Dale was unbelievably helpful in my pursuit of the NFL. 

 

He helped me with both the movement based skills and my knowledge base to put me in the best possible place to show the scouts what I was capable of.

 

His knowledge and ability to convey messages to a player is brilliant and his passion for the game is obvious.

 

My stumbling block came down to my age, but the NFL scouts stated that my skills and ability were comfortably good enough for the league and I am in no doubt that the preparation I underwent with Dale played a big part in that.​

Dale at DB:AF has been really helpful consistently throughout my american football journey from Yorkshire Assassins u17s, u19s to Great Britain and now finally LBU, surpassing the duties you’d usually expect of a coach.

 

I’ve been working with Dale since I was 12 years old; he’s helped me develop as a player by making sure my techniques and skills were always the best they could be with his extensive knowledge of the game from all positions.

 

He's also helped me off the field by giving me the confidence to try out for different Academies and the Great Britain squad.

Coach Dale helped me to set and achieve my goal of becoming a GB athlete from the very beginning.

 

I remember sitting down with him at age 14 and planning a step by step progression on how I was going to achieve my goal.

 

From there, Coach Dale was nothing but supportive and always helped me adapt and overcome in the face of adversity!
