This is a 3 question test on WR press releases. We are going to test your knowledge of different releases, the technique behind the and more! I hope you enjoy- answers will be located at the bottom of this article
Q1)- What type of release (doesn’t need to be specific) would you use if you were running an RPO slant? Q2)- Is a “wide step” release with your front foot or back foot? Q3)- True or False- In press your hands should be crossed so you can combat a DB easier
WE ARE TRAVELING TO 15 MORE STATES FOR QB/WR CAMPS! We are coming to San Francisco CA, Orlando FL, The DMV, Charlotte NC, New Orleans LA, Dallas TX, St. Louis MO, Honolulu HI, Boston MA, Cleveland OH, Austin TX, Seattle WA, Newark NJ, Denver CO, & Los Angeles CA….

A1)- You would use a more patient release like a slide release or hesi release. An RPO is a longer developing play rather than a quick game slant where the QB just catches and fires. So you have to time your release up with the play.
A2)- Back foot- you step with your back foot to the outside of the DB (towards the sideline)
A3)- False. Hands should not be crossed- if a DB puts his hands right in your chest you have to open up your hands then try to fight them- which is wasted motion. Have your hands in a relaxed position but DO NOT cross them.
