As a coach it is very easy sometimes to become insular with your ideas and the way your program operates. Working with Marcus this off-season gave our program that insight and so much more. I was able to present our plans to Marcus in the areas of periodazation, culture building, and tactics and in turn received in-depth and detailed feedback and rationale on those items.

His insightful questioning and guided self help discovery is an important part of any coaches journey. Many mentors who claim to know very rarely have the professional background and knowledge or the inner workings of their chosen subject.
