of this.  Honestly, it doesn’t take that much work.  Ask the clients with whom Dr. Cella has worked.

2- Quarterback Reading the Stack. The Quarterback follows the same steps above except he reads from the top-down (#2 to #1).  Everything else still applies.

3– A-Back blocking #3 on Triple. The A-Back will dropstep, crossover, and run into the alley.  He collisions whoever shows up in the alley.  If #3 aligns in the middle of the field pre-snap, the Playside A runs a straight line to #3.  There is no need to teach “switch” blocks or utilize fancy signals anymore in order to do any of this.

4– The Veer Release. The Offensive Lineman takes a six-inch zone step (lateral and vertical), grabs grass with his opposite hand, and pounds his arches through the 2nd level.  If nobody shows at the second level, he runs to the third level.  Anytime anybody invades his personal space, the Offensive Lineman punches his inside hand through the outside breastplate of that player, and the Offensive Lineman pounds his arches through the echo of the whistle.

5– Scoop Blocking. All the Offensive Lineman has to do is open at 90 degrees, run past the threat in his gap, and vertically turn once he is past the threat in his gap, and go back to the huddle.  If there is no threat in his gap, he turns vertical and uses his outside hand to punch anyone attempting to cross his face.

 

Only Two Things Can Happen on a Scoop Block

In this podcast episode, Dr. Lou Cella discusses the two things that can happen on a scoop block.  Situations within the scoop block are discussed.  All of the footwork and angles are discussed as well.  Effective scoop blocking starts with specific alignment, stance, and first step–all of which are discussed in this podcast.

The podcast can be found right here.

 

Dr. Cella Describes Modern-Day Scoop Blocking at the High School Level

In this podcast, Dr. Cella discusses the technique behind the most important backside block in the Triple Option Offense–the Scoop block.  Technique and sense of purpose are discussed in detail.  Utilize the commentary on this podcast to work the Scoop block with your Triple Option Offensive Linemen this summer.

High School First-Level Scoop Blocking in 2016

1. On Triple Option, the Backside Tackle is Always Scoop blocking; however, with the federation changes in 2016, he is no longer allowed to go to the ground and  go to the ground on the first-level defender.

2. The Backside Tackle slightly alters his technique to the following:

  • Open at 90 degrees (same as always).
  • Run past the first-level threat and dip his inside hand down once he gets past the threat (same as always).
  • Step upfield with playside foot and move through 2nd to 3rd level, cutting off any threat who looks to cross from the backside to the playside (new in 2016).
Triple v. 4-3 Cover 2. PR- Deep Defender PA- 3 PT- Veer PG- Base to Ace C- Veer to Ace BG/BT- Scoop BA- Pitch BR- Cutoff Q- Veer 1, Pitch 2 B- Veer Path

The Left Tackle is on the Backside of the play.  He will open flat and run past the 3-technique. Once he gets past the 3-technique, he will dip his left hand on the ground, step north with his right foot, and get upfield to scoop the 3-technique.  Effective February 2016, he is not permitted to  go to the ground on the first level defender.

This technique is taught at all Triple Option Football Academy Camps with Dr. Cella

Triple Option Anticipation-Based Coaching

There are three main features to being able to out anticipate all of your opponents with the Triple Option. They are the following:

  • Being able to know the situation and what you should do. Basically, you run Triple, see who makes the tackle, and if the Triple gets blown up, find out who did it, and constrain them on the next play.

 

  • Being ready to move. Practice involves going faster than game tempo to prepare for the speed of game night.

If you seek a smart Triple Option Football program, these two things must occur, and on a daily basis.

“I just don’t think I have the Quarterback to Run the Triple Option”

I was talking to a high school football coach from the East Coast who said the following to me:

“Lou, I have never really run the Triple Option, but I WOULD take a look at it.  I just don’t think I have the Quarterback to do it.  Thanks” –Coach

___________________________

Ok, let’s examine the best Triple Option Quarterback in the world right now–Navy Quarterback, Keenan Reynolds.

How many Division-1 scholarship offers did he have out of high school?

Does anybody know??????

I will tell you.

NONE

He was going to walk on at either Vanderbilt or Middle Tennessee State when Navy said to him, “You can play Division-1 football  for four years and then possibly get shipped out to the Middle East and fight for your country.”

He chose Navy.

Nobody else wanted him.

He supposedly couldn’t play ANYWHERE.

However, HE COULD PLAY AT NAVY–a school with ZERO athletic scholarship football players.

Why?

THEY RUN THE TRIPLE OPTION.

12 bowl games in 13 years–with ZERO athletic scholarship football players.

GOD Bless and have a GREAT day!  –Lou

How to Make Your Players Competitive with the Triple Option

In order to compete with the big boys on your schedule, here are five tips to get more competitive NOW in the Triple Option Offense.

1. Broaden your scope.  Consider ways to take on different challenges within your role. Work on more situational football to keep players alert and guessing.

2. Seize opportunities to throw the football.  Don’t keep your head buried in the sand. When the safety is flying up or the corner isn’t backpedaling at the snap, it’s time to go deep.

3. Eliminate passivity. Just because you run the Triple Option offense doesn’t mean that you supplicate yourself.  You are still coaching offensive linemen to dominate the line of scrimmage with scoops, veer releases, and ace blocks.

