The good ole speed ladder. Many people hate it and many people love it. When I first started coaching, back in 2002, I thought this was such a cool tool to utilize for “foot speed”. While with the Carolina Panthers, I watched Ricky Manning Jr constantly work on his “foot speed” via frapiers dot drills, cone drills, and the speed ladder. College and NFL athletes are using them, so of course this stuff works, right?!
