QB/WR TRAINING

               When athletes dream about making it to the next level, very seldom do they envision the process that leads to the goal. At the Gunslinger Academy we understand that process, and have developed a proven learning experience for athletes of all ages. Private 1 on 1 instruction is the staple to every great quarterback’s development. Private lessons create an environment for players to learn at their own pace, helping them to better understand the position and game as a whole. When it comes to player development, details of the passing game, and absolute results, the Gunslinger Academy is in a league of it’s own. Coach Colston has tutored more than 100 of Knoxville’s top gunslingers as well as Over 200 quarterbacks from 37 states that have participated in the “Gunslinger QB Challenge”.
