Private Training - Jivanni Lucci
There may be no more important position on the football field than the quarterback. Though the following set of drills and programs are not terribly extensive or long individually, when coupled together they can vastly improve a quarterbacks technique--especially in the drop back, set-up, and delivery of the ball.
The purpose of Two Knee Drill ( 20 passes) is to warm up the arm and, at the same time, teach concentration on target and ball release. Pair off about ten yards apart directly in line with each another, kneeling on both knees. Receiver will hold both hands up, giving the QB a target to throw to. Dont throw hard and concentrate on target. Put your knee on the throwing side down. Place the ball on the ground, grip it with just the throwing hand, lift it up with one hand, cock it high with two hands, and throw it to partner. Exaggerate your follow through as if to pick up grass. Use the arm only and lead with elbow. Helps to develop stronger arc and wrist snap. Switch the down knee for variation.
Opposite Foot Drill. A basic warm- up to teach how to throw off the wrong foot by simulating the motion of throwing off the wrong foot while scrambling or sprinting out. If youre a right-hander start with your right foot forward in heel to toe relationship. Point the toe in the direction of the throw. To throw with the body you must rotate hips. If thrown with correct motion, you will be forced forward on the ball of your right foot and your weight will follow through.
Coach Jio Lucci
Quarterbacks are team leaders who always skillfully move the team up the field, confidently controls the exchange from center, cleanly offers the ball to the running backs, demonstrates consistent throwing mechanics, sets up to throw with their feet directly under their hips, throws to a spot on the field and not to a receiver, and readily distinguishes between man-to-man and zone defenses.
