The FirstDown PlayBook Hitch & Pitch NFL Flag Football play has been a hit for the last couple of years now. It’s easy to see why. It is a clever play, if we do say so ourselves. However, what has endeared this play to most of our flag football coaches is that it involves the much ignored Center in flag football.

The very first player many (the smart ones) coaches look for when they start coaching a young flag football team is a center. Makes sense right? No snap. No play. What typically happens next is that same coach begins to design plays. Guess who gets left out? Yep, the Center.

The Hitch & Pitch NFL Flag Play Gets Your Center Involved

The FirstDown PlayBook Hitch & Pitch NFL Flag play took that into consideration. It gives one of your most important players a chance to get in on the action. The Center can realistically get the ball without running 15 yards down the field. This is true regardless of the number of players you play with.

The second great thing about this is the ball is out quick. Most young NFL Flag quarterbacks get sacked before they ever get a pass play off. This is why running the ball is normally better. This allows an NFL Flag football coach to adjust the receiver splits to the quarterback’s ability. This play can be executed with a short screen pass and then a flip or handoff of the ball.
