The goal of the Quarterback Stance is to be comfortable

Head- the head is straight up.
Eyes- focused straight ahead.
Shoulders- slightly in front of the hips.
Arms- extended forward under the center's backside.
Hand- placed on top of each other with the palms in, throwing hand on top, fingers spread with the middle finger placed on the center's pant seam. Pressing the hands into the center's backside is the signal the quarterback is comfortable and ready for the exchange.
Back- arched.
Waist- slightly bent.
Knees- comfortably flexed to the point that the ball can easily be exchanged with the center. In practice without a center, use a 45 degree bend.
Feet- shoulder width apart, toes pointing straight ahead.
