high energy, high drive and high endurance are not always a package deal. my SL male is very high energy (active, playful, animated, runs for no reason) but fairly low drive (attention span is zip... fetch and tug are rare and short lived). my WL male has moderate energy level (rises to the occasion when asked but has a super chill button) but tons of drive (intense, determined, will tug and chase til the cows come home) both have good endurance (multi mile / multi hour hikes).
in your case, if trying to build drive, I'd ditch the ball and get him a flirt pole.
