Football Training

The best way to get the most out of your football training is by seeking out help from a football coach or trainer. Professional athletes, like New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, have turned to personal training to focus on strength training, footwork and acceleration at the line of scrimmage. CoachUp has thousands of football coaches located throughout the country that can focus on developing your skills for your specific position. No two positions in football are the same, so working with a specialized coach, whether for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, or linemen, will dramatically set you apart from others on the field. All of the coaches featured on CoachUp.com are the best at what they do, and have under gone a thorough vetting process. In most cases, coaches have played football at the collegiate and/or professional level or have previously coached at the high school varsity or collegiate level.

We have a wide range of football coaches who specialize in all skill development areas and positions for football. If you’re currently a quarterback or aspire to be one, working with a quarterback coach on quick release and footwork in the pocket will help fine tune your game. Alternatively, if you are a wide receiver or tight end, look to find a coach who has expertise in running routes and catching the ball. Maybe you want to transition from being a receiver and concentrate on the ground game, like being a running or fullback. A running back coach would be able to focus on drills that improve speed, agility, and juking out the defense. And of course, for lineman, there are coaches that can work on the finer points of blocking and tackling.

All of the coaches on CoachUp will be able to help elevate your game, and many are current and former professional football players. If you are training to be a running back, it could be beneficial to enlist the help of former NFL running back Tim Hightower. With over 2,000 career rushing yards, 24 touchdowns, and a Super Bowl game on his resume, he has/is a wealth of knowledge. If you are looking to be the field general, then start training with former NFL Quarterback, John Skelton who specializes in training both quarterback and receivers. If you are trying to be the ultimate lead blocker, there is NFL Hall of Famer and 6 time Pro Bowl-er, Joe DeLamielleure. Joe not only played as an offensive lineman in the NFL, but has coached at the collegiate level, with many of his pupils reaching the NFL.
