    Correct Answer
    D. Back and even with or above your shoulder.
    Explanation
    When throwing, it is important to position your elbow back and even with or above your shoulder. This is because a higher elbow position allows for better control and accuracy in the throw. It also helps generate more power and speed in the throw by utilizing the larger muscles in the shoulder and upper back. Throwing with the elbow low and close to the body or low and back may restrict the range of motion and limit the power and accuracy of the throw.

    Explanation
    When catching a low pass, it is important to keep the pinkies together with the elbows in and the palms up. This hand position ensures a secure grip on the ball and helps to prevent it from slipping out. By keeping the pinkies together, the hands create a larger surface area to catch the ball, increasing the chances of a successful catch. Additionally, having the elbows in and palms up allows for better control and stability when receiving the low pass.

    When throwing a football, it is important to keep two hands on the ball until you are ready to throw. This is because having both hands on the ball provides better control and stability, allowing for a more accurate and powerful throw. By keeping both hands on the ball, you can also prevent fumbles and ensure that the ball does not get knocked out of your hands by defenders. Therefore, it is recommended to always keep two hands on the ball until you are ready to release it.

By keeping your eyes on the ball, you can also ensure that you have a firm grip and prevent any mishaps. Therefore, the statement that it is important to never watch the ball into your hands is incorrect.
