Working through the details on this. Now, if I can muster the courage to put it in.

The longer I coach, the lesser I know.

Hi Coach, 

Are you planning to run this as a triple option?  or a called double option?  

Seems a bit much for youth, what age group are you looking at here?  

To do this right is going to take a serious time commitment, are you going to have the time to develop it?  

I like the scheme, but wonder if it is age-appropriate.  If you have the ability to teach it, and they can run it, looks like fun. 

Umm.... why does that 6 ft tall 9 yr old have a goatee...?

@coyote All valid points. I haven't committed yet. The mesh/read/pull/read/pitch practice would have to be polished before regular practice starts. 100s of reps needed. Could call dive straight away and remove that complexity.

Looks good, Troy.  As we spoke yesterday, I ran my option against 3 teams (only keep/pitch option). None of those 3 teams had any clue how to defend it and I didn't run it enough to give them a chance to adjust if they did. 

The way you have it diagrammed is outside veer (as I understand it). This is great because it gives your QB precious time to make that dive read. 

If I'm defending it, I will try to take away your dive and keep, forcing you to rely on the pitch because it's a higher risk than the other two options. I played in the 70's and 80's when option was king and back then, CB had the pitch man. So it comes down to whether or not my OLB and/or ILB can beat your block and defend the keep. However, between your power to both sides, sweep, wedge, counters and passes AND the diabolical nature of the side saddle, this is going to be VERY difficult for my LBs to read.

One bit of advice is that my QB getting depth tended to be very bad for us. We tell him to run straight down the line, but with the bootleg, he still bellies out a little. 

Here's the only clip I have of an option play.  We didn't film vs LW and Mahonz missed our TD in the C-bowl. We do have an option keep that preceded that TD, though.

@gumby_in_co that pitch is sexy. Nice play.

Here's the keep in the C-bowl

Then the very next play, a pitch that I forgot about

We followed that up with an incomplete bootleg pass to a TE that was open by 20 yards, then a fumbled snap, and finally an option right pitch that scored from 10 yards out. Mahoney caught the celebration, LOL.
