RUN N SHOOT in TEX-BONE: Answer for Defense: Screen/Shovel/Draw and Counter


Tired of defenses putting 10 in the box to stop your triple option run attack? Do you need to spice things up a bit?  Throw the ball more? Then this course is for you. This is the third of a 3-course series by Southwestern University head coach Joe Austin.   

  • Learn how to adapt the Run N Shoot to a Triple Option Attack
  • Become a better coach by understanding the history and philosophy of the Run N Shoot
  • Understand why the Choice Route is the foundation of the Run N Shoot Attack

WHAT IS THE TEX-BONE? The Tex-Bone is triple option for the 21st century. Combines traditional option with modern spread into a Texas-sized offense that leaves defenses scrambling to cover it.

  • Classic option schemes ran from multiple spread formations (and flexbone variations)
  • First option system to use Power as the base triple scheme
  • A tool box:
  • Option (power, speed, belly, veer)
  • One back runs (isos, counters)
  • Play action heavy
  • Pass elements from various systems (including Run and Shoot)
  • Use it in its entirety or select the tools that enhance your offense
