    Tennis balls help Tech receivers - Shreveport Times

    A new article has been posted on the Shreveport Times:

    Just because Louisiana Tech fans see tennis balls shooting across their football practice field they shouldn't get the notion their team is taking up a second sport.

    More...

    Discuss the article here.

    Wow. What a simple solution to a problem we've had for years. I'm anxious to see the results on the field.

    Never thought about that. Going to suggest it to some grade school and high school coaches I know.

    I want to try it now. I've caught baseball barehanded moving faster than that and from a closer distance. I think I could do it.

    It greatly improves the hand and eye coordination. I tried tennis ball with my youth basketball team after reading about it. We just used the balls with no machine after a couple practices u could see improvement in the players

    We used tennis balls to improve ball control skills in soccer.

    I was going to point that out. Even though it might have first been reported about Tech using this method a week or so ago, it has been suggested for years that we do this. Maybe even before 2007.

    Mike Leach was a big believer in the tennis balls.

    What kind of machines are these?
