We started running triple option last season and added midline option this season. We got most of our information and techniques from Air Force and Navy. We ran it mostly from our Red/Blue formations(double slot/wing formation). I think it has been a great addidtion to our wing-t system.
Ebbster50: We ran read option w/single back incorporating motion from our wingback alignment. This also set up sweep/waggle for us. Our basic alignment was a shotgun Red/Blue (Wing-T formation): TE/WB to one side and SE/WB to the other with QB/FB in shotgun backfield set. We also had direct-snap to FB along with QB 'follow' between the tackles also. Our option game worked well off the motion as well as speed option w/FB as pitch man. We tried to maintain our wing-t option game from our shotgun formations. It was pretty basic, but worked well as we also spread out our SE/WB in a Loose set to move another defender out of the box. As teams came flying up to stop the run, it really opened up our pass game. Hope this helps. tm
We ran te G Option. We simply logged the DE with the pulling Guard, Based the OLB with the TE and pitched off of the saftey. It was a good play for us. We ran speed option away from our jet motion. This play was huge for us. Our favorite option was the midline. We ran it several different ways. The best way for us was to double the 1(2i) tech with the center and BSG, the PSG would Ivan and climb to the MLBand then Trey with the PST and the PSTE. This is how we blocked a 4-3 front. We ran it from a traditional wing t set, from a one back set and from a stack I set. we are looking into running it with a straight T set. I am think of blocking it the same way you would from a stack I or a power I. What do you guys think?

How did you incorporate the time necessary to run option in your practice schedule? We ran a very basic option scheme, because we devote so much time to the buck sweep and jet sweep series. Although option is a great play off of belly, we couldn't spend 20 minutes on the time ups like the triple guys. How do you do it, and run it successfully, while still getting your reps at the rest of the offense?
We had the Qbs, Cs, and Backs out 5 min early to practice and we worked on The midline steps and read during pre practice time and during team agility time. This gave us the 15 min to work on the option. we did this every day. As far as the other options they were all double options adn we blocked them so that we would eithier be ptiching off the saftey or the OLB depending on what defense we were facing that week.
Coach K We seem to run many of the same plays and have a similar offense. I tinkered with speed off from jet motion but did not feel comfortable with my Qb. Please contact me so we can talk more. email@example.com
Assume it is a double tight end wing t set. The wing is on the offensive right and a diveback is on the left. We can run double option either way. The QB opens up and fakes to the fullback who is aiming for the outside hip of the OG. There is no read to the fullback. The QB is pitching off the first man who is outside the TE. It may be a 9 tech. DE or an OLB or invert off the LOS. the blocking rules are:
TE: Inside. Either block a 7 tech or chip on a 5 tech with your OT. OT: On or inside. If covered you will combo with the TE. If uncovered, go to ISLB. OG: On or inside. If covered, block on to DL or LB. If uncovered, block down. OC: Reach or on. Reach playside A gap. Backside: Scoop playside gap.
The playside RB blocks the second man outside the TE. He tries to hook the DB inside.
The only read is the QB reading the first man outside the TE for pitch.
