About Taking Back Football
MissionTo help every kid, whose shoes I once walked in, chase their football dreams like I did. To be a positive role model for young players and to teach them values beyond football. And also to serve the sport that has given me so much by teaching the future generation and promoting it’s continued role in our lives.
Values“I feel fortunate to be in ‘football season’ throughout the year. I enjoy interacting with and coaching youth athletes in an effort to provide a valuable and positive football experience. I approach this work more as a teacher and role model than a coach. My programs are based on fundamental mastery, technique isolation, and developing consistency. In addition to the Xs & Os of the game, I look for opportunities to instill mental and social lessons that will help kids become better ball players, teammates, students, family members, and citizens. Personal development of every player– regardless of experience or ability– is my expectation for every camp.” Tyler Blum
