Why Run The Ball?

Many new fast-paced, no-huddle offensive philosophies are not about taking as much time off the clock as possible.  Rather, these offensive sets are all about trying to score as many points as possible in the shortest amount of time.  Personally, I am at the opposite end of the time-management spectrum in that I have always …

Not every coach wants to run a true triple option offense for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons is the perception that truly mastering the triple play is time consuming and very difficult. While this is certainly not true, one alternative that I tell coaches who want to run some option but …

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 (406)

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. …
