Elements Of The NFL In This 6v6 Flag Play
By FirstDown PlayBook on Oct 25, 2019

This 6v6 flag football play comes off of a designed handoff to the strong side of the formation. The quarterback will fake the handoff to the running back and then boot opposite to the weak side.

This play exhibits many of the same strategies we see being used at the high school, college and even NFL levels this season!

QUARTERBACK:
SHOTGUN: TAKE THE SNAP AND EXTEND THE BALL FOR RB.
SELL THE FAKE TO THE BALL CARRIER BUT HAVE YOUR EYES ON YOUR PROGRESSION READ.
BOOT TO THE WEAK SIDE GOING THRU YOUR PROGRESSION.

READ: F TO CENTER TO Z
READ THIS LOW TO HIGH TO RUN.
QUICK FLASH FAKE THE RB AND LOOK FOR THE F IN THE FLAT FIRST.
