Shotgun Formation (Offense) Diagram

"You have a shotgun formation any time the QB lines up about 5 yards behind the center and receives a snap rather than a handoff from the C. Typically, this formation uses only 1 back with 3 WRs and 1 TE, although any variation of players in the backfield is possible. The advantage of the QB’s position on this formation is that he can see the defensive alignment more clearly and has more time to throw the ball. Teams with excellent QBs and an aggressive passing game—like Indianapolis and New England—have used the shotgun as their standard offensive formation in recent years." []

The Football solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software contains a set of libraries, templates and samples allowing football specialists to draw football diagrams with ease. A set of predesigned fields and positions allows producing football diagrams without any drawing experience.

A combination of the "Football Fields" and "Football Positions" libraries gives you an ability to create a football-related drawing in seconds. Follow next steps to create you own football schema:

  • From the "Football Fields" library drop a field object to your document
  • From the "Football Positions" library drop all positions object you need to your document
  • Place positions on the field according to your drawing idea
  • Add arrows or text labels if needed.

Producing a set of football diagrams, for a example a set of popular offenses, you may significantly save time using multipage document. In this case you put a field object to background page, and then place positions objects to each page. Don't mind to put offense name to page title, this will help you navigate through the document.
