The Triple Option B-Back

The B-Back is the heart and soul of any triple option offense.  Sometimes called a “fullback”, the B-Back must above all be a tough runner, not afraid of contact.  Whether or not he ends up getting the ball during the first phase of the option, he most likely will be hit on every play so …

Four Plays = 75% of Practice Time

The Pistol-Flex Offense prides itself on being a relatively simple offense to implement.  This is due to the fact that we only have a limited number of plays (13 to be exact).  This allows your players to become masters of a few plays rather than a jack of many plays! We use 75% of our …

12/13 Triple (Linebacker 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 (258)

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. …

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, …
