Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson has launched the LaDainian Tomlinson Preparatory Academy, a new program designed to provide comprehensive education, in combination with premier athletic performance training, in order to provide the student athlete the opportunity for success in earning an athletic scholarship.
Tomlinson partnered with fellow former TCU football teammates Shannon Brazzell, Russell Gary and Greg Walls to form the Academy, which complements the knowledge and training provided to athletes by coaches in schools and leagues across the country.
“The Academy is about more than just sports; it’s a vision,” Tomlinson said. “It’s about using athletics as a platform to obtain scholarship opportunities and, ultimately, life-long success. We believe that participation in our programs represents a small investment that can yield large returns in the form of scholarship opportunities and even career success.”
While many other programs focus solely on athletic performance, the LaDainian Tomlinson Preparatory Academy goes beyond the field, making sure student athletes and their parents receive proper information and instruction.
Academy leadership is made up of former collegiate coaches and players, NFL veterans and corporate executives. Registration for Academy clinics is available through the Academy’s website at http://www.lt-academy.com.
An upcoming Elite Football Performance Clinic, Skills and Drills, will be held March 2 in Lewisville and Keller, Texas.
