“that relentless focus on fundamentals is what separates Whitfield from other private tutors. He has no problem deferring to coaches who can teach his clients more about schemes and coverages — Whitfield just wants to teach them how to throw. “A lot of young guys only think about schemes and never teach fundamentals,” Arians says. “If you’re seen as a schematic genius, that’s how you move up in this profession. George is different.”
- Bruce Arians, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator
“George has concocted a one-in-a-million, once-in-a-lifetime tour for young QBs to be discovered. Besides unbelievable exposure in front of the best coaches in college football, this trip was even more of a rite of passage for our son traveling by himself for the first time and coming of age.” - Tim Wrisley
What did you pick up while working with George Whitfield this summer?
“My time with George Whitfield in San Diego was extremely beneficial I believe. I was out there with Logan Thomas, who as most everyone knows is an absolute freak when it comes to the quarterback position. He’s a guy who wears XXL shirts and is 6-6, 250 pounds, and can sling the football like nobody’s business. To be with Coach Whitfield and him a couple of other guys, in great weather, working with him…he really knows what he’s talking about. I believe he’s one of the best quarterback coaches in the country for a reason. Even after my time out there and being back in Texas and trying to talk to him every week. He has a busy schedule, and so do I, but I try to keep in touch with him and he always seems to drop a piece of knowledge every time I talk to him on the phone. He’s a great guy and I’m very thankful to have him in my life.” - Johnny Manziel
