Dennis Springer - Northwestern WR Developmentby IHSFCA Illinois High School Football Coaches Association
Developing receivers should be a never-ending job, especially now that coaches often run multiple offenses such as the spread offense, the RPO, Wing-T, and more. Different offensive styles ask wide receivers to carry out different tasks. Depending on how you plan to use wide receivers, you must develop them differently. Different receivers require different training, inside receivers perform slightly differently than wideouts.
There are many areas you can focus on as far as developing them and making them better every day. Starting with their stance, pop off, and route running. Followed by catching drills, their ability to read the defense and block when necessary.
In this course, Coach Dennis Springer discusses the goals that he and his receivers set in place. How to progress and develop with fundamentals and a drill menu that he incorporates into his practices to help improve his wide receivers.
