Default Rebecca Cox

Neat to see the rise of Rebecca Cox, but does anyone else think she is going to have shoulder problems before too long? The strain on her shoulder from her “all arm/no shoulder turn” seems too much to sustain. Amazing power without much body transfer though.

Anyone know if she is working on incorporating shoulder turn into her drives?

Her sequence is pretty good which is the key to her power, but she plants way open and hugs herself, definitely not the most efficient way to throw, but somewhat effective because of the kinetic sequence. The open stance and hugging go together to release straight. I think her shoulder will be ok, but the front leg and spine might be problematic down the road. "Shoulder turn" happens from the hips, since her stance is open her pelvis/torso/shoulders are not turned back. If she planted into closed stance/closed front hip, she would appear to have more "shoulder turn" and she would need to keep her upper arm angle from hugging herself so much.

I just heard of her and saw her play. She's good. Unique form, it looks like she doesn't turn her head at all and keeps it forward through the whole throw. I was thinking neck, but hope not, would like to see her as a competitor.

yah, she just barely turns her head a bit to the left just as she reaches back and pulls through. I think her biggest issue is, she is way too fast in her x-step and that's probably why it doesn't feel natural to turn around slightly earlier and reach back. If she slowed down...way...down...on her first 2 steps, she would probably learn that she "has time" to turn and reach back further. Bottom line..she's young...if she gets some help from someone and corrects her form, she will be bombing...in the future.

Isn't she halfway shifting in front and over the top? It seems like she is landing with feet in line to target rather than offset to be closed, and is pushing her upper body completely through the brace. Her spine gets tilted toward the target and she has to step through kind of rapidly.

But, I'm not entirely sure because if she were planting offset-closed it may end up a bit more in balance with her weight drive more through the brace rather than around to the left side as it does now. Right now she's doing the equivalent of early releasing by like 30 degrees and her arm looks super collapsed because of it. As SW said the reachback and arm collapse go hand in hand with planting too in line/open.

This was the first I've seen of her, she has a ton of athleticism and I'd love to see if she can challenge Paige's distance if she gets her form sorted out a bit. Easier said than done though, I mean that's what we're all trying to do.
