Football Defensive Plays . Our football defensive plays are designed to dominate an offense, with heavy pressure and coverage defensive schemes. After starting for 13 years against the best dynasties of all times (Washington 87', San Francisco 89', Dallas and Buffalo of the 90's, of all-times (Mo…ntana/Rice, Elway/Smith, Favre/Freeman, Kelly/Reed and Aikman/Irvin), Tyrone Braxton knows what it takes to STOP and beat an opposing offense. .. Our plays are color-coded, easy to follow and highlight the key points of attack. We also have tips for defensive backs, EG:.. Stay loose and relaxed. Your arms should be dangling . Stay low and balanced ; keep your center of gravity directly above your toes. . Practice back pedaling (drills) . Keep good footing and make crisp, clean breaks when QB releases the ball. . Be honest and don't guess - there is a big difference between guessing and anticipating. Sometimes over pursuit can be worse than under pursuit. . Corner back is a busy position. Stay with the receiver and don't look back at what the quarterback is doing while in coverage. You don't have time and you will lose your footing, balance and focus.. http://www.tyronebraxton.com/football_defensive_plays.html (MORE)

Well, I think you mean what is the three point line... well the three point line in basketball is a designated arc line radiating from the basket. If a player shoots beyond the three point line, it counts as three points while if you shoot inside the three point line, it only counts as two points.

3 points.. the only exception to this is if you are fouled while shooting a 3-point shot (and make it). Then you will get an opportunity to shoot one free throw (worth 1 more point). so in this situation you can score 4 points - but technically this is two shots, not a single shot.
