There are several formations.. Several meaning many.. based upon the type of offence you are running. Two backs, 3backs,..3 recievers, 2 tight-ends..in depends on your personnel.

Yes. As long as there are at least 7 players on the line of scrimmage, any formation is legal.

Technically yes. But that formation is called the pistol formation which is a modified formation invented by current university of Nevada head coach. It is not used in the NFL and is not largely widespread in college football although it is not rare to see it.

A-11 Football is an offensive system used in some levels American football in which a team's offensive players are deemed eligible to catch a forward pass - as determined by the formation they're aligned in, and not according to their jersey number and formation - as is the case in basic American football.In basic American football using a five fixed offensive linemen set, there are only 36 possibilities of which player can receive the snap and advance with the ball because the offensive linemen are not interchangeable within the formation with other offensive players - the jersey-numbering requirement does not allow it.

A football team manager is responsible for selecting the players for matches and setting their formation. He also motivates the players before and during the competition.

A-11 Football is an offensive system used in some levels American football in which a team's offensive players are deemed eligible to catch a forward pass - as determined by the formation they're aligned in, and not according to their jersey number and formation - as is the case in basic American football. A-11 Football allows all of the team's offensive players to be interchangeable in their sets because they are not restricted by jersey numbers, like they are in basic football. A-11 Football allows for 16,632 possible post-snap scenarios of which player can receive the snap and advance with the football because any player can align in any spot within any formation - thereby making A-11 players interchangeable. In basic American football using a five fixed offensive linemen set, there are only 36 possibilities of which player can receive the snap and advance with the ball because the offensive linemen are not interchangeable within the formation with other offensive players - the jersey-numbering requirement does not allow it.
