Coach Smith really gets the best out of his kids but also connects with them on a personal level.  He’s very easy to talk to if you have questions or concerns.  I would recommend Coach Smith to any athlete.  From those who need basic building blocks to start their careers to kids who are knocking on the doors to college programs.  You won’t be disappointed working with him!
•    Justin Abney, Pac – 7 All Conference, All Region II First Team 

"Eric Smith knows football and the details of Quarterback and Receiver play that would help any player improve his skills and get the most out of his God-given talent. I never coached a player that worked harder on and off the field than Eric Smith. From the weight room to the film room to the practice and game fields, Eric was all about improving and being the best player he could be. Now it is his turn to share that experience and knowledge with other young players that want to be the best they can be.

I would send my sons to Eric Smith - he would help them get better as both a player and as a person… and have fun doing it."

•    Mark Miller   Former College Football Coach and NFL Quarterback

As a parent and football coach I've worked with my son, Ty, since he was little. Its been a fun successful ride but eventually we found he needed the insight and expertise of a position coach.  A coach that could inspire and teach.  Eric's QB knowledge, communication skills and passion for the game was a perfect fit.  The mechanics and confidence learned gave Ty a competitive edge that directly translated to the field.  Our football team went 13-0 this season, with Ty at QB and I feel our time spent with Eric made all the difference.  Thanks coach Eric, look forward to working with you this spring.
