I’ve got a new article up over at Strong Football that breaks down the triple option quarterback’s responsibilities. It’s the first part of a two-part series and has a lot of information. Check out the excerpt below…

Developing the option quarterback is an essential aspect of most offenses, and this is certainly true for option football. In an option football scheme it is the single most important element of success. The reality is an option football play can be blocked perfectly, but if the option quarterback makes an incorrect read, the result will likely be a loss, or worse, a turnover. In light of this, lets break down exactly what the option quarterback does in the triple option from the time he breaks the huddle to when the whistle is blown.  Click here to read the rest of the article.

Head over to his site and check it out. While your there, take a look around at the other great content. Coach Peterson is an awesome source of football knowledge. I particularly enjoyed his posts on using the option to keep defenses gap sound and why offensive line coaches need to understand defensive run fits. Both are excellent reads and I appreciate the opportunity to work with @CoachCP.

In Other News…

I am also working on a few other things to feed your football addictions. I am currently developing a piece on discussing offensive linemen development in the zone scheme. More to come on this as it develops. Additionally, I am working on the first installment of my Ride and Decide section that will review products, applications, books and other various things of interest to those of us in the coaching profession.

Also, for those of you who have subscribed to my email list, I am also working diligently on my Flexbone eBook. I am hoping to have it completed by the end of January. Know the Option. Run the Option. Love the Option.
