Flat Back

What is Flat Back?

Flat Back meaning Flat back (sometimes with three or four players) is a system where three or four defensive players play “flat” across the back and mark/guard space. While there is some depth involved (depending on the position of the ball), there is no sweeper position, so the players are more flat across the field.
