with Chuck Peterson, former Offensive Coordinator United States Air Force Academy.
Coach Peterson begins with the mechanics of both the quarterback and fullback to insure a proper `mesh' in providing sound ball handling and preventing fumbles. He then goes through the four different reads the quarterback must make in determining whether he keeps the ball or hands it to the fullback. He also goes through the proper reads to determine whether the ball is pitched or not. Coach Peterson breaks down three plays within the Triple Option Series - the inside veer, midline option and a play action package off both running plays. He diagrams and demonstrates each play against both 7-man fronts (i.e. 50, 4-3) and 8-man fronts (i.e. eagle), runs them to both the strong and weak side and from different formations, breaking down responsibilities for each position. To counter the defense, Peterson draws up a play action series for both option plays, including pass protection assignments and pass routes. This is a terrific tape detailing one of the game's most successful offenses.
