FOOTBALL COURSE FOR RUNNING BACKS
As presented by Billy Taylor (the BT Express), former running back for the New York Giants
B.T. will be teaching all of the critical components of playing running back including but not limited to:
1. Taking the handoff
3. Finding the hole
4. Deceptive moves with and without the ball
5. Pass catching
6. Where to look and not to look!
The five speeds of playing Running Back
1) Always secure the football before anything. Do not look at the Quarter Back; his job is to get you the ball
2) Throttle back a little to get in line to allow the Offensive Line to execute their blocks
3) Accelerate just a little to hit the hole as it opens
4) Turn on your jets to reach 3/4 speed run to daylight
5) Once through the hole get to your top speed as quickly as possible to score a touchdown!!!
As my father has told me; Act like you do this all the time!
