TEX-BONE Power Optionby Joe Austin
The Tex-Bone is triple option for the 21st century
Combines Traditional Option with Modern Spread in a Texas-sized offense that leaves defenses scrambling to cover it all
The TEX-BONE System is built upon the POWER OPTION play. The TEX-BONE is the First Option System to use Power as its base scheme.
--> Creates Horizontal space across the line of scrimmage which creates large running lanes for dive back and a wider alley for the Quarterback.
--> Good vs every front; RUN IT AGAINST ANYTHING ANYTIME.
--> Good against blitz. NO CHECKS, EVER !!! You can always run it the way it was called.
--> Rule based play. Offensive players do not slow down if defense shifts.
--> Easily paired with play-action and other run plays...These have been around longer than Jon Gruden's "Spider 2Y Bananna!"
