How do you throw a good spiral football?

Throwing a football isn't easy and takes allot of practice on your own or with a friend/coach. How you could throw the football depends on how long time you have been throwing a football. Allot of young quarterbacks throw the ball by sliding their hand under the ball, they do this because their hands are to small to throw the football properly. This method could create a nice spiral, but however it's the wrong way! Why is it wrong? Well if you slide your hand under the ball you will get almost no power at all. So if your hand are really small or you if you haven't thrown a football very long time this is a common way to throw the football.Now how to throw the football properly.At first i would like to say that nobody can tell you exactly how to throw the football properly, we can only give you guidelines.The gripMany coaches tell their QB's to find their grip first, I don't agree with that because I have changed my grip many times, so my tip is, throw throw and throw until you have a grip that feels comfortable (but test new grips to see witch grip that feels the best).Throwing motionTry keeping your wrist straight at all time though the motion. Start the motion by taking a step with your left foot (for a right handed player) against your target and at the same time you should take your throwing arm 90 degrees and back (so your little finger is pointing backwards). As I said before always keep your wrist straight through the motion. While going into the throw keep your arm high, above your shoulder is a good measurement. Finally your follow through, when you are about to release the ball (always above you shoulder with you wrist straight) turn your hand so that you index finger is the last finger to touch the ball. If you have done this correctly, your hand should naturally go down to you left pocket (for a right handed player) and you should result in a perfect spiral.
