The base formation involves a center flanked by two tight ends, with three receivers to the right and three to the left. And two quarterbacks in the backfield.
According to the website A11offense.com (HERE), it describes the offense as:
"An innovative offense blending aspects of the spread option, West Coast & Run-and-Shoot. Your team can use the A-11 as a 'package' to supplement your offense & feature up to eleven players as potential threats, and even two Quarterbacks in the shotgun."
The base offense consists of:
- A center and two tight ends surrounding the football,
- Three receivers split right,
- Three receivers split left,
- Two quarterbacks standing behind in a shotgun, one of whom has to be at least 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage.
