If you've never tried to run with a football under your arms wearing rib pads (like most NFL backs use) you don't know how hard it is to hang onto the ball. The football fits snugly under your arm without pads but when you add the rib pads, it adds about an inch of hard bulk at the point where the ball touches your body. The hardness of the pads make the ball feel slippery under your arm. I can't imagine anyone running without both arms on the ball while wearing rib pads. Maybe a simple equipment adjustment would benefit DD. You never know.
