Myth #1

The triple is a ground &
pound oense

REALITY #1

It can be, but that depends
on you

Build the line for a big play oense


Center BEST OVERALL LINEMAN
Guards Looking for Drive and Push,
not PULL
Tackles Long, lean, and fast
(TE type kids = great tackles)

Build the backeld for a big play oense


B Best runner, speed and strength, Game
Breaker

How fast can he get through the mesh?
Feet?
Vision?

Evolu.on of the Op.on QB


Great Athlete > Great Decision Maker
QB should be the 2nd Primary Runner

(IV think B Back First)
(Mid think QB First)
NO HUDDLE HAS CHANGED THIS POSITION

Build the backeld for a big play oense


A Back
1st MUST BE A BLOCKER FIRST
2nd MUST BE ABLE TO CATCH A PITCH AND TOSS

Really, thats it.
BLOCKING ABILITY > SPEED
They are the 3rd Op.on for IV.

Build the perimeter for a big play oense


SE The must be great blockers
(If they can catch, that is a bonus)

Must be able to communicate with the A back.

K.I.S.S.
KEEP IT SIMPLE, Stupid

If play side backer tackles


dive for less then three,
then MID TRIPLE or TOSS

If defense keeps giving


EASY (BIRD) stunts,
then TOSS.

Dive, then CHECK your splits.

If defense gives you an odd front with a one high
safety, then TACKLE OVER or SE OVER.

him with MIDLINE
