The purpose of this Defensive Back High Point Drill is to work on catching the ball at the highest possible point.
Just like the Down Hill Interception Drill, except that the coach throws the ball in such a way that the Defensive Back has to jump to catch the ball at the highest point.
- Move forward at full speed
- Time your jump
- Be under control
- Catch the football at the highest point
- Score! Run past the coach
