How-to: Throw a football
Want to be part of the action this Thanksgiving? Surprise your friends and family by throwing the pigskin with aplomb. 1. Grip the ball with your throwing hand, fngers spread comfortably with your ring and pinkie fngers over the laces, index fnger over the seam and the thumb underneath. Leave a bit of space between the ball and your hand and hold it lightly with your fngertips. 2. Stand perpendicular to your target and bring your throwing arm straight back so your elbow is above your shoulder pointing toward the target and the end of the ball points toward your own head. 3. Step toward your target, rotate through your hips and extend your arm forward, releasing the ball at head height and snapping your wrist. Follow through so your thumb fnishes pointing down with your palm facing outward. 4. Fist-bump your teammates as your throw becomes a touchdown pass.
