Raves for our First Clinic (Worcester, Ma., August 10)
"I thought the program was terrific."
–Jimmy Tucker, head coach, Nashoba Regional HIgh, Bolton, Ma.
"I thought the program was phenomenal. It was logical, backed by science and overall in the best interest of the kids, which is what we're all about as coaches."
–Joe Beveridge, head coach, Tantasqua High, Fiskdale, Ma.
"Very good, a very worthwhile experience. We learned new ways to practice, new drills to do. I thought the panel of Dr. Cantu, Buddy Teevens, Coach Ditka and Chris Berman was fantastic."
–Jim Pisegna, Burncoat High, Worcester, Ma.
"I thought the program was excellent. This is the way football is going. Particularly, the drills from Stanford and Dartmouth can be shown to high school coaches to get this done faster."
–Steve Dembowski, head coach, Swampscott (Ma.) High
"Terry, I listened to you speak in Canton, Ohio, and also attended the meeting in Worcester. It has revived me as a coach. I have totally bought into the words of Dr. Cantu, Coach Ditka, Coach Teevens and yourself. We need people to understand that football is evolving into a safer game. It is a sacred game that can provide an amazing number of opportunities to the young men who play it."
–Eric Cumba, head coach, St. Thomas Aquinas High, Dover, N.H.
"...just absolutely awesome."
–Jim Kelleher, head coach, Abington (Ma.) High
"...really exciting. Some of the video footage we can show the
kids will help keep them safe."
–Doug Orland, assistant coach, Campbell High, Litchfield, N.H.
"I have watched the video, very much enjoyed it and found it helpful.
We have been heading toward this as a sport for years, and we want to be on the cutting edge, ahead of the curve. We will be implementing this ASAP."
–John Bowen, head coach, Hephzibah (Ga.) High
"I want to try to get out the message about Practice Like Pros. I've said all the time down here there's too much, too much tackling, physical contact at practice. Let's come together and do something here in Atlanta."
–Glenn Ford Jr., i-dareU football training, off-season coach of DeAntre Turman,
high school player who died on a suburban Atlanta practice field, August 16, 2013
"Terry, I thought it was very good, truly a professional presentation. Your introduction leading to the coaches' talks was excellent. It grabbed your attention right away. The coaches were also excellent!! I believe it will be very well received wherever it is viewed and on every level. We must all face the fact that the game must be made safer. As a former head coach, I often wonder how many wins I left on the practice field by over-emphasizing technique, tempo and toughness."
