The Scouting Academy is an industry tested, 16 week online platform led by mentors such as Jerry Angelo, Wade Phillips, Louis Riddick, Chris Palmer, Mike Sullivan, Tom Walsh, and others motivated to educate the next generation. You will be able to create a flexible class schedule around your life and have full access to the library of information and the over 190 years of experience from our instructors.
The Scouting Academy has been designed to build a foundational knowledge of the game of football as it relates to evaluation of personnel. Scouting with context is the key to successful evaluation. Our philosophy values scouts who have a coaching background as they possess the ability to differentiate between prospects using the context of scheme. Currently, there is not standardized background or training system to enter scouting. The Scouting Academy will create a fundamental understanding of the techniques, schematics, and overall principles of each individual position—focusing mainly on physical evaluation. We will accomplish this with a rich curriculum facilitated by former NFL coaches and well as current and former NFL executives. Our objective for the Academy is to provide a foundation for students to propel themselves into scouting positions within the NFL, NCAA, and major media outlets.
The academy is designed for:
- Current and former coaches who are looking to transition into scouting
- Coaches and recruiters who want to beef up their skill set
- Former players who want to prepare themselves for future opportunities
- Media personnel who want to enhance their ability to generate content
- Agents who want to be more prepared to recruit the right players
