I enjoy seeing the progression in kids development. On the field and off the field. To accel in football 'technique' is most important. Along with proper technique comes dicipline. Doing the same mechanics every single time, the correct way. All things that can be related to life in general. I also enjoy teaching the kids and helping them learn to become critical thinkers.
Coach Russell is very knowledgeable of the game. I love how he can simplify the game and make it easy to learn. Coach Russell also can demonstrate drills and teachings which makes it easy to learn. Great Coach!
