Definitely practice a quick peek over your shoulder before you receive the ball. It does wonders.
Also, your teammates should be telling you, so if they’re not then they need to fix that. The only other tip I really have is to do your best to shield the ball and not get knocked off. Good luck!
I’d really appreciate it if you guys could answer this! I need a brace by Monday for a combine and I don’t really know what brand is best. There’s no time to order one online and guarantee it by then so if you know any from Dick’s or other stores that would be great!
Thank you so much!
I’m guessing that since you have a problem with this that you already know how important it is to keep your eyes up when you play. Playing with your head down makes it impossible to scan for options and possible threats on the field.
The only thing you can really do, in my opinion, is practice. Start small so you don’t trip over the ball. Glance at your feet every now and then. Scan your surrounding, glance at your feet, then you’re scanning again as you run with it.
Maybe you could start easy and just dribble alone around the field with your eyes up? No cones or obstacles at first, just get used to it with an empty field.
Shoutout to all the players here with me at the GSA Adidas Showcase!

Help a fellow futboller out?
You can be great if you have the drive. I’d say always stay realistic because although anything can happen you also have to remember that there’s a slim chance that anything mind boggling will happen. You can be good, awesome even, but only with consistent hard work.
Advice? Don’t stop running during conditioning or give up half way through a drill. That’s a good way to get yourself skinned by a veteran player.
Soccer girls, you can relate to this next one!
