12/13 TRIPLE (LB CALL)

Triple Option LB Call

LB Call: We use this when we want to block the “regular” Pitch Key defender in order to give the defense something more to think about; instead of reading the OLB as #2, the QB will read the Safety to his side as #2 (Pitch Key). Views (7)

For Your Quarterback’s Health, Teach Leverage Pitching

Leverage Pitching

Many coaches believe that the one downfall of running a triple option offense is the possible health hazards that come with the territory – namely, your QB taking the BIG HIT as he pitches the ball to his pitch back.  A simple solution to this dilemma is to teach the QB how to “leverage pitch.” …

Triple Option vs. A Tough 3-Tech

Many coaches have asked what they can do if that very tough 3-tech DT is eating up their playside OG while running the triple option play?  I have two suggestions: 1) Simply have your QB audible to the midline option play.  This way, instead of having to “block” that 3-tech, your QB can read him. …

When to Use Triple Pass

Triple Pass

Triple Pass is a play-action passing play that should be used when the safety (ies) start to cheat up in order to provide run support to the perceived point of attack.  When those safeties start to blow up your base triple option play, it is time to make them pay the price by using this …

Switch Block Vs. Two-High Safeties

Switch Block

In order to prevent a disaster when running your triple option play vs. two-high safeties with the corners rolled up, I suggest that the playside WR and playside A-back make a “switch” call in order to exchange responsibilities on the play.  This will prevent the possibility of the rolled corner immediately attacking the pitch-back on …

Dive Triple Option

Dive Triple Option

This is a triple option play with a passing option. It is very important that the QB makes his decision on who is getting the football very quickly so that you are not penalized for having an illegal man downfield.  This play begins looking like a regular triple option run play.  However, the backside A-Back, …

Identifying The Action Key Defender In The Triple Option

Action Key Diagram

The action key defender is defined as the first defensive lineman INSIDE of the dive key defender.  In the diagram shown, the dive key is the first defensive lineman on or outside the play side OT (#1).  The pitch key defender is the “next defensive player” outside the dive key (#2).  So, the action key …

Lead Speed Option

Open Lead Speed

On this play, I like to read the first defender passed the DE.  This gives the QB ample time to attack the perimeter with force.  The B-Back is looking for the first wrong color to block (make sure he does not block the pitch key).Views (661)
