Coach White shares various drills that can be used daily to build a better running back.
The first section of drills focuses on protecting the football. Coach White stresses the importance of emphasizing the fundamental aspects of ball security.

The circuit features handoff and ball security drills to train hand position as well as techniques for holding the ball properly and securely.
