Today's successful high-powered spread offenses that use deadly modern passing concepts all have one essential element in common: the precision quarterback. Talent may be God-given, but precision and execution require practice and proper coaching.
Providing in-depth instruction to the viewer, Patrick Donley shows the key elements of Saint Francis' quarterback development regimen, including the needed mental attributes, reading defensive "tells," and fundamental drills that develop a quarterback's key skills for game day.
Identifying Defensive Coverages
Unlike other videos that are full of whiteboard X's and O's regarding theoretical match-ups, Donley takes you through multiple game scenarios from past seasons using film footage to demonstrate the critical skills a precision quarterback requires to put-up huge point margins on the scoreboard.
Discover the necessary defensive "tells" that allow your quarterback to exploit pass defenses. Coach Donley teaches you three essential "pre-snap" reads, versus various coverages, that are a must before every play. He examines defensive coverages and typical formation adjustments in those particular coverages, including:
- Cover 2 (identifying flat defenders)
- Cover 3
- Cover 4
- Cover 6
The next focus is on identifying defensive pressure looks. This helps build quarterback progressions and hot reads based on the play call.
Developing Quarterback Fundamentals
In addition to game footage, you'll also get in-depth demonstrations of the essential "every-day drills" Saint Francis' quarterbacks use to strengthen their muscle memory and keep their passing game deadly. Drills include:
- Grip and Ball Drills
- Upper Body Mechanics
- Footwork Drills
- Figure 8 Drill
This video will give the aspiring spread offense coach a huge leg up on the competition by providing them with key information to teach championship-level quarterback skills to their field generals on game day.
