I understand this post is old but for others looking it for reference, i see a few things wrong with technique...

Your getting way to vertical when you throw.  Think of a sprinter...They dont stand up to run...They start out low and streamed line... When you launch....you should be doing the same...

Also your sitting flat, catching the ball (getting that pop) and then starting your feet movement.  You should be already moving as the ball pop's the glove. I call it "cheating".  I will tell my son to cheat it and he knows what I mean.  Also I see guys when they throw down all the way back behind the plate...I personally like to have my son sneak forward a little more than he would if he were catching.  Make sure you come THROUGH home plate...Follow the throw almost like a pitcher...

 

I couldnt see your arm mechanics as it was too far away.   Clean up your mechanics and drive your body when you throw, you will see lots of improvement..

 

 

Thanks for the reply. I completely forgot about this post. I have improved and my arm strength has gotten better as I had been hitting the weight room for the past couple months. High school senior season starting Monday and I am excited. I also have committed to a D1 JuCo as of December, I signed my LoI. I will try to get newer video up sometime.
