About Option Central Videos


Our collection includes instructional videos, clinic-style presentations, and "Chalk Talk" recordings that are recorded and produced by Option Central.  Our news page is updated as new videos are added to our Member Resource Library or public-facing Chalk Talk video page.  Sign up for our periodic Option Central Newsletter and take advantage of the "freeviews" included in each issue.

Recent additions include the Pistol Option Offense series from Coach Rob Zeitman of Ferris State, over 50 Chalk Talks, with Tony DeMeo (including 49 from the Play of the Day Chalk Talk series), and over 16 hours of video recordings from Coach DeMeo's Triple Gun 2014 and 2015 Webinar series.   These videos are not simply uploads of 1-2 hour sessions, but topically organized "cutups" created by Option Central for easy and convenient viewing by our Members.

A recent addition is Triple Gun Quarterback drills, a collaborative effort between Option Central and Coach DeMeo that shows the actual teaching progression used by Coach DeMeo while conducting a Triple Gun 2 Day Camp for a first time Triple Gun team.

Option Central also produced this Leadership Webinar based on Coach DeMeo's new book - Commonsense Rules for Everyday Leaders.

Our collection includes material that can benefit Defensive coaches who want to better understand what their Offensive opponent is thinking and trying to do against them.  Two recent examples include our recentaly added Triple Gun Webinar recordings - specifically the final hour of the 4th Triple Gun Webinar series in which Coach DeMeo "tackled" the subject of Attacking the 4-4 Defense with the Triple Gun, and Volumes 9 and 10 of the Ferris State Pistol Option Offense series on Game Planning and Situational Offense. 

Coaches DeMeo and Zeitman cover their respective offenses in-depth, and also provide a look into their approach to Game Planning, Play Selection and attacking the major Defensive schemes utilized today.  their videos are definitely worth a look from Defensive Coordinators who are tasked with defending ANY type of Option Attack.   Both coaches explore the use of formations, motion and unbalanced sets, including their approach to attacking a Goal Line Defense.

Also included in the Option Central Members Video section are over two hours of video that illustrates drills and techniques for coaching the Running Back position in any Offensive attack. These Running Back drill videos are courtesy of Coach Jeff Nixon, now an NFL Coach in with the Miami Dolphins.
