More About Coach Dave

I have been a high school football coach for the past 10 years. I first started as a freshmen high school assistant coach for 2 years at Winters Mill High School (Carroll County) then moved to Poolesville High School (Montgomery County) where I worked my way up starting as an assistant coach to JV head coach to varsity offensive coordinator. I then spent the last 4 years as a head varsity football coach at Poolesville High School. I have also coordinated with the youth football programs in the area and ran a variety of clinics, camps, and practices for all ages and skill levels. In addition, I serve as a strength and conditioning coach and personal trainer for all types and levels of athletes (male and female). I am a Level 1 Certified Crossfit Trainer, USA Football certified Heads Up Coach, Level 2 Certified Interscholastic Coach, and a highly qualified special education teacher with teacher certifications in Social Studies (K-12), Science (6-12), PE (K-12), and Reading (K-12).

I grew up and played football, basketball, and track at Northern Valley Regional High School in Demarest, NJ. After finishing high school, I went on to McDaniel College where I majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Spanish.

In a typical session, I always have a plan with specific objectives and outcomes. I focus on the needs of the client, but my main focus is for the client to have fun, remain injury free, and perfect the fundamentals. After meeting to discuss the goals of the sessions, we would perform a functional warm-up and then work on drills that help build mastery towards the objective that the client would like to meet. I try to plan drills that build on each other and easily translate to the playing field. In addition, I like to talk with my clients on things such as character building, sportsmanship, teamwork, effort, and more.

Client Reviews

Coach Murray puts everything into training. He's encouraging and truly cares. Even showed up to our son's game to see new areas for growth. Highly recommend!

My 10-year-old son is playing youth tackle football for the 1st time this season, so I wanted to find a coach to work with him on a one on one basis this summer. I was looking for someone with extensive knowledge of the most updated running (speed), tackling, and blocking techniques, as well as position specific skills. After being referred by several football parents I know and trust, I was fortunate to find Coach Dave Murray. My son, being very quiet and shy connected with Dave immediately. He also had a great deal of fun as he improved his skill set. As a parent, it was very rewarding watching my son progress during each session. Dave’s tutelage has not only improved my son’s skill set, it has also improved his confidence and self esteem. Dave has played football at a collegiate level and has been a successful head coach of a high school football program in Montgomery County for several years. I was impressed to find out that Dave has continuously educated himself by attending many of the latest seminars and top coaching clinics in the area. Not only does he have the experience, he also has that unique ability to convey his knowledge to children of all ages. His patience, positive attitude, and enthusiastic demeanor transfers directly to the kids under his guidance and provides the most conducive learning environment possible. I would highly recommend him not only the beginner youth athletes but also the more advanced high school and college level athletes.
Working out with Dave for the past 2 summers has made a huge impact on my strength and speed. As a college athlete, progressing in these areas is crucial to my performance. He helps focus on my weaknesses to turn them into strengths and always pushing me to do my best. He's very flexible with his schedule and I would highly recommend him!
