  1. Working against a receiver, you’re going to work on the weave in that transition-the three weave position.
  2. We’re going to attack the receiver three times in different directions.
  3. The defensive back will weave three times to maintain his relationship, either inside or outside, wherever he initially started.
  4. His hips have to stay square. His arms are tight. Everything is rotating backwards.
  5. The defensive back is reaching and grabbing grass on an angle, all the while maintaining his square and horizontal relationship.
