Description of Drill-Execution

Have a feeder about 20 yards away from an offensive player, who is covered by a defensive player.  The offensive player will make a cut to receive the ball from the passer, while under pressure from the defensive player.  After the catch is made, the offensive player pivots away from the ball and passes to a receiver that is away from the ball, who may catch and go to goal for a shot.

Be sure to use various cuts from V Cut, I Cut, Back doors, Change of speed, etc.
