Brief Summary: I have spent more than 25 years focusing on the comprehensive development of the student-athlete and to preparing them for the challenges of life beyond the playing field. I have discovered that during the elementary, middle school and high school years, every student-athlete is confronted with a variety of developmental challenges. I joined RedLine Athletics to address these challenges. I am passionate about assisting the student-athletes in the Arlington/Mansfield community develop the skills necessary to lead successful, productive lives, and become leaders of, and contributors to life.

Brief Summary- I got into the teaching, mentoring, and coaching profession because leading and developing young people (in sports) is my passion. I truly enjoy watching the week to week work that a student/athlete puts into their “craft” and then seeing the benefits of that work on game day. I believe that through sports an individual can build responsibility, character, team work, and a work ethic that can translate over to whatever that individual choses to do with his or her life. And together we can build a solid foundation for the future of that young person’s career in life.

I was a supervisor for the launch of Developmental Football with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017; 2018, coached WR’s with Southeastern University during the 2018-2019 season, became IFPA Personal Fitness Trainer certified, and currently enjoying the opportunity to be a part of the phenomenal team of RedLine Athletics! Let’s Go!!!
Friendly and knowledgable coaches make parents and kids alike feel welcome and comfortable.
I am so appreciative of Redline. They are keeping my son active and his fitness has improved leaps and bounds since starting at Redline. The coaches are top notch and know their stuff. I also love how convenient the schedule is, we can go to classes whenever it works for our family. We will for sure sign up again, the investment is worth every penny.
We are so thrilled with RedLine Athletics. Our son is learning how to condition and take care of his body. He is also getting training for his specific sport. We could not be more happy with the amazing facility and trainers. Highly recommend!
We love Redline! My son goes and works hard each time, coming out tired yet satisfied. I can already see some results in core strength and stamina. Definitely worth every penny!!!
We are a couple months in and are seeing amazing results! My daughter’s skills and speed are improving more and more everyday! Thank you Redline!
Great, positive, upbeat trainers who really push the kids to want to do more. Just being there puts you in a good mood! Love this place!
So happy we found Redline. It’s the perfect compliment to my son’s baseball team’s practice. Already seeing growth after a short amount of time.
The trainers are top notch. My son’s strength and speed numbers increased a ton over the summer. It helped his confidence tremendously
