The Wheelie from our 8 on 8 flag football plays collection is a great example of a go-to play out of a very tough to defend formation with an athletic team and a mobile quarterback. It excels at getting your players into space, running a zone-beating 3+ player flood route to each side of the field while also using long crossing routes to get separation from man defenders. Your motion back is a wildcard that can be altered into different variations, such as wheeling out of the backfield, a star back option for throwbacks, an option pitch man, hand-off or alter the motion entirely to run a regular route. If your QB can buy a little time, this play has alot of potential to get your guys open and into space effectively.
It’s best in short to intermediate down and distance situations, against zone or man. It’s not meant for the home run, and the corner routes are primarily decoys. It’s also longer developing, so best with a mobile quarterback who can buy some time.
