It’s a normal drill that takes place at the youth, high school and collegiate level, but maybe these tots are a bit too young to fully understand how to perform it correctly or maybe their coaches never actually explained to the kids how the game of football is actually played.
Now, their coaches are being criticized by professional football players over the hit this young baller took.
Retired NFL Quarterback Dan Orlovsky said, “This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen in youth sports. They look to be like 7-8 years old. There’s not need to be doing anything close to this. One if OBVIOUSLY outmatched and that’s on the coach. Whoever put this drill together should face consequences.”
13 year Bengals veteran and 5 time Pro Bowler Willie Anderson said, “I hate these people with all my heart ! The reason why I say ban football til you’re 10 years of age ! Certify coaches ! Let’s implement rules for practices or ban some of these idiots from coaching kids forever!!”
Two-time Super Bowl champion wide received Torrey Smith said, “Attention all parents! If your kid is doing this drill. Take your child off the field and don’t go back to those stupid coaches. Coaches like this aren’t safe and ruin the image off football.”
