Att

1. What is att short for?

Attempts

Att is a sports abbreviation for attempts. It is commonly used in football and refers to the number of times a QB has thrown a pass, a RB has rushed the ball, and a punt or kick returner has returned the ball.

The abbreviation is an important stat in sports because it shows the productivity of a player or team. In football, a QB's completion percentage is the number of completions divided by the number of attempts. The att abbreviation is also used to determine the average number of yards a RB gains per carry by dividing his total yards by the number of att.

Example

"He only has 7 att today but somehow has accumulated 140 yds on the ground.
Wow, that's 20 yds for each att!"
