Over the second weekend of February, Tom George of QBimpact and Koreen Burch of Burch Sports Performance will provide leadership and skill development sessions.
And they’ll do so with Jacksonville’s Mandarin High School for a venue.
The event will include a three day itinerary (February 10-12) which features classroom work and field work.
“Koreen and I share the same vision,” George said. “As coaches, we each want to use the game of football as a platform to speak to young athletes about character and leadership, and in today’s society, just how to act.”
Classroom work focuses on secondary coverage, defensive fronts, pass concepts and character/leadership.
The field work provides an emphasis in mechanics, foot work, play action, deep ball and reads.
“We’re pushing athletes to their full potential on and off the field,” Burch said. “Teaching fundamentals and proper techniques.”
Burch brings both a players and a coaches perspective when it comes to his role with football.
The Ball State three-year letter winner (2007-11) spent 11 months as a defensive back for the Philadelphia Soul and the Jacksonville Sharks (2011-12) of the Arena Football League .
He went on to spend an additional six months as both a defensive back and kick returner in the Ultimate Indoor Football League (2012-13) while maintaining a role as defensive backs, wide receivers and return specialist coach for a season at Duval Charter (Jacksonville, FL).
Burch founded Burch Sports Performance nearly three years ago and has since developed 7v7 teams, camps and training programs.
George spent over two decades as a Regional NSW/ATFP Coordinator and Naval Aviator, Senior Chief, with 12 deployments to the Middle East and other countries.
Prior to his military service, the veteran competed at the quarterback position at Honolulu’s Kaiser and St. Louis High Schools.
George went on to the University of Arizona and played two more years in Europe in 1994, where he led the league in both passing yards and passing touchdowns.
As a coach, he spent eight seasons in a role as the passing coordinator at Clay High School, which included an appearance in the 2013 Florida 5A state title game.
During George’s tenure, the Blue Devils led the state in major offensive categories.
He has assisted college camps with QB development, including Florida State, Florida and Ohio State.
George also has four years of experience as an Elite 11 Regional quarterback coach, and two years with Debartolo Sports.
In 2015 as quarterback coach with Jones (Jones, OK), the Longhorns went 13-1 overall and advanced to the Oklahoma State Class 3A State Semifinals.
Last season, Jones made a return to the semifinals where it defeated Marshall 36-29 and went on to claim a Class 3A state title following a 16-6 win over Plainview.
