HIGH PERCENTAGE THROWS to the BOUNDARY

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Easy throws for the QB Easier reads for the QB than most vertical throw packages Easy to make routes appear to be same to the defense Base call in the package is good versus all coverages… It is a “call it play” Only need 4 WRs out to execute the route.

Basic QB tip “Don’t throw TO WR… Throw ball away from defenders”

#1 WR (field side) #2 WR (field side) #1 WR (boundary side) #2 WR (boundary side)

3 yards inside of numbers 2 yards inside of hash 4 yards from tackle spot Split the difference between #1 and OT

12 yard HITCH SEAM. Stay Outside of HASH SEAM to 18 yards on the HASH Break to 5 yards to outside of numbers, then vertical to 22 yards

QB: PRESNAP the FREE SAFETY. If middle of the field, then throw to boundary. Not in Middle…throw to field.

STRESSING DEFENSES with the EMPTY SET
1. STACK FORMATION
• • Great NO HUDDLE FORMATION Good IF/THEN answers which means no wasted plays

2. Stressing the defense with 5 immediate receiving threats 3. Stress the defense LATERALLY and forces the DEFENSE to defend the entire field 4. Line up in EMPTY to run the ball 5. Empty formation gets the D line to run laterally without a reward

THOUGHT PROCESS 1. SCREEN
• • • • • • Take advantage of numbers laterally Control blitz Take Advantage of box numbers Pull for displaced backers Try to get a cover 3 look Incorporate your cover 3 beaters from this formation

2. RUN

3. 5 step throws

#1 WR (field side) #2 WR (field side) #3 WR (field side) #1 WR (boundary side)

11 yards from sideline, WR can win in space and hard to tackle Stacked on top. Best blocker. 4 yards from tackle spot 3 yards from NUMBERS

QB Fundamentals and Daily Drills
GOAL is to improve game day performance with daily drill
What we emphasize with our QBs • Do not make major changes in delivery, by the time they get to college this is hard to correct. • Maintain proper grip and index finger placement What you CAN change 1. GRIP: the index finger is the last contact to ball Upper Body 1. Hands are offset on the ball 2. Keep ball as far back as possible 3. Keep the back elbow away from the body. This helps prevent the ball from dropping Lower Body 1. You are 2 inches lower when ball is trigger (bend in the knees) 2. No weight on the front foot *Use Special Teams time for bonus QB indy time *During all drills stress the need to spin the ball to start a drill, not flip. This avoid turnovers and slow timing

QB Daily Drills
1. SPIN BALL DRILL The key is to make sure the QB is not looking at the ball 2. Warmup from 1 knee Emphasize Fast Trigger then Easy Throw 3. Trigger (no steps) Emphasize to only Rotate and Throw 4. Trigger (with crossover and plant steps) Add 2 steps to Trigger drill 5. “HANG then BANG” Lift front foot up then go through throwing motion. This check for weight on back foot and helps eliminate backward motion. 6. Trigger (plus steps #3 and #4) Emphasize driving knee into the ground 7. Pocket Presence QB has a short drops with small bumps or hits a with a bag 8. Movement Wave Drill with QUICKER feet and shorter movement This is more realistic than the LONG WAVE drill 9. Throw on the run: QB runs on a straight line, not boot motion Running to the right: Emphasize right hip through the throw Finish must have belt and hip FLAT to the target Running to the left…Don’t run AWAY from the ball
