What Coaches Said:
I just starting watching your clinic. It is amazing, best money I have spent on a video series. I love how your drills in transition enhance what you do. One of the best coaches in Montana, Eric Hays told me all of his drills are connected to what they do. I can say the same thing for you. Good stuff. I can’t wait to spend more time watching. I will let you know when I have questions. Zane Warnken, Corvallis HS, Corvallis, MT
I really enjoyed your clinic today. Thank you. Hey, I'd love to get the video of the clinic whenever it is available. I'd be more than happy to send you a check if you plan to place it on a DVD? Daniel Paxon, Niles North, Niles, IL
Coach Kuhn, we thoroughly enjoyed coming to the clinic. Always good to get some fresh ideas. Could you send us your breakdown drills for the blocker/mover? We enjoyed your guys as well. Great group of young men. Always good to see Coaches doing things the right way. Good luck and hope you have a great season. Thanks. David Duncan, Plymouth HS, Plymouth, IN.
