Default Footwork

I was hoping somebody will have advice on how to get a kid to remember proper footwork all the time. During privates and tough matches he does it pretty good, but during drills and not so tough opponets he just walks on the court and seems surprised when the ball gets back! Footwork has always been somewhat difficult for him, but it is frustrating when he seems just to hang there after he hits the ball, no matter how many times he is reminded. Unless coach is reminding at him all the time, often he will even admit that he never even gave it a thought! Any advice on how to improve this? Often this will cause him to play defensively, he still gets to most balls but imagine how much better he would return with more time to hit if he did proper recovery. Anyway, if anybody has some advice, that would be great.Thanks.
