Client Reviews

Only one session with Troy so far and I already see a marked improvement in my daughter's confidence and skills. On a freshman football team with 47 players, the coaches don't have a lot of time to spend improving one individual's techniques. He was able to quickly peg areas to improve, work with her on drills and techniques to strengthen her skills in those areas, and send her off more confident in her abilities. Though she went for football training, I can see how what he is teaching her will also benefit her in fielding for softball too. She's looking forward to further training.

Coach Troy was great! His training is definitely top notch. My son came with away with improvements after just one session. I would highly recommend Coach Troy!

Today was my 12 year old's first session with Coach Troy. My son was nervous, but immediately felt comfortable with Troy. Troy was patient and positive but still got a good workout in. Cannot wait until the next workout. We are very confident my son will learn a lot from Coach Troy.

One of the best workout my high school son has has ever, would recommend Troy to anyone looking to gain speed and agility. So personable and very engaging with a teen is not easy and Troy did it easily!

Coach Troy is Great! My son Andrew had his first workout with him and learned a lot in just one day. Andrew is looking forward to his next training session. Coach Troy’s knowledge for the game is going to help Andrew in every aspect of the game and training for years to come.

Just had a first session for my son with Coach Troy. Great foundation and really excited for my son to work with Troy and see where he can take him....

Coach Troy was awesome!!!! My son wants to play receiver at the collegiate level and Coach Troy was a blessing with all the insight and knowledge he has. We have trained with other coaches but Coach Troy is the best by far!!!

Coach has been doing a great job with my son Ethan. We've had 3 sessions thus far and will be looking to keep weekly upkeep before the 2019 Fall season begins. More updates to come as we progress together.

Coach Troy is awesome teacher. I learned a lot about the game from a professional's point of view. We also did drills that helped improve my overall skill set as a W.R. Looking forward to our next session.

Great first session. My son had a great time. Coach Troy knows how to challenge him to be better while making the training fun. Highly recommended. My son looks forward to his next session.

My son just had his first session with Coach Troy. It was great - he developed a great rapport and was encouraging and positive. Troy has a lot of knowledge and my son can tell he can learn a lot and it will improve his skills significantly. He works him hard and gets a lot done in a hour. Well worth it! We are signing up for more sessions. My son is a sophomore and a receiver and corner on his high school team.

My 10 year old son just completed his first workout with Coach Troy. He came home with a huge smile on his face and said “that was so much fun! I really like him!” He then spent the next 10+ minutes describing the drills he ran through and the timed test he completed. He is already excited to see how he will do when he’s retested by Coach Troy at the end of the summer. We can already tell this is going to be a great relationship!

Troy has shown a natural feel for the game and has a very high football IQ to go along with his ability to be a play-maker.
