QUARTERBACKS…coaching what could the most difficult position,
YET EVERYONE THINKS THEY KNOW HOW TO COACH QUARTERBACKS!
I am fortunate to be a high school coach that only coaches QBs. My QBs only play quarterback…unless we get a truly special player. Only coaching the QBs give them the advantage of working with me 24/7. We take time to work all the intangibles.
As many of you know I am a firm believer in what Darin Slack and Dub Maddox are doing at THE QBA. I have been using their drills and R4 system for the past eight years. As an educator and a coach the language they use to communicate to QBs is ground breaking. Yes, I know there our other productive systems out there but the QBA fits us perfectly.
How do I start with the QBs? First is mental. I am a former lineman so I keep my quarterbacks grounded. If any of them start feeling high and mighty and simply remind them by calling the DONNA (short for PRIMA DONNA) for the rest of the day.
I tell the 3 Bs and the 1,2,3s and one life lesson.
The longer you hold on to the ball the worse you become as a QB…this year I have reinvented this theme to “Hesitation is the WORST enemy of a Quarterback”
Make the proper read
Your cadence, your “huddle*” presence and your leadership
I use a number system to tell the difference between the types of ball to throw.
