More About Coach Paul

I have coached in NFL, College, and High school football camps across the New York area. I have extensive experience as a college football player, high school football coach, and youth football coordinator for ages five to thirteen.

Throughout my college career I have been mentored by some of the most successful coaches in the country. As a true student of the game and current high school coach I use the football knowledge and skills that I have learned from each of the below coaches. Some of the coaching masterminds include... Chuck Amato, defensive coordinator for the national champion Florida State Seminoles 93' & 99'. Chuck Amato also was the defensive coordinator and coach of Hall of Fame player Deion Sanders, who is one of the greatest cornerbacks of all time. Marty Galbraith of the Tennessee Titans, Norm Chow current head coach of Hawaii, Buddy Green of Navy, Doc Holiday current head coach of Marshall University, Manny Diaz of the University of Miami, Chris Demarest of Hawaii, Joe Taylor former head coach of Florida A&M, Dealton Cotton former coach of Old Dominion, Don Rose former head coach of Hampton University. Norm Chow is regarded as one the best Quarterback Coaches in the history of college football. During his time as an assistant football coach, Chow has helped coach 8 of the top 14 career passing-efficiency leaders and 13 quarterbacks who rank among the top 30 in NCAA history for single-season passing yardage. The list of players he coached includes Jim McMahon, Steve Young, and Phillip Rivers, as well as Heisman Trophy winners Ty Detmer, Carson Palmer, and Matt Leinhart. I am still a student of the game but I have a wealth of knowledge and skills to pass down to all who train under me.

I coach all positions but I primarily specialize in WR, QB, RB, and DB training.

I have over 20 years experience in playing football. I have played Division 1 football and I have two college bowl rings. I have coached at various high school, college, and NFL football camps.

I was high school MVP as quarterback and point guard for the state championship basketball team at Granby High School of Norfolk, VA. I then received scholarship offers to Navy in football and Bluefield College in basketball. I chose to play two seasons at NC state where I received 2 bowl rings and gained valuable experience playing with NFL pro bowlers like Phillip Rivers and Adrian Wilson. I also played 2 seasons at Hampton University with current NFL player Justin Durant and former pro Bowl player Jerome Mathis. I currently coach high school football and train several athletes ages 10-24 during the off season.

Very enthusiastic and approachable. Worked my son through different assessment exercises. My son immediately afterwords asked for additional sessions with Coach Paul.

Great drills and pushed me to get better - highly recommend training w/ him

My grandson Charlie loves football. He plays quarterback on his flag football team and for his birthday I hired coach Paul to give him a workout. From the moment Charlie arrived Coach Paul had him fully engaged. He worked with Charlie on footwork and passing and was truly magnificent. Paul's follow up of pictures and video made it even more exciting. We will be back and I highly recommend Coach Paul.

Coach Paul was amazing. My son smiled the whole time. He said it was one of the hardest workouts he has had and he can’t wait to go again! He was professional, fun and my son improves so much from just one session. We can’t wait to work with him again!

Coach Paul was a great coach! He showed up and got straight to work. He was very patient with my son whose nine, but yet very stern. You can tell that he cares and makes his clients work very hard to their full potential. He even captures highlights from the sessions and sends it to you in a video which I loved. I will be using him again.

Coach Paul was fantastic with my son and his friend! Best training session I have seen thus far! We can't wait for more!

COACH PAUL THANK YOU !

Coach Paul was fantastic. My son Topher plays Basketball in New Zealand for school and when we were planning a trip to USA we wanted to get some training in. Coach Paul had great drills, came well equipped with training equipment and had a structured routine. It was a very productive session, thoroughly enjoyed by Topher. Coach Paul then followed up with a personal video of the drills he had taught Topher and tips for his training that we received that evening. I would definitely recommend Coach Paul and when we are visiting NYC again we will be sure to book another session.

Great session, can’t wait for the next one!

Awesome! Loved working with coach Paul. The drills that we did helped me see what was lacking in my game and what I needed help on. Also, refining my skills that I was more comfortable with and getting better.

One word “Awesome”. He knows what he is doing and look forward to many more sessions. He gives you maximum effort with his huge knowledge of the game. If you are looking for a coach Paul Barber is for you.

Coach Paul is the best! He was very knowledgeable and attentive. We had a very large group that needed lots of guidance and he was able to quickly take command. All the players responded to him immediately and he was able to accommodate his style to different skill levels. He has been responsive throughout, and has been able to answer all our questions. Highly recommend.

Paul was a great coach! Very patient and understanding of my skill level. Taught the fundamentals and it was a great session.

My son recently started training with Coach Paul. We live in Miami but come to NYC for training. Coach Paul is always prompt and organized. He runs a well planned out practice and he has a very nice way with kids. My son really likes training with him and we are seeing big improvements already. We plan to continue.

