To Potential Campers and Parents:

I am writing to endorse the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  I am a former college football coach and currently the Associate Head Football Coach and Varsity Defensive Coordinator at Mountain Ridge High School.  I believe Coach Huston and his coaching staff do an exceptional job in the development of our youth ages 6 to 17 in the fundamentals of the game of football.  I have personally witnessed this football camp on a few occasions and seen first hand all of the drills the camp has to offer.  The various drills the campers go through add value to their growth as football players.  The tempo of the camp will keep your child engaged no matter what their age while achieving the benefit of overall conditioning without them realizing it.  This is the best youth football camp I have seen in my 25 years of coaching.  I would like to thank Coach Huston and all of the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp coaches for the time and dedication they give in helping our local youth develop their football skills.  More importantly, I appreciate the life lessons and values they are taught that will be displayed not just on the playing field, but more importantly in life.

Anthony Paterno

Dear Parents:

The Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp is such a wonderful experience for kids. Coach Mark puts his heart into everything he does. He coached and trained my son for a few of these camp sessions before we moved. I know my son, Chris, would still be training if he could. He still talks about how great Coach Mark is and how much he learned from him, not only about football things but more importantly, life lessons. Coach Mark makes sure kids have what they need on and off the football field!!!

Sincerely,
Patricia Hopkins

Dear Coach Mark,

My son is 8 years old and has participated in two spring mini-camps at the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  I have been extremely impressed with the activities provided and the quality with which they are conducted.  I like that the participants work on motor skills they can apply to many sports but with a football focus that definitely is building skills for football play.  The coaching staff takes the time to teach the participants proper mechanics and good form, which builds skill and helps prevent injury. There are many coaches on the field and the participants are watched, instructed, and encouraged throughout the course of the camp.  Coach Huston is present at the camps, organizes what is needed, knows the staff and participants, and brings quality of character to everything he does.  Coach Huston provides the bonus of a strong and positive role model.  I have found the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp to be of consistent quality and well worth the investment.  Most importantly, the kids have fun, work hard, and take pride in what they do.

Thanks Coach Huston!!!

Dear Coach Huston,

I just wanted to say, "Thank you" for taking the time to explain your football camp program to me and answer all of my questions.  You and what your football program stand for are a blessing to our Anthem community.  God has given you a vision and you have been obedient to carry it out.  That shows great strength in character to all those around you. What an amazing witnessing tool! 

Thank you again!

Blessings,
Kim Brooks

Dear Coach Mark:

I am writing you this note as a BIG "Thank You" for offering the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  This is the first year that my son, Marcelo, will be playing tackle football.  Since he has no prior training or exposure to this very physical sport, I knew I had to somehow get him prepared.  After searching and considering many factors, I decided to register him in the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp, regardless of the location.  Each Saturday morning we drive 40 – 50 minutes one way to Anthem. 

Here are the key points that I most appreciate about your football camp:  Reasonably priced, schedule flexibility, (non consecutive), time frame, (weekends and early morning), intense and diverse training; however, most importantly the FUN FACTOR!  Marcelo raves about your football camp and is looking forward to this upcoming 2011 football season with confidence that he will be prepared and will excel in his performance.  Your football camp has exceeded our expectations!

Kudos to you and your crew!

May the Lord continue to bless you and yours.

Sincerely,
Maribel  Gonzalez

Coach Mark,

Yesterday was my first time to witness such a football camp; furthermore, it was my son's first time to be involved in football as well as your camp.  I was very impressed with your coaching style and the way your other coaches interacted with my son and the other kids.  I look forward to seeing my son grow and develop his football skills that your camp provides.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Michael Rollin

To potential campers and their parents:

I would like to recommend Coach Mark Huston's Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp to all children, no matter their physical strength level!  My son, Saul, attended the spring mini-camp and was worked harder than he has been in a very long time!  The drills were very challenging, yet fun for him!  This certainly was one of the BEST camp experiences of his life, and he has told all of his friends about it!  What my husband and I found so unique about this football camp was that it was challenging, disciplined, organized, and the parents were encouraged to stay and watch.  The coaches were very positive, motivating, and encouraging, while still pushing the boys to do their very best.  My son was able to compete with himself, by attempting to beat his previous times in the drills that he was participating in; furthermore, he didn't realize the hard work he was doing at the time, and the nice thing about it was that he improved on all his times each week.

All of the coaches were dedicated and numerous as this camp uses adult coaches that know about the importance of coordination, speed, discipline, and motivation.  The Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp also has former campers who are now current Boulder Creek football players coaching at the camp.  This is awesome because my son received encouragement from the B.C. players in a different way.  The B.C. players have already gone through what my boy will experience over the next two years!  This truly has been a very positive event in Saul's life and he is looking forward to the summer camp! I strongly recommend this football camp to others!

Thanks Coach Mark!

