4-Time State Champion and past college coach Jason McManus shows how he teaches his receivers to play fast all the time, expecially during practice.
All high school coaches are challenged for time and Coach McManus starts off talking about which drill is done each day during Individual Periods
Using practice film, Coach McManus shows where every body part is supposed to be during STANCE and RELEASES. He goes into great detail about footwork.
The STEM-RELEASE drill shows step by step, using practice video being freeze framed, what the FIRST THREE STEPS are for every route in the MACATTACK system
BALL CATCHING drills include: Low Ball, Hi Ball, Sideways Catch, and Toe Tap.
Wide Receivers have a stereotype for not BLOCKING. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN if you are going to successfully run perimeter screens (quicks, nows, bubbles). Coach McManus’ receivers are INCREDIBLE BLOCKERS and you will understand why after seeing how he teaches blocking.
Coach wraps it up with precise FOOTWORK on 90 and 45-degree cuts.
