KEY TAKEAWAYS:

Reggie discusses what the Receiver should do after the ball has snapped and they begin to run the route. Key points of emphasis include:
  • Receivers should not run in a straight line because it makes it too easy for the Defense to predict what route they are running
  • Attaining the proper leverage is crucial for a Receiver
  • The Receiver's first step off the line of scrimmage should be angled in the direction that allows gaining proper leverage-the Receiver should try to get proper leverage as early as possible
  • Receivers should focus on the Defender's shoulders when trying to gain proper leverage
  • On an out breaking route, the Receiver's outside shoulder needs to be further outside than the Defender's outside shoulder
  • On an in breaking route, the Receiver's inside shoulder needs to be further inside than the Defender's inside shoulder
