This is a flag football play that I have used with much success during our 7 on 7 flag football season. This play is best used against man to man coverage. Many youth football cornerbacks will not take away the inside release, so this play should work consistently.
This flag football play features three receivers to the right side of the field and two receivers to the left side of the field. The (3) slot receiver will take an outside release and drive his defender up the field. The (2) inside receiver will also take an outside step and drive his route up the field. The (1) split-end will take one outside step then run his inside route. It is important that the (1) receiver has his inside foot forward. This is crucial because the first step should be with his outside foot. This will make the defensive back lean outside. Once the DB leans outside he will not be able to recover. This flag football play is all about timing. You will want your split-end (1) to cut right off the back of the (2) and (3) receivers. When the receiver catches the ball you want him to get up the field. The QB must be ready to execute a quick and accurate throw.
The (5) receiver will run a fade pattern. We want an outside release so that cornerback turns his back to the play. The (4) receiver will do a five yard out pattern. If this play is not open, make sure your receivers come back to the QB and get open. It is very important that the inside receivers run their pattern hard up the field. This will take those safeties off the hashes and up the field. This will create more space inside and up the field.
