4v4 Flag Football Boot Option RPO


By FirstDown PlayBook on May 17, 2020

Sometimes when you are coaching flag football with smaller numbers, it seems like your play calling options are very limited. After all, you have one player snapping the ball and another playing quarterback. That only leaves two players to be creative with right? A 4v4 flag football coach can feel limited with the plays that can be called.

FirstDown PlayBook tries to work through a lot of that for you. This 4v4 flag football play is a good example. We know some of you have the option to run the quarterback and others do not. This play gives your quarterback plenty of options either way, regardless of your rules.

Of course the great thing is that if you want to edit this play to make it fit your system then the FirstDown PlayBook Draw & Edit Tool makes that easy for you.
