SPREAD N SHRED No Huddle, Fast Tempo Offense: Year Round QB Developmentby Jeff Steinberg
TRYING TO RUN THE SPREAD OFFENSE BUT QB ONLY PRACTICES SAME TIMES THAT THE TEAM DOES?
STEINBERG BELIEVES THAT HE CAN TAKE A 4.0 GPA DECENT ATHLETE FRESHMAN YEAR AND DEVELOP HIM INTO A WINNING QB
Coach Steinberg has tutored 8 Quarterbacks who have gone on to play College Football. 3 of those QB's at the D1 Level including Blake Barnett, #1 QB in class of 2015.
Steinberg goes through how he selects the QB and explains that it is the only position that kids cannot "try-out" for. QB have to be invited by Steinberg, including the freshman and JV levels. You will be shocked to see what Steinberg looks for. He has his list: "10 Points of Consideration to Be a Great QB", and most of these 10 things he teaches them in his year-round QB school.
Steinberg goes month-by-month through his Yearly Plan to train the QB. When they are in the classroom, what he gives them for homework, and when he has them on the field.
--> How to attack the Defense. Know Defenses’ strengths & weaknesses
--> It is so much more than just knowing the Down & Distance
--> Talks about Quick feet, speed & quickness, and strength on the board, then takes you to the field to show you the drills to teach all 3 areas.
--> Ex-QB Steinberg goes through the mechanics of throwing the ball, then takes you to the field to show you the drills
--> Ball Security is huge. (QB/Center Exchange, holding ball in pocket, clean hand-offs)
Steinberg has powerpoints and game film to show you how he takes his QB in the classroom all spring to teach them how to UNDERSTANDING COVERAGES, IDENTIFY THE FRONT, FIND THE DANGER GUY, and FIND THE READ GUY. This is part of his QB School.
