Ok, I have a question, I recently was at a high end academy and they are suggesting that you don’t turn reach out so far that you turn the upper body when catching the ball so you maintain a square position while running towards the defense. So you still reach for the ball but do not straighten the arms and take it comfortably just outside/in front of the shoulder. Would welcome any thoughts.
