The following notes come from the “Father of the Modern Passing Game,” Sid Gillman. These have meant a lot to me throughout my career and I thought they were worth sharing with the members of the AFCA.
Leading up to summer camp, the quarterback must pass the ball at least 250 times each day. Every pass has a purpose. Just as an archer aims precisely for the bulls-eye and not just the target, each time the quarterback passes the ball, he has a bulls-eye in mind.
Two quarterbacks begin by starting at 10 yards apart and progress (in increments of 5 yards) to 30 yards apart. They throw the ball parallel or straight down a line to enable the coach to see what each ball does in flight.
