More About Coach Heath

My coaching resume includes 6+ years of teaching private QB/WR lessons throughout northeast Tennessee, southwest Virginia, central Kentucky, & Los Angeles. I was lucky enough to train for 4 years with QB guru Darin Slack (founder of the Quarterback Academy) & former Wisconsin QB Curt Phillips, as well as being selected for a private training session with Peyton Manning my sophomore year of college. I have experience coaching players of all levels, from beginners all the way up to future Division I, II, & III players. Typically work with ages 8-18.

I was a 3 sport athlete at Sullivan South HS in Kingsport, TN. While more naturally gifted at baseball, my passion was always to be a college quarterback. Undersized for the bigger FBS programs, I decided to enroll at Division III Centre College (Kentucky) over a number of FCS & Ivy League schools including Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, Furman, ETSU, etc. At Centre, I was a 4-year starter & rewrote the record books, setting new marks in a number of career & single season categories. My senior year I led our team to a Conference Championship & its first 10-0 season since the 1920s. Other career highlights include:
- Broke every career passing record (Career Passing Yards, Career Passing TD's, Career Total Yards, Career Wins, Etc.)
- 4 year starter; All-Conference selection all 4 years
- 2-time selection to the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Commonwealth Team
- 2014 USA College Football All-American

- Sessions will be uniquely tailored to each individual athlete depending on skill level, goals, length/number of sessions, etc. For individual QB sessions, I will customize a plan consisting of drills to help improve the athlete's overall skillset as a QB, including basic ball handling skills (taking snaps, handoffs, play-action, etc.), footwork drills (under center, shotgun, 3-5-7 step drops, rollouts, etc.) as well as proper throwing mechanics.

- Can also offer a more intensive lesson structure focused on proper throwing mechanics*, with drills & theory taken from my time with QB guru Darin Slack (you WILL learn how to consistently throw a spiral). *Recommended multiple sessions

- Can also offer chalkboard sessions focused on the MENTAL aspect of playing QB at a high level.

- WR sessions will focus on specific drills to improve hands, footwork, route-running, & timing. Receivers will also gain valuable insight from a QB's perspective to help them become a reliable target their QB will TRUST.

-Multiple player sessions will focus on position specific technique & timing taken from any number of drills listed above. LOTS of reps throwing/running live routes!

Client Reviews

Great coach! His energy and passion for football translates very well to my son. My son is very impressed with him. From a parent prospective, I appreciate his professionalism from A-Z. Thank you Coach Heath for sharing your knowledge with my aspiring QB son.

Coach Heath is great! We had 3 sessions with him and see great improvement with our son already. He has learned so much and has been able to transfer those skills to his games.

Coach Heath motivates me to practice everyday. He knows exactly what to change in practice to make me a better player. At the end of every practice I feel like I have taken a leap forward in my progress. Coach Heath checks in on me weekly asking about my progress. You can expect Coach Heath to put 100% of his support behind you.

Coach Heath is everything you want in a coach. He’s knowledgeable, encouraging and patient with my son. After one session, my son is excited to continue training and learn more about football.

Our young adult son is super happy in every way with Heath, who has also responded quickly, thoroughly, politely and intelligently to all our messages.

I signed up my 11 year old son for a session with Coach Heath. My son is a beginner who's never played organized football, and needed work on basics as well as positional fundamentals. Coach Heath was great with him, very friendly, very encouraging, and skilled at getting young athletes to learn - he really helped my son master a few things in a short time. My son really enjoyed the session and we've signed up for more and will stick with it - he's excited to continue. I am sure Coach Heath has the skill set to teach more experienced players, but speaking from the vantage point of a parent of a less-experienced player, he's definitely qualified to teach that group as well. I would definitely recommend him!

After our first session with coach Heath, my son is showing vast improvements in his baseball skills. Booked 5 more sessions with him. Look out major league teams! :-)

My son is heading to college to play QB NCAA Division 3. I wanted a coach that was active and able to run routes once he gave him the instructions.

Coach Heath has the relevant game experience and knowledge of performing at this level. He is giving my son the edge he needed before August camp begins. I would highly recommend Keith if your need a QB Coach!! He’s legit.

Coach Heath worked well with my son who showed noticeable improvement in his throws and footwork after first session.

We just started with Coach Heath and could not be happier. He is everything we were hoping for and more. He's a really motivating, positive, professional and fun football coach. My son is learning a lot from him. Coach Heath is also a great communicator with the parent. We look forward to many more lessons!!

Knowledgeable, easily connected with my son and you can tell he loves the sport.

Coach Heath was great on our first pitching session. Nathan was able to pick up everything he was told from Coach Heath. Coach Heath is very knowledgeable and has great patience to teach a 10 year old. We will continue to work with Coach Heath. Keep up the good work Coach Heath. We are grateful that you are working with Nathan. If you have a little athlete that just loves to get better and have fun, I have no doubt Coach Heath will help develop your little athlete. Thank you Coach.

My son responded very well to Coach Heath's positive coaching style.

Coach Heath is a fantastic coach!
He is a highly skilled baseball coach and player. He has patience for days and is always encouraging and kind.
My son showed improvement after 1 session and just loves training with coach Heath - We absolutely recommend him with a 5 star rating!

Great coach! Really helpful with fundamentals for my 7 yr old son. Good positive attitude and great focus on specific techniques to improve baseball skills.

Coach Haden knows his stuff. He is extremely observant and focused on my technique and improved it greatly!

My son Eli has taken several individual lessons from Coach Haden. Since that time, Eli has really grown as a football player and most importantly, a person. Heath really stressed the importance of having excellent fundamentals, techniques, and a hard work ethic. Heath also stressed the importance of being a great student-athlete and made sure my son knew that he had to excel in the classroom as well as on the field. Since working with Heath, Eli has become a much better football player, student, and person. I would strongly recommend Heath Haden for individual quarterback lessons.
