How has Elijah Hood improved as a player?

How a Nerf football helped Lions WR Quinshad Davis develop his hands

James Davis took his young son outside the Berkeley Apartments in Gaffney, South Carolina, and made it clear: You want to learn to catch? OK, I’m going to throw the ball toward your face.
