I’m in high school football, currently playing as a wide receiver and corner. I was wondering what is an easy way to memorize plays. I have such a hard time doing this when the coaches end up calling the play or when they signal it with their hands. I really need help on how to memorize and get used to this tactic they use with their hands in order to be successful. Can someone help me with this?

    The football tag is used for "Soccer" questions, as this in an international site, and most people know it by that name – Ginge Jun 2 '19 at 3:47

Make a video of each hand signal and draw the play associated with each hand signal. My school's football team also does a lot of hand signals and this helped me out. Also I don't know if your coach does this, but my coach's hand signals can be related to the plays. For example, one play we run is called "Paper" and my coach's hand signal is opening a book. Another play we run is "Flex" and the hand signal is a bicep flex.
