Football Throwing Machine

Patent number 4596230

Filing date: Nov 5, 1984

Issue date: Jun 24, 1986

This invention projects oblong shaped footballs in ways similar to that of a passer or kicker. That is: spinning on its axis, or flipping end to end through the air. The difference between this and previous inventions, however, is the loading mechanism. Most football throwing machines require a person to manually load and push through each football to be thrown, but this invention has an automated loading system. The invention can hold up to 8 footballs in a rotating turret on top of the machine, and is able to load these into the launching mechanism one at a time.
