Option Pitch Technique

We tell our quarterbacks to drive the thumb through the football and aim for the numbers of he back receiving the ball.  We begin by drilling the "hea rt to heart" theme.  We pitch "heart to heart"  to make sure the pitch is up near the numbers of the running back.  We also sometimes utilize the basketball technique if the quarterback struggles with the previous technique.  This technique is flipping the ball by pushing the ball with your near hand towards the back like you are shooting a basketball.  This sometimes is easier for some quarterbacks.  We are interested in execution with a small amount of errors per practice attempts.
