To teach defensive extend and recovery by intercepting a pass.
Description of Drill-Execution
Player X1 starts by making a pass to player X2. The defender extends out to play the pass as it arrives at X2. Immediately after X2 rolls away from pressure and quickly passes to X3 the defender recovers to the inside, stick first, looking to intercept/knock down the pass from X3 to X1.
