Coaches,
I am curious when most of you wing-t guys will start having your QB's throw and working their footwork on the offense. When will you start this kind of training?

Right after Christmas vacation. Indoors, outdoors, any time's the right time for QB training. ;)

Where ever we had Hand Ball courts we would take our Q Bs and give them our off season QB routine. We enphasize for a right handed QB that his release and throw was correct if the ball would richohet to the left. We did it against a wall if we did not have indoor courts.We also use a heavy ball about the size of a baseball that we would throw against the wall to develop arm strength. Jeff Simmons who is a sales rep for Gilman Gear and part time coach for Carnegie Mellon has an excellent drill program for QBs and receivers. Stop and see him at Gilman Gear exhibits In Pa and W Va.

our qb's all play 3 sports and we like that. we begin with specific footwork,throwing technique as soon as the spring sports end. it is not unusual to see our qb's throwing with our receivers before or after their in season sports practices. during the summer we have qb school one half hour before team workouts where we work specifically on footwork;wing-t technique;throwing progression.

In years past we've had QB's that are always 3 sport athletes as well. Most years we start doing 6AM workouts with our kids around mid-March; 2x a week for 40-45 minutes (we start school at 7:00AM). Usually it entails about 15-20 minutes of general agility, and then more specific drills...linemen & skills players. This year our returning QB is also a regular starting pitcher on the baseball team. As to not wear out his arm throwing with different mechanics, we are going to eliminate his reps throwing to receivers, work more on run game timing, as well as agility and footwork. QB emphasis will include ball-faking, drops, play-action technique, passing tree and read progressions. Once the summer gets here the passing game truly takes priority and we meet 2x per week for 7on7's and then run a "skills camp" the week before double sessions. Generally we usually have 15-25 kids show up for those morning workouts, and 2-3 QB's.
