Wide Receiver Grab Ball Drill


This drill is designed to help the player become aware of tucking the ball away after catching it and covering it up when contact is nearing.


The players line up parallel, facing each other about two yards apart. A receiver stands at each end and on the command “GO”, the coach tosses the ball to him. The player runs between the two lines covering the ball. Players on both sides try to pull the ball from the ball carrier.

Coaching Points

Emphasize holding on to the ball and use of good body control.
