Hello, I am Derrick Tatum head of Elite Talent Football Academy. We are a company here to help mold athletes and make them become better men in the community. I’ve had the privilege of playing for the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks in the NFL. I earned a four year Scholarship from the University of Kentucky and started this company to help develop young athletes on and off the field. I believe to be better than everyone else, first you need to believe you are and then you need to train like it. Here at Elite Talent Football Academy we build our athletes to be “Elite”!
We prepare our students (athletes) through film study and a proprietary training system geared toward each athlete’s specific position. We address and correct weaknesses, we prepare athletes for different game related scenarios, we implement specific workouts; speed and quickness drills that help them learn the craft of playing football and leads to better performance on the field.
WE are considered to be the better choice for young athletes because we believe our most important lessons are centered on social skills off the field. We are strong advocates for giving back to the community and instilling these values in our athletes.
Our program is designed to properly and adequately expose our athletes to local and national media, top caliber training, College Scouts, University visits, and array of sports, academic and higher education scholarships.
Our team is full of Family oriented staff members who all have competed and coached players at every level of football. For us football is not just a sport, it is a way of life. Unlike your some of our competitors, we specialize in working with football players only. We have a very unique niche and want to stick to it. Our family looks forward to working yours and help your athlete become the best they can be. After all, The Elite Athlete, is the Complete Athlete.
