Football Drill Demonstration

Set a lane 5 yrds in from the sideline on each side of the field spanning to 1/2 distance to goal

The Coach begins play by passing a ball to the Attacking Outside Forward to advance the ball down the field

The Center Forward advances and calls for a "Cross" from the outside play The Outside player may cross the ball at any moment after the call for a "Cross" from team mate.
