About this pro

I am a former Division I football player - University of Maryland. During my years as a Terrapin I played three positions - tight end, inside linebacker and h-back. 

My goal is to improve your athletes mental and physical performance. I focus on the complete player so that they succeed on and off the field. I encourage my athletes to be engaged in their community. I model this as a volunteer with the Phoenix Police Department Community Outreach Board. I also serve as a youth leader at North Phoenix Baptist Church in addtition to being a father of two amazing kids.

I have a total of 11 years of football coaching experience ranging from middle school to the junior college level.  I have experience coaching offensive/defensive line, linebackers, tight ends, receivers, running back and defensive secondary. 

On the field I will employ a variety of football related drills to improve your athletes football functionality. I also offer off the field in class sessions where I teach an athlete how to study film. He, or she, will learn how to recognize tendencies and cues which will give them an advantage against their opponent.

I have a strong understanding of the college recruiting process and I can share with the athlete's family what they should and should not do. 

Finally, my ultimate goal is to help your athlete get the most out of their God give ability. If they improve in just one area that is one more step toward them becoming the best athlete they can be.
