Flashes: OU WR Kenny Stills

Though there are exceptions--like protecting yourself across the middle--you generally can't go wrong with thumbs in above the waist and pinkies in below. Would have helped Stills here.

Is there any reason these articles can't be commentary on the video? Because the quality of the screen captures is horrible.

I'd think they'd get a lot more views on YouTube, too. And other than the couple actually showing hand position, the rest of the screen shots serve no purpose. A view of the whole field showing where the pattern will be?
