Pitch and Weave Drill
The running back and quarterback line up in their normal formation alignment in preparation for a pitch sweep play. Three cones are set up in a zigzag 5 yards away from each other starting on the far end of the line of scrimmage.
The purpose of the Pitch and Weave Drill is to work on the initial phase of a pitch sweep play, and then to have the running back work on changing direction during a full sprint.
The quarterback reverse pivots and pitches the ball to the running back on a trajectory for a sweep.
The running back receives the pitch and runs towards the sideline. Upon arriving to the first cone, the running back quickly changes direction by cutting around the cone, and then traverses around the two additional cones before finally breaking one more time to accelerate upfield.
