Chalk Talk Videos

Option Central Chalk Talk videos combine a video presentation and a play illustration with narration and telestration to deliver a different type of educational resource to Option football coaches.  Launched in the Summer of 2013, the Play of the Day Chalk Talk series now exceeds 70 plays.  

Two recent examples are Volume 44 - the Post Wheel route, and Volume 56 - a Gun Triple against a stemming Defense. Watch and Listen as Coach Tony DeMeo chalks and talks his way through these two plays that appear in Volumes 5 and 6 of the Triple Gun Virtual Playbook series respectively .


In each play included in the Virtual Playbook DVD series, Coach DeMeo takes you through "big picture" things like the strategy and game situation, and the "little things" like QB reads and progressions, run blocking and pass protection schemes, and pre and post-snap adjustments.

The Chalk Talk concept was expanded in Feb 2015 to include appearances from other coaches in "x and O" discussions. 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".
