More About Coach Justin

I’m Coach Mac, a veteran high school English teacher and football coach. Since 1995 I’ve coached youth sports, jr. high, high school, and college football. In the last decade, I’ve coached and coordinated some of the state’s best players and best squads, but also got to impact hundreds more other young men who didn’t go on to play college ball.

My high school quarterbacks have lit up scoreboards and sports pages in Arizona’s highest and most unforgiving regions with quarterbacks from Div. I FCS , Div. II, and Div. III, and ALL are receiving or have received a top-rate education in some of our nation’s absolute best schools.

I work with the QBs looking to take their team’s starting job, or wanting to decrease interceptions, increase completion percentage, move the chains, score points, and win games. Bottom line is that I work with any young man that wants to work.

And I hang my hat on my ability to coach and teach. What I know and what I can do or have done is irrelevant. My gift is getting that knowledge and those skills to an 8-year-old or an 18-year-old in a consistent language he understands, can immediately apply, and can take with him to correct himself on his own.

If you’re a parent of a young quarterback, I assure you that your son will learn more in the first ten minutes with me than he’s ever been taught before, and when all that teaching is flying around, you can’t help but get some on you too if you sit in on the session. If you like the results, pass me on.

If you’re a player, and no matter where you’re currently at as a QB, you have a desire to be better, to play faster, to know more, and to be the authority in your field, then let’s go and start training this week!

Client Reviews

My son Jack has worked with several QB coaches over the past couple years. All with NFL experience. This spring we went with Coach Mac and without hesitation I will state Coach Mac did more for my son in the 6 or 7 spring session we did with him than all the other QB coaches combined. The attention to footwork and mechanics and the ability to communicate this all to my son who is just 9 years old was impressive. If you want your child to succeed in any sport he must have the proper instruction, and if your child wants to be an elite QB, then Coach Mac is your guy. Just don't take up my time slot with Coach!
Coach Mac understands football better than almost anyone I know. As a student of Coach Mac, I found that I continually learned more each week as he was able to break down every aspect of the game for me. He was not only dedicated to our team's success but to the individual success of each of us in life as men and productive members of the community. I am proud to have been coached by Coach Mac and continue to look to him for support and guidance throughout my football career.
Coach Mac was only my coach for one year, but for that one year I learned more about not only the physical part of being a quarterback, but the mental game as well. He is a perfectionist in everything he does and that is what makes him so great. He taught me many things that I will carry through Division 1 football. I highly recommend his skills as a coach to a student of the game at any age level that wants to learn and have fun while doing it. Thank you so much Coach Mac for all you have done for me.
