Inside The Lines: Gridiron Edition-Wide Receiver

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – Inside the Lines is back, and this time we’re taking you inside the gridiron! For the next several weeks local athletes will be teaching sports anchor, Naomi Grey all the skills and drills it takes to be one of the gridiron’s finest!

This week she checked into Rochester Community Technical College to get some route running in with Yellow Jackets Wide-Out, Calvin Dixon. The freshman wide receiver got her stretched out with a warm up then taught her two essential routes.

Featured Drills 

  • Slant Route- The route pattern in which the receiver goes a short distance down the field and then cuts at a 45 degree angle across the middle of the field. This is a good route against the blitz or when a quick pass is needed.
  • 10 Yard Out Route- The route pattern where the receiver runs straight down the field for 1o yardsand then runs “out”  towards the sideline.

Check out the attached video to see how Naomi did!
