damn.. my post didnt go through.. >.< so i'll just try to sum up what i said:

* beginning is too slow, and not really enough motion to him. exaggerate!
* if you were going for a jump, then throw... he seems to leave the ground before the foot has time to push off, so move some keys if you wanna keep that.
* ^ actually, when throwing a ball in real life, your body weight put into the force of your arm throwing a ball is what pulls you forward, often looking like a jump. so lead with the arm, then pull the body. really depends on what kinda look you're going for; cartoony or semi-realistic.
* ending needs follow-through like another step to settle such a big jump.

anyway, good start, hope this helped! cheers!
