In a recent trip to Southwest Florida to visit schools and check in with current programs using The Fumble Pro, I came away with a couple of positive impressions. One, teams love it and it has proven to make an actual difference in their turnover ratio for the season. Two, teams have found new and different ways to incorporate The Fumble Pro into their everyday practice routines. That includes weight room, pre-practice, and practice. They taught me several different quarterback and receiver drills I hadn’t even thought of.  In receiver drills, the Fumble Pro was used to increase grip strength and the Wide Receiver’s ability to catch with their hands and bring the football to their body. We will have new videos loaded up to our website that demonstrate the Wide Receiver drills soon.
 
The thing that most caught my eye was quarterback coach Josh Vogelbach, of Sport Specific Training in Ft. Myers, using The Fumble Pro to teach quarterbacks increased pocket awareness. He found unique ways to incorporate it into his football drills. He stated, “the muscle memory the quarterbacks gained throughout training made a direct impact throughout the season.” One of his quarterbacks, a NCAA Division 1 prospect, made giant strides in reducing turnovers after taking hits in and out of the pocket. These drills can be used for players at every level – Pop Warner, High School, College, and the NFL.
 
We want to hear from you.  Let us know how you are using the Fumble Pro at your practices.  Even better, send us a video and we’ll make you famous on our website.  Please continue to check out our videos page as we update it with new drill ideas. 

 

As Rick and Joe passed the slot machines and roulette tables on their way to their booth at Nike’s Coach of the Year Clinic in Atlantic City, they were not distracted by the chance to win it big.  They knew that in their hands was their key to success – the Fumble Pro. They, however, left nothing to chance.  Before noon on Thursday they were already acting like high rollers standing in front of their high-definition display showcasing the Fumble Pro to some of the top high schools and colleges in the country.  The first day of the clinic flew by and, while everyone took some good advice and pointers from the highly qualified presenters, coaches were soon realizing that the key to their success was not in those meeting rooms – it was at the Innocept booth.  Every coach that got his hands on the latest in football training technology instantly felt how this tool could improve his team and, as usual, the lure of Innocept’s feature product was undeniable.

We went ‘all in’ on the second day of the clinic and really hit it big.  The clinic director was so impressed with the product that after purchasing a Fumble Pro for himself, he gave Rick and Joe the opportunity to showcase the Fumble Pro in the main meeting room.  In addition to over 230 coaches, Chris Petersen from Boise State, David Shaw from Stanford, and Mark Dantonio from Michigan State were also in attendance and looked on as the Innocept team demonstrated how teams can benefit from the Fumble Pro.  Looks of understanding and enlightenment filled the room as coaches realized that they no longer had to chalk up a gifted and athletic player as a ‘fumbler’.  They could now possess the tools to teach their players NOT to fumble instead of making them run an extra lap or do pushups – exercises that only punish players and do not help them improve.  The response from this demonstration was outstanding as many coaches left the meeting and immediately placed their orders for their own Fumble Pro.  Before it was all said and done, 3 high school championship teams from Delaware, New Jersey, and Virginia purchased Fumble Pros for their own programs along with multiple other high school and college teams.  The top teams in the nation also had the chance to witness the next big thing in sports-specific training and we could not be happier with the overwhelming response to our product. Dozens of teams expressed their interest in placing orders and we look forward to helping all of these teams succeed in the future and are thankful for everyone’s support.  We are also thankful that Rick and Joe escaped the Atlantic City casinos with their dignity and bank accounts in tact.

Cheers

The Innocept Team
