Rules:  Align in a parallel stance and we will use a step Back & Jab with our inside foot & inside hand. Eyes start at belt buckle!
         -eyes move to stay locked on man’s
inside hip with inside arm at inside hip or “In Phase”,  in short and intermediate zones (0-12 yd’s),
         – eyes will climb in
deep zone (12+ yd’s) to inside shoulder pad tip staying “In Phase!”
         – lock on eyes until he has confirmed with his eyes and
hands that he is about to catch the ball then try to rip ball from WR’s hands.

to pick his pocket – then wedge man toward sideline.
