'Z' History

Achieving a degree in 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 given a professional opportunity in Dallas, then to the AFL Portland Forest Dragons,  NJ Red Dogs, the 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 several aspects of football has been and will continue to be a privilege.

Designing, endorsing and coaching professional evaluation camps for players within pro teams along with pro/semi-pro players looking to improve skills and return to or play pro football is a specialty.  Evaluations entail both mental and physical training.

My stance for a team or leagues success goes beyond playbook implementation and ventures into development of the framework for long-term accomplishments.


As a former player, experienced coach, scout and understanding the importance of special teams there is a built trust over the years working with professional organizations.  It's always a blessing to learn from some of the best (and not the best) to continue on the journey of football knowledge.  A long time member of the AFCA, certified with the ASEP and involved with the EAFCA. 

My all-time favorite NFL player is Reggie White who was not only a game changing/impact player 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."
