Agility Training for American Football
Agility and change of direction training is an under-studied topic in American football. A considerable amount of research has been performed with athletes competing in other contact sports. As such, evaluating methods that have shown to improve agility in other sports may lead to new methods to enhance football performance. A framework of the methods used by a highly successful NCAA Division-1 football championship subdivision team is included as a model that may show promise in enhancing football performance.
