Lateral Rapid Response Drill


  • In athletic position, fire feet as fast as possible while moving laterally to right
  • Perform for specified distance; repeat to left side

Distance: 15 yards each direction
Coaching Points: Focus eyes straight ahead // Keep feet pointed forward //Maintain natural arm swing, driving arms forward and back at a slower speed than feet
Hester: "The rapid response work activates the central nervous system to get his feet moving fast so he's ready to move at top speed when we go into another movement pattern. Once he moves into the next drill, his feet will move faster because his body is in a ready state to move fast."