Coach Paul was amazing. Friendly,firm, and extremely knowledgeable. Teaching techniques are great and really help on improving at my postition. At the same time keeping it light and fun. Looking forward to more sessions.

Coach Paul's expertise and knowledge of the game is unprecedented . He is patient but did not waste a moment of the session . He quickly assessed the players skills and weaknesses and worked on improving them . I look forward to booking more sessions w coach paul . He is also a mensch !! (Hebrew for gentleman ) thank you

We meet coach Paul today for the first time and I have to say it was a great experience. He was very knowledgeable of football training and quickly accessed where my son's strengths and weaknesses were. Coach Paul was very patient during training and is a great positive motivator. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to improve their football skills and love for the game. My son and I are looking forward to our next session and a great season to come!

He's a great trainer. Kids listen and take in what he's says to them. Only issue is he trains at YMCA. There isn't a personal feeling to the session

My children really enjoyed the session.
Coach was energetic, passion and very good with the kids.
We look forward to the next one!

Coach Paul is a great teacher of the game and an efficient coach. He makes sure he teaches you many aspects of the game while implementing certain drills. He comes prepared to teach and does not b.s. 1 thing I like about coach Paul is he's going to make sure you do every drill flawlessly before moving on and even gives you the option to have it recorded.

Coach Paul has been great teaching my son the basics. He just started in a CYO league and has very limited experience playing basketball and Paul has really help him with shooting, defense and basic ball handling. Paul has a really positive approach that has helped my son develop a passion for practice and the game.

I wanted to let you know what an awesome job Coach Paul has been doing coaching my son LaTrelle. He has demonstrated passion for basketball, professionalism when working with parents, good sportsmanship and integrity when coaching the children, He has also demonstrated to me that he is dedicated and committed to the responsibility given to him as a coach. Parents are kept well informed of the progress of their children, and of any schedule changes. We are also able to view videos performances of our children’s progress. My son always looks forward to his weekly sessions and excited about his growth. I have also noticed the maturity and self confidence in my son since his training with coach Pal.
Coach Paul’s professionalism, work ethics, and positive attitude prove that he is definitely an exceptional coach.

Real helpful session. Help me improve a lot on first session. A lot of problems to work on. Coach is real great. Will definitely book more sessions

I see a huge change in my son's game already. Looking forward to seeing what else he can learn fron Coach Paul.

In just one class he was able to identify concrete things my son needs to work on and we love how focused Coach Paul is. Aidan was very focused and paid attention to everything Coach P said. It was a great first class.

Great first experience. My son found it very helpful. Coach Paul knows his stuff.

Coach Paul is a consummate professional that knows the game through and through. He greatly improved my basketball IQ for both one-on-one and team play situations in just one session, and gave me many of the tools needed to continue to become a better player.

Excellent coach- skilled, patient, and knows his stuff

(no details provided)

Coach Paul is awesome! I trained with him, working on basketball skills, and within an hour I'd learned more from his feedback than I had in years of playing casual rec league basketball. One of the qualities I appreciate about Paul is his willingness to work on your level~ As a v. high-level player, he was able to explain concepts that I hadn't been exposed before, such as the geography of the court and body control. Moreover, his feedback was direct and constructive; he corrected things that needed correction, suggested changes that needed suggesting, and was positive about the things I was doing right. Overall, a great session training with Paul. Looking forward to working with him more.

Coach Paul is a very knowledgeable about football and basketball answer or my question with out hesitate Jayden was very excited to meet with him and I will definitely recommend him 150% he's about discipline and getting ur child motivate and not give up he believe the hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀

Coach Paul worked very well with my 10 year old. He showed him great mechanics and encouragement and focused on strengthening weak points in his technique. Thorough and informative. We look forward to more sessions. A boost in confidence was evident on my son's face and in what he said about his workout. That's probably the best result of all. Thanks Coach!

Coach Paul had done a wonderful job with my 7yr old son in his quarterback skills. He is very patient and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him A+ and thumbs up 👍

Coach Paul is fantastic!

On vacation and my 10 year old son was so happy with his lesson with Coach Paul. My son learned a lot and we are booking a second lesson! Coach Paul was courteous and professional.

He could not connect to my son on a emotional level

Coach Paul is very mellow and patient. He is very knowledgable and has a true passion for the game of football. I honestly learned more about the game in the 3 hours I've spent with him than in my whole high school career. Highly recommended!

Coach Paul is very passionate about football. He was energetic and enthusiastic throughout my son's entire session. My son learned a lot even after only one session. He can now go into playoffs with more confidence. We will be booking coach Paul again!

Coach Paul is a great coach. After only two sessions we have worked on many different drills to improve all parts of my game. Not only has coach Paul taught me better technique he has also instructed me on the strategy of the game. Coach Paul cares about making his students better players and has the knowledge to do so.

Coach Paul knows what he's doing. I'm new to football and he's helping me get up to speed as fast as possible. Looking forward to our next session.

