THE KEYS:
•Receivers must know all assignments/rules within a given route package,
because you may be asked to execute any part of it!
•Receivers must know in any given formation whether they are the Inside,
Outside, or Middle (if there are 3 on a side) receiver, and whether they are
on the frontside or backside! They must also realize that MOTION by
themselves or others can change their position!
