Why Your 7on7 Play Drawings Have Linemen
We don’t get this a lot anymore, but from time to time we get questions about how we design our 7on7 play drawings. The question goes something like this. I can’t find any 7on7 plays in FirstDown PlayBook. When I choose 7on7 football plays the drawings all have 11 players on them.
First things first. When you say this, you are correct. Also yes, you are looking at FirstDown PlayBook 7on7 football plays. FirstDown PlayBook draws all of our pass plays with very distinct features. All of them designed to help you coach your 7on7 offense. One of them is that the offensive line is included in the 7on7 play drawing. Let’s briefly touch on this as we explain why this is the case.
If you run a good 7on7 offense you are depending on spacing and timing for success. The 7on7 plays you run are based on the same plays that you run with 11 players on the field.
If your tight end lines up four feet from where the center is then you have a problem. When your slot is lined up where your tight end should be, that’s not good either.
The FirstDown PlayBook drawings allow you and your players to understand where you want them to line up. You will likely have a hose or cones when you get out on the field. This will help you make sure your spacing is correct when you take the field.Your players can use the reference point on the field to get the correct split.
One last thing about this. If you don’t want the linemen in your drawing, you can always edit your 7on7 plays and delete them. This is the beauty of FirstDown PlayBook. We don’t want to coach your team. We want to help you coach your team better.
