with Dan Mortier, New Trier HS (IL) Head Football Coach.
Coach Mortier feels it is wise to spend time with your quarterback - he is the extension of the coach on the field. He discusses the importance of teaching your players what to look for when watching game films and the importance of coordination between the coach and the QB in practice planning and game plan implementation Game time operation includes quiet time in the locker room to focus on the play script, fundamental warm-up drills and managing half time. Mortier details the quarterback's daily practice routine and explains the passing tree. Many QB drills - including the knee drill, feel parallel drills, the shuffle drill, 3-5-7 step drops, play action drop, boot/waggle drop and several agility drills - are illustrated. Teaching the center/quarterback exchange is a key fundamental to successful offensive play. The footwork and specifics of this exchange are carefully demonstrated. The drop back technique, sprint out technique, the circle drill and 10 group drills round out this excellent presentation.
