3.!” In other words.2. 3. . “Ace”. (More in option mechanics. Notice the “Brown Spot” position will not strain your shoulders. Quarterback’s Responsibility – “be a “Dealer”. From “I”. Left hand provides upward pressure to maintain seal. 5. your eyes will control the length of your step. Both hands on the ball – work from “third hand”. The deeper the hand-off. 5.

Quarterback/Ball Carrier Exchange 1. Option Package – Different type of steps. Thumb pad to thumb pad – fingers are spread to trap ball Receiving Snap Adjust fingers after snap – laces should be delivered across fingers for minimal adjustment. Both hands must follow the center as he charges forward – GIVE with him! Follow “behind” upward.
It must be short enough to allow upper platform to roll up and over the lead foot. Tell your QB that he must work above the belly – (Don’t drop the ball down). (Don’t hitch or drop the ball). 7. Finger tip control – air at palm of hand 3. 4. 5. Thumb and middle finger below extended ring on football. Seat or Press the ball – avoid slamming. Don’t over stride – this reduces power and velocity as well as reducing accuracy. PASSING THE FOOTBALL – “Two Platform System” Fingers spread naturally. Index finger near the point. Accelerate out of hand off – never look at ball carrier unless selling “play action”. II. 8. Releasing the Football 1. 6. Grip 1. 2. 5. C. Position of Ball – Upper Platform 1. 2. A. Palm – Foot – Hips – Shoulders – All face the “point of the reception” as you start to release. 4.6. Loaded or cocked position slightly behind right pec. 3. 6. Over the top – elbow rotates and swings automatically. 4. Elbow always remains below the football during passing motion – promotes quick release. 2. Look and CONCENTRATE on your target. Lower end (bottom) of the football points backward as you separate from left hand. 3. Last two fingers over laces to first joint. Separate from your support hand with slight push – just tell QB to get rid of support hand – he will do it naturally. Don’t over coach. Air in the palm. Be a Boxer! . Elbows relaxed – carry the ball slightly away from your chest – (6 inches) Use drills to strengthen fingers. (very important!)

Release the ball above the shoulder. Free hand should not be held close to chest. 5. 9. Thumb follows through downward as inside of index finger is last to touch the ball. Throw to triangle for receiver in Level I or Level II. Upon reaching the “set” position (steps 1. Slide to visual passing lane – move laterally in pocket with back foot moving first. slightly more weight on back foot to initiate proper delivery step and “punch” of football. full extension of elbow for maximum velocity. Avoid over striding with lead foot – open with short drive step at point of reception. Hitch step if you have time. it’s the ready to throw position and be ready to uncoil – PUNCH! “Be like a boxer!” DEMONSTRATION Knees are not stiff but bent slightly. Developing The Quick Release 1. 2. 11. . but don’t worry about it. Don’t watch flight of ball – focus on target. DEMONSTRATION Drop throwing hand naturally – usually to the just outside of lead leg. 6. DEMONSTRATION Short stroke the football for a quick release. DEMONSTRATION D. Snap your wrist naturally. Use an imaginary line – one foot on one side. (Tough to do – must retrain yourself). 10. E. Don’t lock knees upon release – ball will travel nose down this way. This takes practice. 8.

2.45% under center onto your push off foot. Drop tail to begin movement and momentum for each step. Get hips upfield prior to passing DEMONSTRATION C. Should never be noticeable. etc. Be sure to time up jab step w/breaking point of level I & II routes. Prepare to “punch the football”. Hot read may necessitate quick delivery on time. i. 3. . Prepare to throw at any point (read on the run). 9. Toe in slightly. Get depth. or split back 1st step could be 45º . 5 step drop followed by rollout. Read defensive buzz. Drop Back (You can see 53 1/3 yards this way) 1. 3. 5. square shoulders to the target.III. Look off free safety first. Back foot anchored at 90º angle to point of reception. Puts great pressure on perimeter. Football carried from pec to pec with elbows relaxed and prepared to anchor and coil. 11. Keep head upfield – this is tough – must work on it. don’t bounce or prance – this limits drop. Sprint Out 1. B. At anchor point. TYPES OF DROPS TO DELIVERY POINT A. (Five Step Behind Tackle) Work to 7 yard depth (5 step) with landmark behind PST for sprint-to-anchor technique. “I” – 180º to clear backs – off set. 4. 5. 4. ace.. then off to primary read. Dash Movement 1. Last two steps before anchor – shift weight forward and throttle to anchor. 6. 1-step. Proper balance and timing must be developed. Provides run-pass option. First step depends upon the offensive set you are using. Body lean at approximately 60º tilt during depth steps of drop. Try to feel pressure and anchor at 11 o’clock or 1 o’clock depending on primary side. 7. 2. 10. Look off deep coverage quickly. 7 3.e. step for depth with reach foot at 180º . 2. Don’t allow reach step to cross midline at 12 o’clock. Drop mechanics may remain in tack altered only by angle of drop. 2-step – 3. 8. Use jab step technique or staggered left foot stance option if you get hung up with center. weight distribution 55% . Proper defensive read and delivery on time is key element. (Coach Axmann).
Avoid throwing across your body. Coil and hide technique also used to freeze secondary. pull ball aggressively to backfield hip. Bootleg (mis-direction . Attack perimeter if outside force is logged inside or dropped off. whichever fits your quarterback. The more you freeze the secondary (including LB’ers). 5. Hide the ball until the last possible instant. Roll 1. then quickly to loaded position. D. 2. QB’s eyes should now follow the fake in order to freeze secondary as well as look through fake to secondary.5. Throw directly at him. the better the percentage of completion. 6.

Eyes follow fake quickly then look quickly for pressure from side of waggle/boot. 3. read keys with run-pass option. cover point of ball with index finger for ball security. 2. Attack perimeter. last two steps prior to delivery should be shortened slightly while shoulder in cocked to loaded position. Play Action (big play opportunity) 1. index finger down. Keep head up. Head must sell fake then quickly swivel. When using stretch/boot. Hips turn upfield toward point of reception. 2. Must use swivel-hip technique to non passing hand side. Don’t rush the fake.

Upon snap of ball your eyes immediately lock onto your read key . If read key angles toward you or closes. Follow your coaches read progression scheme. On snap you must quickly give up mid-line alley over ball to your fullback. Step back at a 45° L to “A” gap opposite the direction of play.usually “3” technique or Z I.B. If read key charges straight ahead and does not angle toward you. D. pull the ball and either keep up “B” gap or progress to option read. give the ball to the fullback. ie. C. Extend football to midline alley with both hands E. . You will now be directly facing the “3” technique defender you are reading.
