The next generation spread...A-11
A team last year tried to run something similar, the problem is with the eligible number rule. On normal plays, you have to have at least 5 ineligible numbers on the field. Now you can line them up in different places, but there has to be five. Last year it was illegal, at least in our game (we shut that team out, so they were trying to catch us by suprise)
How this offense is claiming to be legal is because of the free kick rule. By putting one more than 7 yards back they say they are in a free kick formation. All can be eligible numbers in that formation. http://www.humphinternet.com/A11/pdf/A11ApprovalProcess.pdf
this is the website for the new offense. http://a11offense.com/
We shall see how it plays out.
