Chalk Talk Videos

Option Central Chalk Talk videos combine a video presentation and a play "drawing" presentation with narration and telestration to deliver a new type of educational resource to Option football coaches.   Launched in the Summer of 2013,  the Play of the Day Chalk Talk series now exceeds 60 plays.  

One of our most popular recent Chalk Talks from the Triple Gun Virtual Playbook DVD series is Volume 44 - the Post Wheel route. Watch Coach DeMeo Chalk and Talk his way through one of the 16 plays off the Gun Triple and Jet Sweep from The Triple Gun Virtual Playbook Volume 5: Play Action passing.


All 16 plays on Volume 5 of the Virtual Playbook DVD, like the one above, are accompanied by narration and telestration as Coach DeMeo takes you through each play, the QB reads and progressions, the protection scheme and blitz pickups, as well as the patterns and route conversions that adjust after the snap based on the Defense.

The Chalk Talk concept was expanded in Feb 2015 to include appearances from other coaches. This Tony Talk edition of Chalk Talk featured Coach DeMeo interviewing some of the best coaching minds in Option Football and beyond.  One recent guest was Manny Matsakis, an offensive innovator and the creator of the Triple Shoot Offense. Matsakis and Host Tony DeMeo talked about the Jet Sweep, the Triple Shoot Offense that Matsakis created, and a new wrinkle in the Triple Shoot - what Matsakis refers to as "The Accelerator Technique".
