More About Coach Petrus

I have over 10 years experience coaching football as a position coach, coordinator and head coach. Most recently I was the Head coach for the National Team of Finland (under 19 year olds). In addition, I have organized QB camps and clinics for many years to QBs and coaches from PeeWee kids to College athletes. The quarterback position is the most difficult position to play in sports and that is why coaching QBs is my passion!

I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and provide specialized strength training for QB's.

I played football semi-professionally for 14 years in Germany, Sweden, Italy and Finland. Retired NFL coach Ken Meyer was my QB coach and offensive coordinator for 5 years on the Finnish National team in the late 1990's. Later I played semi-professionally in Germany for a current college head coach, who ran the spread offense. Therefore, I am very familiar with both pro and spread offenses. I have been part of three European Champion teams(National team competition) and six Finnish Champion teams(club competitions). I was a national and club team captain for 12 of the 14 years as a player. In 2012, I was selected to the Finnish Football Hall of Fame.

Focus will be on building the proper throwing mechanics through upper and lower body fundamentals. In addition, we'll practice the art of quarterbacking by improving footwork (stance, drops, shotgun footwork). During and after the session, I'll give thoughts and coaching points that will help you practice on your own. Compared to QB camps, the level of detail is at much higher level during my sessions as I coach every rep.

In the following sessions, we'll progress to more game type drills to further improve performance on the field. I'll develop a custom plan for each QB that after the first session based on each athlete's age, skill level, needs and in what type of offense they play in.

Awesome Coach

Coach Petrus is amazing! I hired him for several sessions with my younger brother who is a freshman quarterback. He was extremely knowledgable, providing excellent feedback on my brother's technique and teaching him drills that would be effective in perfecting his motion. Coach Petrus was easy to communicate with and worked around our schedule, even driving out to Buda to do training sessions in our neighborhood park. After just a few sessions my brother saw immediate improvement and became more confident in his position. I would highly recommend Coach Petrus!

Coach Petrus is top notch! After one session my son has already learned so much about QB mechanics and was really excited and motivated for future sessions. I recommend Coach Petrus for anyone looking to take their QB skills to the next level (beginner level to advanced level).

Coach Rus was awesome. He was totally professional, very positive, and made my kid want to keep coming back for more! My son has done different lessons for different things and this was by far his favorite. We Have nothing but positive things to say.

We're just two practices in but you can tell it's already making a difference. Coach Petrus is great with players of all ages and super positive. We plan on using him for a while.

Coach Russ is professional and personable and relates well to kids and adults alike. My 12 year old son is inspired, motivated and committed to learning all that Coach has to teach him. Coach is experienced, knowledgeable and resourceful. He pays close attention to the athletes natural abilities and focuses on improving those along with implementing new strategies for increasing his strengths on the field both physically and mentally.

Excellent Coach! Very technical and knowledgeable. My son loved his lesson!

Coach "Russ" has already made a difference in my sons throwing after just two lessons. He's very patient with kids and is able to find the most valuable areas of improvement quickly. Instruction and communication are great. Highly recommended.

Coach Perry’s was great today. We switched up from our normal QB drills to wide receiver with our 8 year old and his attention to detail was fantastic as always.

Coach Rus has done an excellent job teaching the fundamentals to my son. He knows when to add additional techniques to his coaching while preserving the fundamentals already learned. He is very patient and my son enjoys the coaching sessions.

Coach Petrus is a really good coach. My son really like his teaching style. My son is a QB in Football and a Pitch in Baseball and both throws are different. After the first session, my son said "I get it". We will continue on with Coach.

Great first session with coach P! Jack learned a ton!

Great first experience with Coach Petrus. He is very technical. We look forward to working with him in the future.

Coach Petrus was great! He worked with my 12y/o son specifically on quarterback skills. He was engaging and able to relay concepts in a way my son could understand. He also provided feed back for our son and exercises for him to work on in between sessions. I would highly recommend him.

Coach Rus was professional and upbeat during our session. He was also very responsive and accommodating with respect to scheduling. We enjoyed our session with him.

Coach Petrus has done a fantastic job with my son. He is adamant on correcting fundamentals before moving into more complex drills. His patience is a virtue that is present during every session and he has the ability to keep the athlete’s head clear from stress. It’s one thing to know your stuff, but it’s another thing entirely to be able to teach others what they need to know, in a way they can digest, at the level they’re at. Well done coach!

Coach Petrus has been great working on my Son's technique and throwing motion. I have seen excellent progress in his development.

Coach Petrus is an outstanding coach...highly recommended!

My son who is 14 yrs old and has been a QB since flag at age 5 had his first session this morning and both my son and I learned a lot. My son likes to make plays and likes strength and conditioning but mechanics are not something he ever wants to work on. Coach Petrus not only worked with my son on his mechanics, balance and drills, he explained everything thoroughly so that my son understood exactly how each part of his body is affecting his throw. Coach Petrus also coached me on how to work with my son between sessions. This is exactly what we both needed. I’ve known some of the issues with my sons mechanics but didn’t know how to correct them and definitely was not able to explain the smallest details so that my son could understand in a way that motivated him to put in that specific work. On the way home, my son was talking about what he learned in the session the whole drive home, This is the first time he’s ever been excited about working on his mechanics. Coach Petrus is an excellent coach that got my son fully engaged in the first session. We couldn’t be happier.

Coach Pterus (rus) was superb. My 8 year old Son Miller immediately improved his 3 step drop at QB as well as was zinging passes better than ever before even after just an hour. He was patient and kind in nature. Can't recommend him enough!

Coach Petrus is a great coach!!! After the first session Collin made a big jump with his throws. Coach Rus is definitely a great coach and would recommend him to anyone.

Great First Session

Coach P is awesome. Great QB coach. Really happy with my son's first session. He pointed out some simple techniques to work on with my son at home to improve his mechanics. Can't wait for our next meeting.

Coach Rus is an amazing QB coach. My wife and I can't believe how much progress our son has made over just a few sessions. Not to mention, our son really enjoys each coaching session. Coach Rus was able to quickly diagnose the issues with his passing and make corrections. Coach Rus has shown our son proper throwing techniques (yes, there are more than one), proper footwork on different types of plays, how to read a defense, etc. Coach Rus clearly learned from the best and is a wealth of QB/football knowledge. Not to mention, he's a nice guy and great with kids.

Coach Petrus did an excellent job with my 10 yr old. He took the time to explain the reasons behind any change he made with his throwing mechanics. We seen great improvement in accuracy with the small tweaks he made. We look forward to more sessions with Coach Rus

Great coaching , great football knowledge, fun and very helpful

Enjoyed Coach Rus’s ability to keep my son’s head in the training and coached my son’s emotions away from frustration. Nice work ! Positive and relatable. Thank you !

Great coach! Works well with my college athlete!

Coach Petrus is exactly the coach my son needs. He has a great eye for quarterback skills and knows how to push for improvement. Most importantly he is working hard to customize his feedback and encouragement. My son and I leave every session saying “that was an awesome session and coach Rus is fantastic!”

Coach Petrus did a great job in my son's first session. My son thought he was great and is looking forward to working with him again.
