Breaking down the New Mexico Shotgun Triple Option Offense

by Football For Coaches
Breaking down the New Mexico Shotgun Triple Option Offense


The New Mexico Triple Option attack combines the ease and reliability of the Zone Read with the deception and gashing attack of the triple option. 

In this course, I will break down the basic triple option scheme that I have observed New Mexico run against the most popular defenses coaches see today.

Also included are the complimentary plays New Mexico uses to counter their triple option attack. 

I do not represent New Mexico football in any way, this is simply my interpretation of what they run. 

If you are wanting to incorporate this style of offense or if you just want to understand it better, this course is a great way to better understand the Zone Triple Option offensive strategy.

A .pdf playbook download is also included that details triple option rules and has each play in the course fully diagrammed against the defense. 

Save time figuring out blocking assignments that work against everything.

New Mexico's Base Triple Option blocking scheme against multiple fronts is included. 

Triple option blocking rules are based on New Mexico's numbering system which allows them to I.D. every front effectively.
