Many coaches are interested in adopting the Spread Option attack firstpopularized by Coach Erskine "Erk" Russell at Georgia Southern University. The factthat one variation of Coach Russell's formation is identical with the Run-and-ShootSpread formation first developed by Coach Glenn "Tiger" Ellison has led some pioneersto combine the two attacks. The potential benefits are great. Defending the TripleOption requires disciplined "assignment football" by the defense, while stopping the Run-and-Shoot's quick passing game puts a very different set of demands on defenders --the offense has the ability to control the ball with the pass, yet one slip and the defensegives up six points.Coach Al Black's excellent book, Coaching Run-And-Shoot Football (HardingPress, 1991), details how he joined the powerful Run-and-Shoot offense of Coach Darrel"Mouse" Davis with a Triple Option attack. Coach Black's most important contributionwas the addition of several play-action passes which combine Run-and-Shoot principleswith the incredibly strong play-fake of the quarterback-fullback mesh. I have includedtwo of them here.This playbook contains the bare bones of a Spread Option Run-and-Shootattack. Complementary plays are not included, although coaches should be able to seefrom the base plays how others might be added -- a midline option, counter option,shovel pass, screen pass, and others.A word of caution, however: it is far more important to develop the timing of theTriple than to use up precious practice minutes installing a misdirection play. Runningthe Triple to perfection is
more important than running three or four plays fairlywell. Similarly, the fact that the Run-and-Shoot presented here "only" consists of threepasses and three runs (plus Coach Black's two play-action passes) should not foolanyone. Another reason the Run-and-Shoot fits in well with the Option concept is thatthe quarterback need only read the defense, which is forced by the formation to spreadacross the width of the field and by motion to declare its intentions, in order to deliver theball to an open man.In other words, spend your practice reps on the core plays of the Run-and-Shootas you do with the Triple. These nine plays will give you all the tools you need to defeatyour opponents.
