Develop superior quickness and agility for running precise routes that will get receivers open and keep defenders on their heels. In this mini e-book, Route Running for Wide Receivers, Coach Jay Norvell provides his favorite quick-game routes (hitch, slant, out), intermediate routes (curl, out, fade), and drop-back routes (dig, comeback, post) for attacking the stingiest defenses. In addition, you'll find 11 drills for honing route running skills and increase receiving yards. Full-color photos and diagrams enhance Norvell's instruction and bring the action to life.
The mini e-book Route Running for Wide Receivers is an abridged version of the comprehensive book Complete Wide Receiver (Human Kinetics, 2013).
Jay Norvell is one of the most influential coaches in college football, having coached NFL and NCAA stars Reggie Wayne, Ryan Broyles, Sage Rosenfels, Roland Williams, Doug Jolley, Juaquin Iglesias, and Manuel Johnson. The current co-offensive coordinator and coach of wide receivers at the University of Oklahoma, he has helped lead the team to bowl appearances in each of his five years on the OU staff, including the 2013 Cotton Bowl. Before coming to OU, he coached at UCLA, Nebraska, Iowa State, Wisconsin, Northern Iowa, and Iowa. He has coached in ten college bowl games and three BCS games, including the national championship in 2008 with the Oklahoma Sooners, and coached eight all-conference players prior to the 2012 season. He also spent six years in the NFL coaching the Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts, where as coach of wide receivers he drafted Reggie Wayne in the first round. As an NFL coach, Norvell coached in six playoff games and coached in Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 with the Oakland Raiders. He also played one season for the Chicago Bears. He has overseen countless record-breaking moments, including the OU 2010 season, which saw two-time All-American Ryan Broyles, the all-time career receptions leader in college football history, set eight major receiving records and Kenny Stills break the school’s receiving records for freshmen.
