Tony Reed Football Academy
Quarterback, Wide Receiver, Running Back, and Tight End Clinic:
These are the most skilled positions in football! They demand a great deal of discipline and correct repetition to perfect the skill and techniques necessary to perform at these positions. During fall practice, a football coach simply does not have the time to perfect these positions. This clinic will aid each participant in developing the ability to perform at the top of his potential when he returns to practice in the fall. Coach Reed’s training techniques guide participants through a skill-learning process where every teaching experience has a purpose. A skilled coaching staff will assist in teaching you the skills and techniques needed to be successful during this training clinic.
”Someone is always training! If you are not, they are!
Who will win when you meet on the field?”

Tony Reed has traveled all over the world, with his father being a career military man. He went to elementary school in Reims, France, and graduated from High School in Tokyo, Japan. His Jr. Varsity Basketball coach was visiting a college in northern Arizona, while on vacation, and brought along some film on Tony. The coach suggested a Junior College in California, and several broken records later he ended up in Boulder, Colorado, playing for the Buffaloes. A team that won the Big Eight title, and went to the Orange Bowl, his Senior Year.
In 1978, Tony became only the second player, in Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs history, to rush for 1,000 yards. In that same year he also led his team in receptions. Amongst the other running backs that rushed for 1,000 or more yards, Tony had the highest yards per carry, at (5.1) Tony has consistently stated, that if he had a choice in how he would be remembered, as a Chief, it would be that he was a complete running back. Not only was he an accomplished runner and receiver, but he was pound for pound one of the best blockers on the team.
