Here's the situtuation boys:

Currently, I'm in a battle for the starting cb spot on my junior High school football team. I'm in prime position to snatch it, and I'm by far the most athletic of the group trying to win it. I'm 5'6½" and 119 lbs. I run a 5.03 in the 40, and have 7.6% bodyfat. I'm not a terribly good tackler, but I'm very good at sticking to my man in man-to-man covergae. My play reading skills are adequate.

What I was hoping for was some advice on how to catch the coach's eye, and stand out. This is my first year in football, but I'm a quick learner, and I have the history in the family on my side. My dad played AKO fratmen, as a safety, and the football blood runs through the family.

Any advice would help, asides from the work your ass off stuff, as I already know that part ;-) Anything I could do drill-wise at my house? Thanks for the tips guys ;-D

I'd say the most important thing to do is not miss any practices. As simple as it sounds, if you are at practice every day, the coach will appreciate that and play you accordingly (assuming your decent).

Eh.. Didn't know they had tackle football for junior high schools. Mine was only flag football...

Anyhow, like CC said, don't miss any practices. Starting at CB for my high school JV team, I would suggest don't try to be spectacular. Be smart, don't go for the big play unless there's no chance it will come back to bite you. A good corner gets mentioned throughout the game. A great corner won't be thrown at.

Give the school or coach a large sum of money.

Huge amounts of steroids. And coke. Everyone knows the best athletes did steroids and coke. Seriously though, I never played organized ball, so I don't really have any tips, I just wanted to say good luck! ;-D

Hey, here a smart idea. Maybe you should ask your head coach/position coach. He should know more information then us on what you need to improve upon. Just tell him you wish to get better and would like to know some drills you can do on your own.

If your looking to impress him. I say run your mouth like t.o. start little by talking shit to the wr when you line-up on him then proceed to talk shit to the qb on how sorry he is. Afterwords, demand more playing time as your the best player on the team.

As a db you should look into back pedal techniques that involve opening up your hips.

Play hard every play in practice. Win the sprints at the end of practice. Don't get too bummed out if you get beat on a pass. DB's need a short memory.
And do plenty of steroids and coke ... :-b

If you're already playing games or scrimm'ing, always stand close to your coordinator on the sideline. Have a good attitude, and be helpful to your teammates.

I think as a CB you should definitely do some footwork/agility drills outside of practice and also show up to every practice.
