AbstractA football centering device. A cradle for a football is mounted at the end of a spring-loaded, pivotally mounted arm member that pivots in a vertical plane and which is mounted on an upstanding post. A latch holds the cradle in a cocked position near ground level until the player releases the latch with his foot. When the latch is released, the spring unloads and the arm swings upwardly in a vertical plane. The cradle at the end of the arm delivers the ball to the player in a manner that closely simulates the delivery of a human center.
