Throwing Motion Tip: Pushing the Ball Back

Pushing the football back to the ear: QB's must always think "chest-ear-throw" while throwing the football, keeping the elbows relaxed by the side, shoulder width apart, avoiding tension and strain throughout the upper body. Pushing the football back to ear at the start of the motion will allow for the opposite shoulder to face down field in a perpendicular position. This results in better shoulder rotation, generates a more consistent release point and adds more torque to the throw.
