I thought I'd post this here since there are more trainers/coaches in this forum.
Quick background... I have no organized football background since my high school and college sport was rodeo. My son is 10 years old and wants to play football next year. His basketball coach is also going to be his football coach and really wants him to play since he is a big kid, listens well, and can follow plays well. His coach said that since my boy is 103+ lbs, he'll have to try out for a spot since they can only carry 5 kids at that weight. His coach went on to say that my son's biggest hurdle to making the team will be his footwork and that he really needs to work on that before the season begins. Read as slow and clumsy.
So my question...My son needs to develop lower body coordination, foot speed, and be able to get into a position of power and maintain it. I'm looking for some drills or exercise he can do to help with these areas.
