Flag Football Concepts In The NFL? You Betcha.
By FirstDown PlayBook on Sep 27, 2019


Every year in football new trends show up and as all good coaches know, good ideas are meant to be stolen and used for your team as well. We have spent the early parts of the 2019 season with our friends and partners over at USA Football looking at this.

Keith Grabowski and Zach Dunn do a very good job of keeping up with the new trends and we talk about them each and every week. One of the trends that has shown up in 2019 or maybe we should say it has shown up a lot more is the use of misdirection offenses.

Today we have made a short video that takes a look at four FirstDown PlayBook plays. One is from the NFL. One is from Notre Dame and the other two are FirstDown PlayBook youth and flag football plays. We think you will agree that the use of the jet sweep misdirection plays is something every football coach at every level has come to value and put in their game plan.
