Growing up I was a runt, and relied on proper form and technique to be competitive. When I finally grew I became one of the best defensive players in the region. I had developed, over time, that unique combination of athleticism and excellent fundamentals. It was not easy, and I wanted to quit many times, but I stuck with it and went on to win a number of awards in high school. I know what it is like to sit on the bench, and I know what it takes to get off it and onto the field. After high school I turned down a JC offer to join the Marine Corps. After coming home from deployment I got out, started a family and have been coaching since 2009.

Each sixty-minute session is broken up into two distinct parts. The first half focuses on strength, mobility, speed and agility. The second half focuses on developing position specific fundamentals. Mix in a warm up and a cool down for a complete non-stop sixty-minute workout. Below is a standard class schedule.
• 00-05: Dynamic warm up.
o Five dynamic exercises 30 seconds each then repeat.
• 05-10 Ladder Drills
o Quick feet
o Proper running form
• 10-25: Three five-minute blocks. Each block consists of the following:
o Three minutes of strength and mobility exercise
o Two minutes of cardio
• 25-55: Three ten-minute blocks focusing on a position specific fundamental.
• 55-60: Cool down and stretch.

We have been so impressed with the workouts my son has been doing with Coach Derrek. We came from out of state and didn't want our son getting rusty, so we enrolled in the group lessons he offered. There were options for 5 night each week.
He broke down some missing fundamentals with my son and helps each step of the way. I can't wait for our Texas team to see what our kid comes back with knowing, and see how much he excels after these few weeks.

This was my sons first session with Coach Derek. I can already tell that he is going to be a great coach and trainer for my son. I would highly recommend Coach Derek due to his diligence and compassion for coaching his athletes.

Completed our first session with Coach Derrek. He was prepared, welcoming and motivating. He is a great communicator and passionate about fundamentals and continued work to get better and improve. My son enjoyed Coach Derrek. He said he liked how Coach Derrek payed attention and corrected him when needed so he could improve. Looking forward to more time with him.

Great first session with Coach Derrek, he was patient.. My son enjoyed it and is signed up for extra sessions.

I recruited Coach Child to help coach my sons high school team. He knows football, knows how to teach football, and knows how to win. He respects every player on the team, and knows how to help each of them reach their full potential.
Coach Child is an amazing coach and played a big part in us winning the championship. He was able to bring the best out of each player, and his ability to coach up players and make adjustments in real time each gamein was incredible. We couldn't have won it without him.
Coach Child was a very knowledgeable and passionate line coach for our son. It was our sons first year playing and Coach Child’s passion has stayed with our son for the last 5 years. He is now preparing for his senior year and coach still checks in to see how he is doing. On the field he brought the intensity needed to teach his linemen to be disciplined and to complete their assignments with perfection. He taught all of them to compete at a high level and helped them exceed expectations with a victory in the league championship game. We love Coach Child, great coach and friend!
