Football Practice: Exploit Midfield with Forward Runs - Technical (1047a)

Football Practice Set Up

This practice is set up in an area 30 Yards long x 20 wide, with at least 2 players positioned on each corner and 2 players in an 8 x 8 square, each facing the opposite direction as shown. One player begins with the ball in a corner and plays directly across to width who then plays into central player.
 
 
These 2 players will then crossover, with the first passer receiving the ball off the setter to play through to the opposite corner. Both players will follow through to the opposite corner. This same pattern will take place on the opposite side once players are comfortable with the pattern.
