The Exeter Falcons are a Flag American Football team based in Exeter, Devon.
Flag Football is just like full contact American Football but without all of the cumbersome and expensive equipment. Instead of bone-crunching tackles, players wear a flag belt, and are tackled by having their flag taken by an opposing player.
Flag Football is a fast-paced, 5-a-side, fun-filled variation of the tackle game. Incorporating all the skill positions of the 11-a-side game, a quarterback will have 4 eligible receivers and has 4 chances to get the ball past the half-way line of a 55-yard field, in order to be granted 4 more chances to score a touchdown. Meanwhile, the 5 defensive backs will do everything they can to stop the offence from moving the ball down-field.
