    Inside Virginia Tech’s In-Game Defensive Operations: VA Tech’s longtime defensive coordinator Bud Foster has continually harnessed a reputation as being one of the best in-game adjusters in football.

    The Scouting Academy: I had a very good experience during my time with the Scouting Academy! The class helped me gain more insight and hone my skills to effectively communicate and identify Critical Factors/Position Specifics by position. The skills taught in the class are transferable to any level/area of the game – high school, college, aspiring NFL personnel, media, etc. Beginning or prospective students need to know what they are signing up for because the class will push you. The time commitment is demanding, so the individuals must have a realistic understanding prior to joining so they can maximize their experience. Overall, I would recommend this class to those with an intermediate football background to the football junkie that wants to gain a better understanding of personnel, individual positions, and report writing.   –Ricky Ciccone
