QB Fundamentals and Drills that Promotes EFF Within Your Offense

 QB Fundamentals and Drills that Promotes EFF Within Your Offense



Natural competitive instincts are a must.
Spontaneity is a key – ability to exercise creativity to go outside the system.
Quick delivery – the quicker the throw, less time for defense to react. Compact and efficient
Agility and movement –  create with his feet.
Athletic intelligence (football smart) – the ability to think on his feet – identify opportunities and solve problems the instant that they occur in a game. That quality is in all great quarterbacks.           

They have “IT”.

The Coach

The veteran coach serves as the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Acosta has been involved in coaching at various levels, from high school to the NFL, for 19 years. Recently, he spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons at Syracuse before moving on to Cornell in 2015. At Syracuse in 2015, he served as the Orange’s wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator, ­where he helped attract 18 three-star recruits and five players ranked among the top 50 at their positions in the country, according to 247 sports.

Before his stint at Syracuse, Acosta spent one year as head coach at Widener (2013) and five seasons as assistant coach at TCNJ (2008-12), the last four as offensive coordinator. That came on the heels of two seasons as the tight ends coach at Delaware, where he helped the Blue Hens reach the 2007 FCS National Championship game and assisted in the development of future Super Bowl winning quarterback Joe Flacco.

Acosta served as head coach at both Marlboro HS (2002-04) and Monmouth Regional HS (2006-07), sandwiched around three years as wide receivers coach at TCNJ. He began his coaching career at Rowan (1999-2001) as the team’s defensive backs and special teams coach. In addition, he spent the 2008 (Cleveland Browns) and 2010 (New York Jets) NFL preseason in coaching internships.

In his one season as head coach at Widener, the Pride went 6-4 and averaged 439.7 yards and 31.8 points per game. At TCNJ, his offense set school records for passing yards (2,491) and completions (269) in a season in 2012. During the 2009 campaign, the offense scored the most points in a single-season in program history (309), as well as yards in a game (708 vs. FDU-Florham).

Acosta played four seasons at Rowan, helping the team to the Stagg Bowl, the Division III national championship game, each year. He graduated in 2000 with a degree in health and exercise science.
