More About Coach Mike

Current High School defensive line coach. Have been training athletes since 2009 in speed and agility, strength and conditioning, and sports specific drills.

Won MD state championship in 2003 at Linganore High School in Frederick, MD. First team all state in 2003. I was ranked the 10th best tight end in the country by scout.com coming out of high school. Three star recruit by rivals.com. Was highly recruited by Maryland, Georgia Tech, Ohio State, West Virginia, Boston College, Virginia Tech, Pitt and Penn State along with several other colleges. Ended up attending Penn State on a full scholarship from 2004 to 2008. Played both offensive and defensive line. Was a starter for the 2007 Alamo Bowl against Texas AM. Won the loyalty and commitment award at the 2008 senior banquet. Also played three years of professional football in the Arena Football League.

Athletes should be prepared for an intense workout when trained by me. I like to create game like situations, helping players get ready for what they will see on game day. One example would be getting offensive tackles ready for the types of pass rushers they may see whether its a more physical bull rusher type or a smaller, faster, speed rusher. There will always be a warm up to start that includes stretching and some basic plyos. I also do sports performance training that includes speed and agility work, strength training, and increasing flexibility. I also would like to offer my services helping with recruiting and creating high light films. Having been a big recruit myself and also sitting down with college coaches and breaking down film, I know exactly what they are looking for and what will help get you notices.

Client Reviews

Coach Mike was fantastic with my son Jake. He easily connects with the kids, and can demonstrate exactly what he wants them to do. Jake plays OL and DL for his High School team, but felt his coaches weren't really teaching them much. This was particularly evident against well-coached teams, and going into his Senior Year Jake decided he needed additional training. After the first session with Coach Mike, Jake told me he learned more about correct form and technique in that one session, than he's learned from his High School coaches over the past three seasons. He's very excited about continuing the sessions until summer practice begins, and has spoken with the rest of his OL teammates about having Coach Mike train them as a cohesive unit.

Great experience and hard work with coach Mike

Coach Mike is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful in explaining concepts to my son. With all of his experience, he is very down to earth land adds humor to the sessions. Very highly recommended!!

Mike is a great coach! My son looks forward to his training session every week. Mike is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience with working with younger athletes. He listens to what we have to say and comes up with a training plan to meet our needs. Mike is your coach if you want to take your game to the next level.

Coach Mike has really helped improve our son's playing ability. We have had just three sessions, so far, and the difference is very noticeable, not just by us but also by his coaches. My son looks forward to his sessions and I wholeheartedly recommend Mike and look forward to continuing work with him.

Mike is a great coach, works my hard but if you want to rise above the others you must push yourself beyond. thanks Mike for pushing him

My son plays ol and dl on the high school level, he has attended day camps for linemen which have been helpful. However, if you have been to a camp you know that there are usually a large number of attendees and you get a small amount of one on one coaching. That is why I went with Mike, he gives you that one on one attention which is vital in the development of a player. Since my son plays both ol and dl I found Mike very beneficial since he has the knowledge and experience to teach both. On my son's first session Mike was able to correct his stance and improve his foot and hand work. Mike easily relayed his coaching techniques and his rapport with my son was excellent. My son felt very comfortable and felt the session was very helpful. We look forward to future sessions with Mike as my son continues to develop his skills.

My son just had his first session with Coach Mike. Coach Mike did a fantastic job and I look forward having my son work with him over the summer to prepare for next season. Coach Mike started out going over the fundamentals for my son's positions. It's great to make sure he is starting out with good technique.
