Written By: hawkcoach

Coach Harrison played organized football in Junior High and High School, and while he was never a standout player, he developed a strong passion for the game. He pursued this passion as a fan of high school, college and professional football until his oldest son, Blake, reached the 2nd grade and asked to play youth football. Coach Harrison volunteered to help out as an assistant coach. He soon discovered he had an aptitude and love for coaching. As the season ended he decided to volunteer to become a head coach the following season.

He was a head football coach in the Rogers, Minnesota, youth football league for the next several years finishing with a combined record of 22-8-0.

After relocating to South Florda in late 2010, Coach Harrison accepted the Head Middle School Coach position at Pine Crest School in Boca Raton.  His first year at Pine Crest he led his team to a 7-1 record and the team’s first division championship.  The 2012 team showed continued success with a 7-0 record and the school’s first Tri-County League Championship.

In 2013, Coach Harrison moved up to Head Coach of the Pine Crest JV team and also served as the QB Coach for the Varsity team.

Coach Harrison is a C2 Certified QB Coach with the National Football Academies and is also a private QB Coach for 365 Elite Training in Lake Worth, Florida.
