TEX-BONE Power Option & Power Read Pass

by Joe Austin
TEX-BONE Power Option & Power Read Pass


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 all

Course 9 is the PLAY ACTION PASSES off Power Option and Power Read

Pass Protection & Route Combos.  Including Blitz pickups.

Game footage shows examples of how to sell the play action pass by making the protections look like Power Option and Power Read run.

5-man Protections allows offense to get 5 receivers into the pass routes.

POWER OPTION PROTECTION pulls the backside Guard to the playside C-gap and asks the FB to pickup the LB.

POWER READ PROTECTION also pulls the backside Guard to playside C, however RB is faking the sweep instead of blocking a LB.


--> Flood & Quick Dig Concepts.

--> Vertical Seams.

--> Downfield Shots.

You will see the pass route combos and how to read the defense.


There are 7 to 10 tags that isolate your best Receiver on their DB.


Creates confusion for the defense that can give your offense the edge you are looking for.

--> Motion to Wing.

--> Same Side Wing.

5-man protection off Power Read fake? 15 different routes to run? This was a steal for $20. And Coach Austin does great job explaining which route to call vs which coverage

Great course by Coach Austin! This concept alone can give 15 different versions of a headache for a defense. Possibilities are scary. Highly recommend this course.

Coach Austin does a great job with this presentation! Great job in describing the plays and breakdown the film. It’s something that every offense can use either as complete offense or change of pace. I highly recommend this for anyone
