Strength and reaction time is what makes a great football athlete. This drills intention is to greatly help quickness and accuracy on the field that may reduce errors and boost the likelihood of great plays. The drill setup is a pad or place on the field with 5 dots about a base from one another forming an X shape, exactly in the same shape as you'd see diamonds arranged on a number five card in a poker deck.
The gamer will begin by placing a base on the trunk two dots and then jumps together to the center dot and then out separating his legs to the outer dots, much like you would see in hop scotch. Next proceed round the dots one at any given time jumping with one leg only, and then change to one other leg. Then continue across the dots with both legs together. The final phase is truly time for the initial starting phase of jumping together and apart, however this time around the athlete will change directions after they've jumped to the outer dots. Players should increase their speed and accuracy to work with this specific drill.
Catching the football properly and effectively is fundamental to a powerful offense. You will find three steps of a great catch: First, place your hands in front of you together with your palms open and thumbs out forming an open triangle for the football. Second, follow the ball along with your eyes from the very first time you view it in the air until it is securely put into a restricted hold. Third, roll the ball into a protected ball position before you take your eyes off the ball. Many receivers can enter a negative habit of looking far from the ball before it's stored away properly. This increases fumbles and turnovers. To avoid this, have two receivers throw to each other and as they catch it ask them to decrease the motion in order that they pause at each catch, follow through and tuck.
Handoff skills can secure yardage on the field and increase your current success. The hand off usually takes place in lots of ways, but most if not absolutely all handoffs occur involving the quarterback and the running back. A good hand off starts with the running back giving a target to the quarterback, this can be achieved in the running back keeping his arms flat against his body, one arm low and one other high creating an open square or target around the chest for the quarterback to slide the ball in. When the running back receives the football he clamps down both arms hard on the football to safeguard it. Given that the running back gets the ball when he leaves the quarterback he should remain low to the bottom in order to react quickly on the field.
