I really could use some help. I went out to a field today and started throwing and i was only getting 200-225ft with my back hand. Any thing you can point out and help me with would be great thanks!

You have a good follow through, don't lose that. I think you should read this thread:

You are almost all arm because you almost eliminated your torso from power generation by twisting the hips forward before you pant the final step. Changing that makes so many other changes to your throws (because it's so fundamental) that I see little point in reviewing anything else because they're bound to change too. And probably bring about a new problem set. Because of these reasons I feel that it's best to change this bit and then see if any new problems occur then post a new video.

Try to be moving back with the hips and shoulders when the final step lands.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

to illustrate JR's point;

You've "used up" all your rotational energy and you still have the disc in your hand...
I used to think you should be fully squared up at the hit for some reason, but ~45 degrees from target is more like it.