4. Prepare for surprises. Always be ready for the STEM and the BLITZ.

5. Recalibrate as you go. Decrease the chances that you’ll be caught off guard.  When somebody does something to you and you do not have an answer, there are over 400 articles on tripleoptionfootball.com that assist you in the process.

The Big Idea in 171 Words

Here’s the problem.  If you can’t block defensive linemen, you’ll never move the ball, you’ll never score points, and you’ll never win a game.

You need to understand why this disconnect occurs to overcome it and win.

“I know many coaches would rather install an offense the traditional way by researching it, visiting colleges that run the offense, and then picking coaches for information.

I have used that same strategy, and I know that it takes about three years to really gain an understanding of the offense and get players to execute it at a high level.

Consequently, in the research method, you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency.

We wanted to give our players an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

We also concluded that by the time we visited colleges, bought DVDs, playbooks, and sent players to college camps to gain skills, we would have invested many times the cost…”

Triple Pass versus 6-3 (Goal-line) Defense.

Triple Pass versus 6-3 (Goal-line) Defense.

Zone Option versus Goal-line (6-3) Defense.

Zone Option versus Goal-line (6-3) Defense.

Heavy Right, Triple Right v. 6-3. Here, the Playside Receiver blocks the Near Deep Defender.  Since no one is covering any of the deep zones, the Receiver runs to the end zone.  If the corner does not run with him, throw Triple Pass to him on the next play. The Center and Playside Guard Ace the shade.  This means the Tackles have to Veer inside on triple.  Since there is a 4i, the Playside Tackle attempts to veer inside the 4i... likely this will be a collision and a PULL by the Quarterback.   The Heavy Tackle veers inside. The B-back runs his dive path and likely will collision the Mike linebacker if the Mike linebacker takes the dive.  If the Mike linebacker runs over the top, he will be blocked by the Heavy Tackle.

The Triple Option Football Turnaround Project: Theory of Action and Objectives

When turning around a Triple Option Offense, all coaches must develop a theory of action, specific to the Triple Option offense. The Triple Option Offensive Plan must focus on establishing priorities to achieve rapid and meaningful improvement. Once drafted, coaches present their plan and receive direct feedback from assistant coaches. By the end of training camp you must have a defined plan that you can put into action right away.

Triple Option Offensive Objectives

  • Develop a theory of action— wherever you may be in the turnaround effort—focusing on establishing priorities to achieve rapid and meaningful improvement
  • Lead effective transformation of offensive culture
  • Understand how to use data effectively to set strategy and drive integrated decision-making on the practice field
  • Drive high-quality instruction and instructional leadership
  • Determine how best to track and assess progress and strategies for communicating your vision to the players, coaches, and stakeholders

The Triple Option Football Turnaround Project: Overview

In your first year as a Triple Option leader, you must analyze elements critical to your offense’s turnaround plan. There is great importance of demonstrating high instructional quality and expectations, translating data into action, developing effective teams, leading a change effort, and creating meaningful engagement with players and coaches.

 

Triple Option Offense turnaround efforts require highly effective leaders able to create the conditions for rapid and sustained change. To successfully impact player outcomes, leaders in turnaround contexts must drive a fundamental shift in offensive culture and instructional practice that results in early gains and ongoing high performance. The demands are great, but the need to improve the opportunities for our offensive players is even greater.

Coaches must demonstrate an understanding of how to do the following:

  • Transform offensive football culture
  • Identify and achieve early success
  • Measure your results
  • Understand how to best align offensive-level efforts with conference and statewide programs
  • Implement your new theory of action

The Triple Option Process: Seven Crucial Awareness Points for Avoiding Failure

When installation the Triple Option you must get to potential issues before they ever start.

The following seven (7) crucial awareness points must create mindfulness in the coaching staff:

1- Allowing complacency.

Players have to continually focusing on improving through the process.

2- Failure to guide through the process.

Coaches have to COACH and these coaches must continually provide players with information on techniquing their assignment.

3- Underestimating the power of vision.

Coaches have to utilize Navy as a model.

4- Permitting obstacles to block the vision.

When people, places, things, or ideas block the offense from looking like Navy, thwart these obstacles with overwhelming force.

5- Failing to create short-term victories within the process.

Players must know when they’ve achieved success in each stage of the process.

6- Declaring victory too soon.

Coaches must accept that it takes 66 practices to start a habit (2013 study) and that the coach’s work is never done.

7- Neglecting to firmly anchor changes in the football culture.

This is about constantly fixing mistakes in alignment, assignment, and technique.

The Playside Tackle has the key block as he scoops the 5-technique (must stay on his feet).   The B-Back has an easy block as he walls off the Mike linebacker. The Quarterback is going to pitch off a widened #2. Unless the defense brings someone over from the backside to the over side, they are going to have difficulty defensing this concept.

Consequently, in the research method, you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency.

We wanted to give our players an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

“The biggest thing for us is that it gave our kids the opportunity to work together in our offensive system before the season started–the techniques and fundamentals they learned was so big, so was the team bonding, and so was having an outside source (Lou Cella) teaching them–this was invaluable.”

“We were looking to take that next step, and felt that a camp might be just what the doctor ordered. We were not disappointed. We were already committed to the triple option, but the camp brought a much higher level of focus and understanding to our team, both players and coaches. Now when we tell our kids to ‘trust the system’ they know what we’re talking about.”

– Marshall Hahn, Head Football Coach
