Flag Football Shot With Short Answers
By FirstDown PlayBook on Aug 7, 2020

Today’s 5v5 flag football play is a good example of how you can coach your young quarterback on how to push the ball down the field. This is hard to do with a young quarterback.

Often times the arm strength is just not there yet. This is why the shot often has to be designed so that the ball is out and up quickly. You, as the coach and your quarterback should not be offended by this because it is actually how it happens in the NFL passing game as well.

Many a “deep ball” has been thrown by the quarterback taking a one or three step drop. Today we are highlighting this 5v5 flag play that pushes the ball down the field with a corner route. The great thing about it is that there are short answers as well.

Most of you coaching in a 5v5 flag football league do not have blocking so you also don’t have protection. Your quarterback protection comes in the form of your route concepts and where to go with the ball. This short video covers a good example of a flag football play we think you will want to include this fall.
