This is a dad helping son question.

my son can usually extend the play. He can move well and is strong enough to pull out of anything not "two" arms. This confidence is great, but there is a time to throw it away and live to fight another day. How do you coach it? What do you coach?

nothing replaces effort. nothing replaces the mind. One with out the other is a waste of time.

So you want to have him practice throwing it away, without getting called for Intentional Grounding?  How old is he?

It depends mostly on your pass blocking and number of receivers.  My general rule of thumb is your pass blocking is only as good as your worst blocker.  Thus, I practice my QB to throw in three seconds.  However, another variable to consider is the number of DB's.  If the defense has six or more on the line, it can't cover the QB.  Since this describes most youth defenses, if my QB saw no one open after 3 seconds he was to take off and run for the sidelines aiming for a 10 yard gain.  Who has him?

So I never had to throw the ball away.

15. The rule here is past the LOS when out side the pocket, but there needs to be a receiver around. Not the NFL standard. We had a situation where they were running a screen left and the RB fell short of the  LOS>

Varsity HS program.

I as always of the understanding  - when the play breaks down - may something happen. They love this side of him.... until he take a sack. So if we are in field goal range 3rd and 10. Rush 4 drop 7.

I was looking for info like  - do you just side arm it or thow it at the feet of your rb or throw it out side by your closest receiver. Arm strength is not the issue. just what do you teach after there is no option to throw or run.

We teach throw or run. We also 3/4 roll for most passes. Basically the timer is by the 6th step balls out or youre running.

If he extends the play with success and you want to teach him if shit breaks down throw it away its as easy as that. Run to safety and over throw the receiver toward the sideline.

I tell my qb to throw at a target on the sideline, coach, cheer leader, spectator so only they can catch it.

Its a slippery slope, i would rather as a coach have him run to the out of bounds rather then throw incomplete out of bounds. 2nd and 9 is better than 2nd and 10.

Theres a great jim harbaugh clinic on you tube teaching basics of the qb pass game find it, watch it, may help.

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

#1 Never set your receiver up for a hit! 
Over a receivers head Out of Bounds is your Friend.  (I mean over the bench).

That being said I see you say you're running the Wing T.  QB in a Wing T is, essentially, another running back.  So we aren't talking about 5 and 7 step drops, where my aforementioned QUES are relevant,  Or Are We? 

I have always taught my QB's they have until the count of 3 or until they reach the OT position to get rid of the ball (see aforementioned) or Eat it!  Eat it meaning, square your shoulders and get upfield!  We are a Pistol depth set so the 3 steps are built in.  Slide protection to passing side.
