Hi I'm Gary Reasons, former NFL linebacker and this topic is about well quarterbacks, how you can throw the ball farther. Well it all starts with how you grip a football. Most importantly you want to grab a little bit of the laces and depending on the size of your hand be able to take as much of the football as you can. So you get a good firm grip, good placement with your thumb on the back side and then as you step in to the throw you want to take and angle the top of the football a little more at a higher elevated place, plane. So as you throw you are going to deliver it and launch and your launch point is going to be higher. Shorter throws they can be lower but when you are trying to throw the ball far you need to bring it back and launch up higher so key point, grab the football, get a good grip on it, place the thumb and then as you step in to your throw release at a higher trajectory. That is the proper way to throw a deep football.
