The Quarterback
Quarterback is the most mentally challenging position on the football field; it also requires the mostdiversified array of skills when compared to any other position in football. Playing quarterback is easilythe most demanding of all the sports today.There is so much that goes into playing quarterback well that an athlete must do most of the trainingon his own time; studying film, learning from quarterbacks that have already mastered certainmechanics and many, many hours throwing passes on your own. I have never met a successfulquarterback that only worked on football during his team’s organized practice sessions. If as aquarterback you are not willing to spend a lot of quality time learning the position and all its nuances, your success will be streaky at best.The QB needs to be well versed in every aspect of the running game, the screen game, the quick-passinggame, 5 & 7-step passing, and movement passes to mention only a few. Today’s quarterback needsspecial attention if he is ever going to be able to play to his potential. It would be impossible for a highschool coach to teach his quarterback most everything he needs to know and still have time to instructall the other players on the team; there just isn’t enough time. Today, a quarterback needs to have avery good personal quarterback coach to help him attain all the skills necessary to play effectively in acompetitive game. There are some out there, but you have to do research to make sure you are gettingthe best instructor. If you are paying money to be put in a group and compete instead of havingsomeone breakdown your mechanics, you are wasting your time unless you are being seen by people whocan help you earn a scholarship. In order to get better you need someone who can look at yourmechanics and help you correct them. If your throwing motion is hurting you, you need to change it.You will hear some coaches tell you to never mess with your throwing motion, but if you are havingaccuracy and velocity problems what else can you do? It’s takes a great deal of mental and physicalwork to change body mechanics but it can be done and it will pay great dividends down the road. If what you are doing isn’t bringing you the success you know you should be having, CHANGE IT!

There are also many different types of offense; West Coast, Spread, Spread-option, Wing-T, Veer, andShot-gun, just to name a few. A player that has played in a shot-gun type offense many times can’teven take a 5-step drop in a more traditional offense because he has never been taught the mechanicsof dropping back the correct manner. If you have to teach yourself how to drop back smoothly and staybalanced, it could take you until your junior or senior year in college. Here is a little test you can give yourself; have you ever used a 7-step drop in your passing game? If the answer is no you are way behindas far as mechanics are concerned. Watch any NFL or division I football game. You will see everyone(who takes snaps from under center) using the 7-step drop. It’s primarily used for routes that breakdeeper than 12-yards downfield so the QB doesn’t have to sit at 5-steps and wait for his receiver tobreak open. It’s used for timing and you will not get deeper than 8-yards with this drop.This manual can help you a great deal because it will show you much of what you need to know – therest can be filled in as you progress in your football career. However, the manual has got everythingfrom mentally preparation, to mechanics, to reading and understanding defenses. It also hasinformation on how quarterbacks are recruited. This is a list of some areas we will cover in this manual:
