How Does a High Pass Work?
Just after you hit the receiver icon, hold LB/L1 for a high pass.
The High Pass allows your receiver to make a leaping catch and get the ball away from opponents. These are especially useful if you have a receiver with considerable height (like the NFL’s taller tight ends) or who is extremely agile.
How Does a Low Pass Work?
Hold L2 or LT + Receiver Icon.
Your receiver will be able to catch the ball lower to the ground and away from defenders with the Low Pass.
