Hank allows a coach to give a quarterback clear definitive coaching on the read. If you want to read the open receiver it fits perfectly. If you want to read defenders, that’s even better.

We really like Hank for a flag football play. Today, we are going to take you through the coaching progression for a 7v7 flag football version of the play. We will detail it vs cover 2, vs cover 3 and man coverage.

After that, we will apply the same coaching progression to a 5v5 flag football play. As you will see, the teaching remains much the same. You just need to adjust your splits and quarterback instruction slightly to fit your age group.
