From Darrell

hi dante i play db in high school and i was wondering if you had any tips on how to play cornerback like stance,inside/outside shade, backpedalind or shuffle techique. do you have drills to improve quickness or a weight lifting program. thanks darrell

I would say it depends on the defense that is called who you are playing and what they like to do. Some teams may run a lot of inside routes so you would want to play more inside shade especially in man to man coverage when you play zone you can change it up a little and play head up to outside shade once again depending on what your opponents tendencies are. As far as enhancing your quickness I would say jump rope, some sprinting up hill and the foot ladder. You might also want to start doing light power cleans and squats to improve your explosiveness. Personally I like using the back pedal especially early on. Learning how to road runner and t step will pay huge dividends especially if its smooth and quick. I like being low with my weight over my toes just makes me more efficient with my technique.
