Josh:

We arent on the same page here. What I am describing is all pre throw i.e. dropping back, rolling, faking, etc.   Ball to the Pec I dont want them dangling the ball at their waist or with one hand.   ;)

Coach thnks for the tip,s .Who or what would you suggest?
A lot of what's in the video is good, just be careful - if you see the same thing from multiple sources it's probably good info (although there are still a lot of coaches that suggest pushing the ball back to start the throw, so take even that with a grain of salt).  I am a big fan of Slack, but I've picked up things from multiple sources (Bob, Brett & Rob Johnson, probably at least 20 different clinic sessions, Akili Smith, and a bunch of others).  I think the important thing is to understand why a coach is suggesting certain things, and then decide for yourself is you agree with those reasons.  A lot of so-called gurus just say do this/do that, but don't explain why, and in many cases, I doubt they know why, they're just repeating what they've been told.

Many thanks to Josh! 

As it turns out we are talking the same things just different language!  (Cursed Terminology) ;)

I will say that some of the material is beyond what many of us Junior Coaches have time for with regards to teaching and implementing.  However, the basics are a must if you wish to have any success throwing the ball.  I would love to have many students come to a camp for their positions.  Unfortunately, at least in my area, there are few takers.   :(

This is very hard. We had very little time in season to work on mechanics. It is something that has to be done in the off season and then maintained during the season....before practice, after practice ....it is very hard to find the time.

Glad I was able to help a little.

In speaking with our QB coach he would prefer our QB's not play baseball at all. He thinks throwing a lighter object can cause damage to the younger player. He also thinks baseball can have a negative effect on the QB's throwing motion.  Any thoughts on this?
nothing replaces effort. nothing replaces the mind. One with out the other is a waste.

Baseball and football are very different with regards to the techniques used to throw the ball.  I cannot tell you how hard it is to break a Pitchers habit of a big wind up (Dropping the ball low), long stride, and rolling their wrist. 

There are a couple things that coincide Elbow even with or above the shoulder and driving into the throw.

The one drill I saw that I liked was simply making the "L" and finishing the throw.   Gets their elbow leading the ball and teaches proper pronation.
