"What is the best way to hold the ball to throw a spiral?"

It is hard to explain with out being able to show you, but ill give it a shot. Hold the ball in your non throwing hand, with the laces out and the ball pointing away from you. You're ring finger should be on the first lace from your body. The pinky finger should be two laces forward on the ball. The middle finger should be aligned with stripe that goes around the top of ball. Your thumb will be on the lower half of the ball on the same plane as you middle finger. Finally your pointer finger should be stretched as far towards he back of the football, as long as it is comfortable.
