NOTE – I did this blog just to emphasize some of the work of the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association. Not really open to the public, but over 2,000 coaches will be hanging out at the Hilton and visiting and taking notes, and exchanging ideas about football.
The OHSFCA/Under Armour high school football clinic will be held on February 7, 8, and 9th at the Columbus Easton Hilton.
The last two years attendance has been near the 2,200 mark in attendance. Most coaches consider the clinic both the largest and best organized in the country. By far, the best attended. High school football in Ohio may not be producing the most D1 scholarship players in the country, but Ohio’s football organization is one of the top programs in the country.
Much of the success of the clinic goes to the OHSFCA Regional Directors who are responsible for running the clinic smoothly. Over the years, the quality of speakers has always been excellent. Names are important, but the ability to provide useful information is huge. Again this year, the speaker list covers all phases of college football. From Power Five, to MAC to Division 2 to Division 3. Every year the clinic offers the Ohio HS state champion and runner-up coach in each Division speak.
Speakers for the clinic this year. With such a commitment from the speakers, this list is subject to change. For the most part, the list should be good.
