SDU Coach: Defensive Backs
In 2015, I started training defensive backs of all ages and skill levels with fellow SDU coach Derek Harris at Lockdown Prep. We teach proper technique that will help them become better DBs and help them reach whatever football goals they may have set for themselves.
Why SDU? Why NOT SDU? I wanted to give back to the game that gave me so many great opportunities and experiences. No matter the skill level, I enjoy the chance to work with youth and build confidence and help teach the greatest team sport! SDU allows me to pass my knowledge and love of the game on to the youth. I am always excited to be a catalyst for growth and learning to young people who want to learn and accept the challenge to get better!

I enjoy training independently or in group training to work on position drills, break down film, and most importantly teaching and helping the youth UNDERSTAND the game.
SDU allows me to be free, mentor, and provide information and knowledge to the new generation of kids playing this game that we all love. My goal is to make better players but even better men through the mentor aspect.

It excites me to see kids with a competitive attitude whom are coachable, eager to learn, willing to push their limits and get better everyday.

SDU provides a platform for kids of Central Ohio to compete, learn, and get better and I am simply passionate about doing what I can to help those reach the next level!
