I have been a part of football for over 27 years as a player and coach. I currently coach 5A high school football. My coaching experience includes Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, Special Teams Coordinator and I have coached every position during my career.
I have been involved with several state playoff wins and championships while coaching in Texas and Colorado. I have taught at several quarterback camps and clinics. I have offered one one one personal quarterback and skill training for several years helping many future college players.
Quarterbacks will work on 1, 3, 5 step drops, proper throwing mechanics, pocket mobility, proper throwing on the run, and proper footwork. As the student progresses new objectives will be stressed such as reading defenses, play action passes, and drills specific to the student's offense. Players will also receive character and leadership skills during sessions.
With hard work and dedication I was blessed as an athlete. I played with some great teams and was coached by some great coaches and men. At Friendswood High School I was was voted Unanimous 1st Team All District and Galveston County 1st team offense twice. I lead the district in receptions and receiving yards twice as well. In addition, my senior year I lead the district in receptions, yards, and receiving TDs. I also led the Greater Houston Area in all three categories and was top 3 in the State. This led me to be named 1st team All Greater Houston Offense (all classes) and All State 2nd team.
I accepted a scholarship to Shippensburg University in PA. I then transferred to Texas State and graduated with a Health and Fitness Management Degree. When I was 27 I decided to tryout for the AFL Texas Copperheads. Again I was blessed to make the cut out of 300 players. During this time I realized that my passion and calling was coaching and teaching athletes.
Fundamentals - ball placement, foot placement, receiving snaps
Throwing mechanics - footwork, hip, shoulder, elbow placement; follow though
Drops - Drills, 1 step, 3 step, 5 step, rollout, play action
Pocket Drill - escapes, mobility, target recognition
The quarterback position is one that is learned at an individualized pace. If a player is not ready to progress to step 2 we will stay on step 1. As with every sport and position, repetitions are the key factor.
My first session is an assessment to gauge where the player currently is skill wise, where he wants to be, and the best way to reach their goal.
