About Option Central Videos


The Option Central video 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 one of our public-facing Chalk Talk video pages.  Sign up for our periodic Option Central Newsletter and take advantage of the "freeviews" included in each issue.

Members have unlimited, any time, anywhere, any device access to our entire video library, including our two largest collections - The Pistol Option Offense series produced by Coach Rob Zeitman while he was the Offensive Coordinator at Ferris State, and The Triple Gun series featuring Tony DeMeo. The Triple Gun collection incorporates our entire Play of the Day Chalk Talk series - now totaling over 70 videos, as well as over 16 hours of video recordings from Coach DeMeo's Triple Gun 2014 and 2015 Webinar series.   The videos in these two collections go far beyond the typical 1-2 hour clinic presentation in their content, and are topically organized as "cutups" or easy and convenient viewing.

Also included are two Triple Gun Quarterback drill videos, one 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, and Indoor Drills - a 2 part series in which Coach Tony DeMeo conducts a two day instructional clinic in a Wisconsin Indoor facility for a High School Quarterback. Both are packed with Techniques, Fundamentals and Coaching points that can be applied to virtually any offense.

Our collection also includes material that can benefit Defensive coaches who want to better understand what their Offensive opponent is thinking and trying to do against them.  A number of videos "tackle" this subject - including Chalk Talks 49 through 59, the final hour of the 4th Triple Gun Webinar series on 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.  Both coaches explore the use of formations, motion and unbalanced sets, including their approach to attacking a Goal Line Defense.

Other clinic-style video cutups from Tony DeMeo introduce his Triple Gun Offense in a pair of 2 hour sessions on the Gun Triple Run and Pass Game. Watch these, and you'll better appreciate Coach DeMeo's 60+ Play of the Day Chalk Talks (Produced by Option Central) that feature him presenting a play in a variety of ways - with game footage, a play illustration created with Coach's Office, telestration and voice over - just like the one below.

Option Central includes a number of rare "classics", including Quarterback Drill videos like the one below that was produced by Coach Larry Beckish when he served on the staff of Lou Holtz at the University of Minnesota.

Other "classics" include the Option on Me video series and 3 other videos from Coach Jerry Campbell that cover the "under-center" Option game in great detail. A total of eight hours of instruction that complements Coach Campbell's written material.

This video trailer is from the video Installing the Midline Option.

The Option Central video library also includes bonus videos that are applicable to coaching the Quarterback and Running Back positions in any type of offense, as well as a collection of special team skill videos. 

A case in point is Running Back Drills and Fundamentals -a video packed with timeless drills and techniques for coaching the Running Back position in any Offensive attack. Courtesy of Coach Jeff Nixon, now Offensive Coordinator at Baylor, and a long0time NFL Coach with the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles this video was produced while Jeff was at Shippensburg University, UT Chattanooga, and Temple University. Coach Nixon has used many of these same drills in the NFL, first with the Philadelphia Eagles and later with the Dolphins.

In the sample video below, taken from the first edition of Coach Nixon's Running Back Drills and Fundamentals video, Jeff introduces Agility and Ball Carrying drills with the help of John Kuhn, who was then a Shippensburg University Fullback . Kuhn played fullback in the NFL for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and most recently with the New Orleans Saints.
