Play of the Day with audio now on our YouTube Channel
The Option Central YouTube Channel, includes virtually every one of the free videos on this news page and those from previous years, our video page, and our Play of the Day Chalk Talk page. We just added The Stretch Pass from Coach Tony DeMeo's Triple Gun Offense, which Triple Gunnners know is his favorite Play Action pass in a new type of video format.
We worked with Coach DeMeo to produce a variation of his Play of the Day series that adds voiceover from Coach DeMeo, who introduces the play and mentions a few specific things to watch. The new format is shorter in length and less detailed than the 85+ Play of the Day Chalk Talks and similar videos that are included here at Option Central in our Members Video Library, on Coach DeMeo's Virtual Playbook series DVDs, and in many of his CoachTube courses. We think the audio adds something and plan to produce more of these with Coach DeMeo.
Coaching the Gun Triple CoachTube course now available
Coaching the Gun Triple, our latest CoachTube course produced in collaboration with Tony DeMeo, focuses entirely on the core play of The Triple Gun Offense - The Gun Triple. In Coaching the Gun Triple , Coach DeMeo explains and illustrates the details of executing the Gun Triple- the play that is designed to be run 25 to 30 times in a game. Included is the use of formations and motion to get the look you want, get a head start on the play, and put defenders in a bad position. Also included are detailed assignments and techniquites for each position, blocking adjustments, and Gun Triple variations.
Like our most recent courses, Coaching the Gun Triple combines presentation material from Coach DeMeo's Triple Gun webinars with specially selected game video in our Play of the Day Chalk Talk format. The new course follows The Triple Gun Jet Sweep series and the Triple Gun Empty package - released earlier this year, and is available now on the CoachTube platform.

Adding the Jet Sweep and Empty Package to an Option (or any) Offense: Two new CoachTube courses now available
As we continue to make more of our originally-produced content available on the CoachTube platform, our starting point of late has been the Triple Gun Webinars that we sponsored a number of years ago. Still relevant today, the recordings of Tony DeMeo's 8 Triple Gun webinars that spanned two years and covered 16 different topics remain widely popular with our members who are able to view them in their original form in our Video Library.
Since publishing our first CoachTube course a few years ago, we've fine-tuned our courses to combine optimized presentation material with specially-selected videos from our Chalk Talk library.

Attacking Defenses with the Triple Gun Offense - our new CoachTube Course series is now available
Attacking the 3-4 Defense with the Triple Gun Offense, the third in the our latest series of CoachTube courses, focuses on the weaknesses inherent in a 3-4 Defense and how to attack the 3-4 with the Triple Gun (and for that matter - ANY Offense !)

Also included in this latest series of courses is Attacking the 4-3 Defense (released earlier this year), and Attacking the 4-4 Defense (released in December 2020).
While Option Central Members already have access to full length recordings of Coach DeMeo's entire series of webinars in our Member Resource Library, courses like Attacking the 3-4 Defense with the Triple Gun Offense, like others in the series, deliver an enhanced presentation of the webinar material. The new courses feature short, topical-based lessons that are interspersed with Chalk Talk videos that were hand-selected by Coach DeMeo to illustrate the course content with game video that features narration and telestration, along with "Chalk Talk" style play diagrams.
Once again, we have good news for Option Central Members !
