When most people hear the words "Spread Option" one thing that rarely comes to mind is the Run Game. In this football DVD, Anthony Pratley demonstrates how to run the triple option run game out of the Spread Option by using the Pistol formation to create an effective rushing attack.

The innovator of the Pistol Spread Option Offense, Coach Pratley, draws up the zone, veer, option, midline and trap against many different fronts. Then takes it a step further--he teaches you how to run the triple option on the backside of these basic plays, showing how the blocking and reads stay the same no matter what the defense gives you. He also shows a unique way to teach and recognize what kind of option needs to be run against certain defenses.

All of these plays out of the pistol spread formation, if run correctly, will be very difficult for any defense to defend.

The basic rules and blocking assignments make it quick and easy to teach yet highly effective on any given play. Pratley also takes you through game film after every chalk board session to really bring home the concept.

Having a traditional option on the backside of play is like expanding your playbook three-fold, but only teaching a few basic plays.
