About Coach Z - Mission & History  
"If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him ... but let him ask in faith, with no doubting"      James 1:5

Coach Z is not responsible for mental, physical or monetary damages due to information or links within this site.  Being involved in the sport of football and following dreams is a choice with risks.
My all-time favorite player is Reggie White who was not only a game changing/impact player in the USFL and NFL but is quoted as saying, "I want people to see me as a man of God.  I want my kids to see me as a man of God.  In fact, I want the fact that I am a man of God to be so overpowering that they will forget that I even played football."
Along with achieving a degree in the Psychological Foundations of Sport I've been involved as a player, coach and scout within pro football since 1994.   As a defensive back/special teams player that began in semi-pro and blessed with a professional opportunity in Dallas, the AFL Portland Forest Dragons,  NJ Red Dogs, XFL's NY/NJ Hitmen and later NY Dragons, I felt the need to play (retired at 40) to understand the competition and emotions of football.  The on-field (non-textbook) learning has been instrumental to becoming a successful coach, scout and consultant.  Experiences cover team, player and league building.  Although I do promote playing for the 'love of the game' I also understand this is an entertainment business.  Learning from great minds involved within different aspects of football has been and will continue to be cherished.

After building a trust over the years working with organizations coaching and scouting at pro tryouts/combines along with improving players skills in order to return to or play pro football is a specialty.  Evaluations entail both mental and physical.


My stance for a teams success goes beyond playbook implementation and the importance of special teams.  It ventures into development of the team framework for long-term accomplishments.

A long time member of the AFCA and ASEP certified.
Following ethical and moral guidelines, Coach Z is dedicated to football development.  If this website helps one player, team or league become better it's purpose has been achived.

My mission is to provide information along with connections to staff and programs to meet your football needs.  Assisting organizations and individuals is the goal.  I hope this site creates an atmosphere for determination in development and success to all involved within this great sport.
