Hi, I'm Deejae Johnson, I'm a soccer coach in San Francisco. I've been around the game since I was three years old. I'm a USSFA-licensed soccer coach, as well as NSCAA advanced national coaching badge, and today I'm going to show you some soccer tricks.
As you're juggling on your head or your thighs or even from a foot stall you can pop the ball up and catch the ball in the back of your neck. The key is to watch the ball as it goes above your head and then duck down as the ball is dropping. Getting your head up and your shoulders back you're creating a nice little cup between the shoulders, the head and the back that the ball can stall. The Neck Stall. From there you can either roll it back down your back or flip it up from your neck and continue juggling. The Neck Stall.