Coach Paul gave my son such a boost in ability and confidence!! I would highly reccomend him!!

Working with coach Paul was a great experience. Went over a lot with only an hour but he knows how to teach and helps you understand your position. Definitely looking forward to the next session.

Coach Paul, is intoxicatingly enthusiastic and extremely passionate about football but always gives the greater message of character and sportsmanship. Coach Paul, has helped my son achieve his goals of starting at running back and free safety from being an offensive guard and defensive end on last years youth football team. What also really impressed me was the amount of detailed and valuable written feedback, Coach Paul would provide via email after each sessions. This was beyond my expectations. We hope to continue working with, Coach Paul as my son progresses to High School level.

Coach Paul was great. He is knowledgeable and attentive. I can tell he will help elevate my game to another level. Can't wait for my next session.

Coach P was great. he showed me many new things, i loved it.

Coach Paul is an excellent coach. He was very accommodating with scheduleing the appointment. Once at the lesson, my son learned collegiate level skills in a one-on-one environment. Coach Paul was patient, thorough, knowledgable, and effective. My son spoke about it the whole ride home and continued to pratice what he learned all weekend. We look forward to our next lesson.

I feel that coach Paul was a great coach and help me in the areas I needed the most work in. He even gave me little pointers on things I can do on my own to work on my game. Also he always exampled the drill we were going to do and how it would help me and improve my game. If anyone was going to ask me about joining coach up I would advise them to get coached up my Coach Paul.

Coach Paul is outstanding. He has a vast wealth of knowledge that he is able to impart in a clear and concise way. He makes you work but it is with a purpose and always fun. Most importantly, he is extraordinarily nice and caring, interested in you as a person as well as an athlete.

My husband was a little skeptical when I told him I found our son a private football coach...on line. Upon meeting Coach Paul, we were immediately pleased with his passion and enthusiasm for coaching the game of football. Midway through the session my husband turned to me and said "this is exactly what I was looking for in a coach - technique , footwork and detailed position training, book another session! ".

He's the best one choose him as your coach!

I had an awesome time with coach Paul. I really improved even after only 1 hour. He really wants you to get better and will never give up until you have mastered the skill. I recommend this coach to anyone who is trying to bring their gem to the next level. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

We specifically selected Coach Paul for his expertise with the CB and WR positions for my son who is a high school senior at a top 10 high school football program. Coach Paul is better than advertised. He is a brilliantly effective coach who can identify and correct weaknesses (mental, physical and technical) in a player, improve upon strengths, and ultimately transform your son into the best football player he can be. He is a master coach, without question.

Coach Paul is a great coach. Even though we only had one session due to our being on vacation in New York City, the boys learned so much. They commented that Coach Paul was very knowledgeable and will contunue to practice what they learned. Thanks so much Coach Paul!

Excellent coach and motivator

For over a decade my son's basketball team was an average team at best, struggling with taking their game to the next level. Under Paul's tutelage the team improved beyond anyone’s expectations making it to their first championship game ever. Although we lost the championship to a team who has gone undefeated the past 2 seasons by a mere 3 points that same team in the regular season before Paul was brought on board beat us by 32 points in the season opener. Under Paul’s guidance we not only slashed 29 points from our 1st defeat but were one basket from taking them to OT with seconds to go. I was so impressed with Paul’s knowledge of the game and his sincere passion and desire to guide each member of the team to not only improve their individual game but to play as a unit on both ends of the floor.
If you’re looking for a coach for your child or team I highly recommend retaining Paul it was the smartest thing I did for our team.

I loved working with Coach P. He made sure that everything was the best that it could be done and he did not let sell my self short. Cannot wait to train with him again

Coach Paul was great. My son was so excited about meeting and working with Paul. He was so attentive to my son's needs. My son was extremely greatful He left the session with Paul eager to schedule the next meeting. I find that he is very knowledgeable and very patient. He is looking forward to another session.

Paul arrived early and with a smile. During the duration of the session, he was always positive and nurturing.
My son learned the drills that will be the building blocks to becoming a more comfortable player whether he choices to play competitively or not.
Paul loves his work; and this father and son loved Paul's coaching session.

Always have a really awesome time with Paul. I've already learnt so much from him. He's very knowledgeable and is super patient - Unless I drop the ball (But that's definitely a good thing)

Coach Paul has improved me in so many ways, and it's only been one session! I am much more in depth with my knowledge of the game both mentally and physically. I will continue to go in hopes of starting at the high school level and beyond.

A middle school student athlete trained with me last summer and he was able to start on the National USA football team (picture above). A varsity high school DB/WR that I coached earned all city and all borough honors. A college junior on the track team with no previous experience was able to make his college football team and earn playing time as a cornerback after training with me all summer.
My last football client had never played football before this summer and now he is the starting quarterback for his high school football team.
