Special Teams Football Academy going Full Time

I am excited to announce that I will be taking Special Teams Football Academy full time and try to turn a passion into a career. Over the years I've realized a calling to coach, help mentor and influence the lives of young athletes, and now seems like the right time.  I just wanted to thank all of you parents, athletes, coaches, mentors and friends who have helped, supported, pushed me, and gave me feedback over the years.

I'm excited for this move on so many levels.  There have been many things I've wanted to do over the years with this Academy, but time just didn't allow.  

I will have various announcements coming to you all soon as I better lay the foundation for STFA.  There will be new & improved programs in place so I that I am more able to help you in your training and recruiting efforts on more of a consistent basis.

My goal is to be able to travel more and be more accommodating to our specialists in the WI, ND, SD, IA and greater MN areas and bring training closer to you as well, and have more hours available for training.

If you have any questions, ideas or comments, please feel free to reach out to me.  Thank you all for your ongoing support over the years.

For more information please contact us!

A Special Teams Football Academy student of ours, is one that we actively train and/or help with the college recruiting process.  All of these athletes have been a part of the Special Teams Football Academy program between 3 months to 6 years.  We value the loyalty we get from our athletes and parents and the opportunities and results we have been able to help produce for them.



We believe that no athlete is the same.  We train each specialist individually to bring out their strengths and maximize their abilities.


Last year, we helped find 90% of our Class of 2016 specialists an opportunity to play college football (even if they ended up choosing another sport to play or not continuing on).

Thank you for your trust in training your athlete!
