Sorry I forgot to sign it
It seems to me you are moving slow toward the plate, high leg lift and balance point “pause” before delivery.
You also seem to have a low elbow and your arm slot is almost sidearm.
I am not expert, they will be along shortly to help…….:)
Are you familiar with “pitching backwards” on Dick’s DVDs? The pitcher learns the “flat back” or finish position first so he knows how his body must be positioned at the end. Do this to show him what the end result is after ball release. His arm deceleration isn’t occuring naturally.
First, he needs to work on posture with the end result being in a stable position at landing. Do this by removing all hesitations and slowing movements such as the pause at the top of leg lift. This should add some weight shift that will address the early hip rotation. Knee goes up to waist height, front hip leans in toward the plate and go.
Don’t be so concerned about speed of movement right now. You want a smooth, hesitation free delivery that ends with the flat back position. After posture is fixed, work on speeding things up and fixing the low elbow.
