The only place where 'success' comes before 'work' is in the dictionary - Vince Lombardi

Cassius, originally from Maryland, was a 3-star defensive back coming out of the junior college ranks. He finished his collegiate career at the University of Kansas where he was an All- Big XII performer for the Jayhawks. During his time with the Jayhawks he was coached by Dave Campo, former Defensive Coordinator and Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys, who tutored NFL greats such as Deion Sanders, Darren Woodson, Larry Brown, Kevin Smith and Brock Marion. After college Cassius would go on to spend time on the roster of both the Cleveland Browns (NFL) and Calgary Stampeders (CFL). 

Cassius is available for hire as a private Defensive Back Coach, this service will include:

  • High quality instruction, including tips and techniques used at the NFL and Division 1 level.
  • Breakdown of player's strengths and weaknesses are from both in-person evaluation and film.
  • Offer chalk talk to teach the nuances of the position, including angles and tackling.
  • Individual DB drills, conditioning, and sand work.
  • Man coverage principles.
  • Zone coverage principles.
  • Work on flexibility and mobility.
  • Recruiting advice.
Why do I need a private DB coach?

At a typical practice, a player may only get 20-30 minutes of individual work each day. During that time the coach also has to worry about the dozen other players at that position as well. So private coaching can offer a much more personal and productive level of instruction. Training twice a week with Cassius for a month can offer more personal development than would typically happen within a normal season.
