Wildcat Formation

wild*cat for*ma*tion

What Is The Definition Of The Wildcat Formation In Football?

1. This offensive strategy in football involves another player (usually the running back) receiving the snap instead of the quarterback. The quarterback then takes the position of a receiver, creating an imbalance in the offensive line that often confuses the defense. This is considered to be a type of trick play, but it has gained popularity in recent years.

Another common formation of the wildcat, would be to take the quarterback out of the game for a play and put in an extra running back or receiver into the game instead.
