Shorter Field Means Different 7on7 Plays Calls
By FirstDown PlayBook on Mar 24, 2019

There are a lot of things that are different when it comes to comparing 7on7 football to eleven man tackle football. Obviously no one is hitting anyone and if you think the mindset of a 7on7  quarterback quarterback is not different from a quarterback playing with a pass rush then you are dreaming.

However, there are some things that are true for both of these types of football, One of these things is that when the field shortens the play calls get harder for the offense. Once again, the tendency for a defense to heat an offense up in this area is missing but the offensive coordinator still has to change his play calls to fit the shortened field. This is great practice for a young high school quarterback who will need to learn some of the hidden rules that go along with quarterback play on the red zone.

FirstDown PlayBook understands this and not only do we have a red zone area but we break this area up into four distinct areas for you as you drive the ball closer to the end zone. So if your 7on7 team is moving the ball up and down the field but you need answers for how to stick it in the end zone then FirstDown PlayBook has more than a few to share with you.

We’ve included one of our empty formation red zone plays for you below. There’s plenty more where that one came from if you are looking for 7on7 red zone pass game schemes!
