Yeah, I came up with the third lane for the Patriots drill.

Zach then used it for his sprints.

Starting line, three cones eight or so yards apart, football eight yards or so later in the center of the lane. So the course is about 32 yards.

Bear crawl, side roll left, bear crawl, side roll right, bear crawl, forward roll, up and running and then dive on the football.

The rolls are when you get to a cone.

You're done when you secure the football.

We go both directions, so the starting line is the footballs for the other end's finish line.

And no, we don't go "Whose Ball?" with it. Each lane has its own football at the finish.

What is the reason for NOT doing this?  Takes away from the drill?  Seems like something to add to the fun of the drill...

I ran one of Michaels drills last night and a kid got a concussion...first one in 3 years....I run all sorts of Dave Potter's drills and never had this sort of problem.

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

Which one...and howd you run it

Bc usually the application is the problem not the drill.

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

Be careful with over stimulating in a drill

Each drill should have a purpose... i dont think something as physical as whose ball belongs in a drill we are looking at coordination.

Who's ball is a low rep drill and will slow things down. We incorporated into a a few things with a quick whistle but that quick whistle kinda defeats the purpose of who's ball.

That is why you set up multiple Whose Ball drills at once. Every coach on the staff can run a match up.

Yes, we usually have 4-5 fights going on at a time with all of the other kids cheering them on.  I'm sure it looks terrible.

Ran the tennis ball on the cones drill, two offensive linemen vs. 1 defensive lineman and a linebacker.  Kid pushed another kid in a last ditch effort to prevent the tennis ball from becoming captured / stolen / slapped...kid flew, landed on the ground and smashed his head on the ground.  Tough to complain because it was just aggression and hustle that contributed to it.

It is...kids scrambled and put in 100% effort, it was impressive how much they were getting after it...this wouldn't be the drill that would typically have me concerned about concussions...just goes to show that adding tennis balls to a football field is dangerous as hell.
