    A-11 Football Offense

    Anybody familiar with the A-11 football offense?

    All 11 players are eligible to catch the ball and it works by introducing such unpredictability into where a quarterback will pass the ball that it baffles the defending team and gives the offense a better chance of breaking through.

    Its a legal football offense for most high schools.

    Yeah, actually my high school's football team started using this because they suck at everything else. Interesting offense, but not very practical. Running game doesn't exist.

    I do believe this has been discussed before.

    Makes me kind of want to be a high school football coach now and try to implement it. Looks cool.

    Re: A-11 Football Offense

    Pretty cool idea. Seems alot like the 3 point offense in college bb where you put five shooters on the floor, lob up 3 pointers all game and don't even play defense. Hit 1/3 of your shots and you're set (150 shots=150 points). It'll work for a while in certain situations, but it won't last.
