My focus is on skill development recognizing that drills don't cure ills but skills cure ills and that speed, technique, strategy and execution can be taught. My specialty is Quarterbacks but I also work with Offensive lineman, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, Defensive Ends, Cornerbacks and Safeties. I know youth football. I am not a psychic. I just watch a lot of game film.
