We were very pleased With the session. Coach Fred made sure that my son started to feel comfortable which has been one of his biggest obstacles. I already saw Improvement and it was just the first day. We look forward to more practice sessions.

Coach Hicks is a true expert at coaching linemen - talks to them as both a coach and a player, and in just the first session he identified opportunities that improved our son’s performance immediately. He also did the most important thing any coach ever has for him - showed confidence in him and gave him back some in himself! We’re so grateful to be working with him.

On time, knowledgeable, explained techniques well. Good coach.
