0047 Will Hewlett - Quarterback mechanics expert
Having trained more than 60 Division 1 quarterbacks in the past several years, quarterback coach Will Hewlett has quickly become one of the country’s most sought after experts on the position. Hewlett is known for his focus on elite-level passing mechanics, helping quarterbacks improve speed of release, accuracy, and performance under pressure. “Traditionally, the quarterback has been one of the most under- coached positions on the team,” says Hewlett. “Playing QB can be both frustrating and rewarding. I love seeing the progression from a youth camper into an elite position player – physically and mentally.” Parents and coaches alike have seen the progress Coach Hewlett can bring about in a young QB – often referred to as the “difference maker”. Hewlett is constantly traveling throughout the country working with quarterback prospects from coast to coast. Hewlett says, “I love working with developing talents all over the country. To meet with a young player’s coaches, see the programs and even watch the progress unfold on Friday nights is as fulfilling to me as anything in my career.” Hewlett has consulted with NFL, UFL, and NCAA coaches and continues to work with quarterbacks in the SEC, ACC, Big 10 and other conferences. In addition, Coach Hewlett is a top-ranked speaker at the Glazier Clinics tour, the largest football coaching clinics with over 26,000 active members and has co-authored a top selling book on passing mechanics. Hewlett is the first Australian-born quarterback to play NCAA football. His playing career extended to the pro-ranks, with a stint in the Arena League. His college experience included the University of Nevada and the University of Dubuque. Will lives near San Francisco, CA where he conducts NFL preparation and development in Livermore, CA. He lives with his wife, Julia, and their four young children, Locklan, Nova, Braxton and Camden. http://www.therangetraining.com/staff/ Website: http://www.therangetraining.com/ Twitter: @WillHewlett

0030 Charlie Coiner - NFL coach turned innovator
In 1983, with no coaching experience, Waynesboro, Virginia native Charlie Coiner had big dreams and made a bold move by approaching a new, now national, coaching figure. His timing was perfect. In 1983, Charlie Coiner served as a graduate assistant at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Mack Brown, later Head Coach at the University of Texas, had just begun his first head-coaching job. Coiner stayed for five years—and proved his worth. Thereafter, Coiner rode the coaching carousel. After Appalachian, Coiner worked on offense, defense, recruiting, and special teams for Minnesota, Austin Peay, Vanderbilt, Texas Southern, Louisville, UT Chattanooga, LSU, and again at Texas Southern. Coiner coached for the NFL’s Chicago Bears (Special Teams, 2001-05) and Buffalo Bills (Tight Ends, 2006-09). During this tenure with the Bills, he helped lead a young group of tight ends to career numbers while they also contributed as blockers for a rushing attack that ranked fifth in the AFC. In 2011, Coiner moved to Austin, Texas, and took a break from coaching. He then began using the unusual time he had away from the game, as Coiner says, “to become a better coach.” Coiner began digitally converting dozens of playbooks in order to find plays more quickly once he returned to coaching and First Down Playbook was born. Coach Coiner talks: What he learned working for Mack Brown The importance of networking and relationships Quality control How play drawings teach and communicate Making the jump from college to pro How players develop the culture Differences between college and pro players and player development How we teach people is beginning to change Much of today’s generation is interactive How quality control translates to every level Why you must give yourself a number of plays to teach and stick with it Why it’s important to have guidelines about number of plays Why everything begins with the play Time limits on coaches Why the play diagram is the most wasted resource First Down Playbook and how it came about ...and much more
