Long snapper drills!
« on: July 14, 2012, 06:16:24 AM »
Does anyone have some drills I can do with my center to help him perfect the long snap. I want him to be able to do it with one hand and about 5-6 yeards. Been working with one kid who said he wants to snap but he's just not picking it up. He usually snaps one good one out of five try's. I would love to be able to use this kid cause we all know it's hard to find a kid that wants to play center ;)
God has already decided the outcome of this season so let's focus on the kids he has put in front of us. You may be the only father figure they may ever know!!! All glory to GOD.

How old is he?   Play catch with him but dont let him move his bicep.  just his forearm.  this will see if he have the strength to do this .. if he can he needs to play catch alot like this .. note his elbow needs to point towards you when he is doing it.

He's 10. I've done the drill where he holds the ball with two hands and throws it with his forearms like you're saying.
