"Playing and coaching quarterback is a passion of mine. I'm a small-town kid from Hollywood, South Carolina. I wouldn't admit it then, but I'll admit it now. I wasn't mentally or physically prepared for college athletics. What helped was my will to learn and a positive mindset when facing adversity. Football has supplied me with the opportunity to learn from great mentors and coaches. I've traveled the world and experienced valuable life lessons that translate into everyday life. It is my mission to provide the tools needed to put our athletes on an even platform. I can guarantee that they will be prepared, and will strive to be the best." - QBFT Founder, Cleveland McCoy
