Description of Drill-Execution

This drill is a 3 man drill that has one player moving continuously around the outside of 2 standing players.  The goal is to have the moving player catch and throw from the “Box” area next to his head as he moves around the stationary players.  In the video you will see how the ball is moved between players and can benefit all 3 players at one time.  Please go to the following link to see the video on Hogan Lax, https://www.hoganlax.com/box-drill-demo.
