Certainly against a press or pressure, and anytime you are not wide open, you should receive a pass by running through the ball. Don’t wait for the ball to come to you. Go and get the ball. Tackle it if neces- sary.
Many passes are intercepted because the receivers wait for the ball. Get in the habit of going to the ball with your body, not just leaning or reaching toward the ball with your arms.
You may never get much credit for preventing an interception by running through the ball, but you will help your team win games.
