What is Dump Truck Academy?
OFFENSE AND DEFENSIVE LINEMEN TRAINING
When I was growing up in Lawton Oklahoma I had a Tonka dump truck that I push it all over the house. I consider it my first training tool to becoming a great offensive and defensive linemen. It taught my body how to bend and change direct at a drop of a dime. I know for a fact my game followed the same pattern. (Not the dump part) but the low center of gravity and moving fast win the angle or beat you to a spot. Football is a game of math: Inches, angles, torque and power generated. I feel that we are the best at teaching those things to our next generation of football players. You can drop in or train monthly. We can put the right program together for your football goals..
