I'll be doing a five day series this week, counting down from #5.
First up: The Ace Formation
No. 5: Ace Formation
Base Personnel: Quarterback and one running back
Additional Personnel: Three wide receivers, one tight end or two wide receivers and two tight ends
Suggested Players: Quincy Enunwa, Kenny Bell, Jamal Turner, Kyler Reed/Ben Cotton, Rex Burkhead/Ameer Abdullah
The Ace formation’s signature is the backfield setup. The quarterback is under center and one running back is five to six yards back. The variation comes in the number of wide receivers and tight ends.
This formation allows a team to line up as many as four wide receivers while leaving the option of multiple tight ends allowing a team to utilize it in a variety of ways, from deep passes to outside runs.
