Gil has been wonderful so far. He works hard to improve my son's skills. He plans the sessions to the specific needs of my son. Gil also cares about the whole person not just the athlete part.

Gill was early and had numerous workout stations set up prior to our start time. His variety of footwork and agility drills was very impressive. Gill continues to email us with suggested workouts and additional drills to improve my sons strength and agility. My son enjoyed Gills positive attitude and method of coaching. I would highly recommend Gill and look forward to our upcoming sessions.

Coach Gill has tremendously helped my game at quarterback. With experience playing the position, as well as coaching it, it is obvious he knows the position, and how to play it well.
