A simple drill we used to do as 16 year old yahoos.

Lie on your back in full pads.

When the whistle blows, jump up and sprint ~30 yards.


One thing that many coaches have found is that if you are concerned with getting up quickly to sprint a short distance, your body ususally finds good form to sprint with. This is a point Charlie Francis has made as well.
