X’s & O’s: Triple Option

The Triple Option featured here is your basic look against a 3-4, 4-3, and 4-4, and like other Triple Option plays, it uses misdirection to move the ball. Overall, it’s a play based on the option run, but it uses three players instead of two players to intensify misdirection.