Sincerely,
Kim Jimenez

I enthusiastically recommend Mark Huston’s Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  In building a middle school tackle football program here at Anthem Prep, I felt it was imperative that our players receive quality instruction over the summer.  After looking at all the options, I decided to put our players in the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  I was thrilled with the organization, coaches, and excellence of training our players received.  I feel extremely fortunate to have one of the top youth football camps in the state right here in Anthem, led by a great man of character and integrity.

Dear Parents,

I have found the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp to be a very positive influence in my son's life.  Not only does it teach coordination, motor planning, and specific football skills, but it teaches and trains these kids to be what they are meant to be - respectful, caring, focused, and responsible people.  Coach Huston teaches teamwork and guides each child to strive to be the absolute best they can be.  The experience is unmatchable!  I would highly recommend this camp to any child that has even the slightest interest in football.  

Thank you Coach Huston for all you do!

Sincerely,
Wende Bartolomeo

Coach Mark,

Just a note to let you know how much I appreciate your Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  You have been coaching my son, Brandon, for about 9 years and now my little 6 year old son, Cameron, is starting to show an interest in the sport.  I think your camp is truly AMAZING, but more importantly, I know that you truly care about these kids and want what is best for them.  You not only teach skills needed on the field, but also off the field.  Your example shows the kids that hard work, a good attitude, and always doing your best will always pay off.  I know that Brandon has a lot of respect for you and that doesn’t come easy for him.  I want to say “Thank You” for all that you do for all of the boys and girls that have the honor to have you as their coach.  I know that you will leave a lasting impression on them and that years from now they will thank you for it.  I hope that my Cameron continues with football and that he has a chance to learn some valuable life lessons from you too.

Thank you.

Dear Coach Mark,

Thank you very much for your commitment and dedication to all of us young athletes who have participated in your camp.  The last six years I have had the pleasure of learning the game of football from you and your excellent coaching staff has been an experience that I will never forget.  I have benefited tremendously in my athletic abilities and respect and contribution to my Anthem community. Your tireless effort and ability to develop our athleticism and to gain our respect is a tremendous benefit to our success.  

I am forever in your debt for all your time and assistance in developing my football skills and also helping me become the best student athlete I can be.

Thank you.

Dear Prospective Campers and Parents,

There is no opportunity within the Anthem community that develops athletic ability to the level that Coach Mark Huston and his Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp provides.  Coach Mark’s influence in building truly great athletes as well as superior football players is obvious from the first whistle to the final huddle.

My son has participated in the camp for six years, and each camp is a day my son looks forward to with joy and enthusiasm.  Coach Mark genuinely cares about each participant, and takes great pride in building their confidence, as well as their athletic ability.

Coach Mark’s knowledge of the game of football and his dedication to each child is truly remarkable and goes well beyond my expectations as a parent.

Coach Mark’s influence is easily recognized in his student athlete’s abilities, work ethic, competitiveness, and most importantly, their expressions of respect for others.

Thankfully Yours,
Gregg Thomas

Coach Mark,

Thank you, thank you!


I have never purchased or even had an energy drink because I do not believe in them; however, that being said, I have never discussed my feelings with my son, Grant, regarding consumption of these beverages.  For all I know, he may have tried them at school.  I will show him this video and share my thoughts with him on this subject.

Sincerely with Gratitude,
Monica Wilson

Dear Coach Mark,

We are very impressed by you and your Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp. I know our family will certainly help spread the word.

Thank you for all you do for our children.  It's truly wonderful.

We're looking forward to the rest of the mini-camp.

As a mother with a 9 year old daughter who loves to play football, Coach Mark Huston's Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp is AMAZING!!! My daughter, Anna, was the only girl at the camp; yet, every coach treated her with the same intensity as the boys.  The discipline and skills Coach Mark teaches does not only apply to the game of football, but to life in general.  Teaching kids to fully commit to everything they do is a critical life lesson.  Having passionate coaches who love football as much as they love working with kids is the perfect combination for Let It Fly!  Any mom would be worried about sending her baby girl out there by herself, but the coaching staff was AWESOME and she loved every minute of the camp and is already excited to participate again.

Hats off to Coach Mark for creating this FANTASTIC program where the lessons, skills, discipline, and positive attitude will last far longer than the football season!

It is always inspiring when you have the opportunity to work with someone who is passionate about the work they do.  Coach Mark Huston is that guy!  He not only teaches kids to be their best, but he also lives by that same motto.  It has been a pleasure working with Coach Mark, and I wish him nothing but the best in his pursuit of building the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp into the premier youth circuit training football camp in the north valley.

This is a GREAT football camp!!!  I love Coach Mark. He is GREAT with kids of all age levels and skill level.

My son, Hunter, has attended the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp for the last four years during the summer. Hunter has learned so much from Coach Mark and his assistant coaches.

We will be signing Hunter up to attend the fall mini-camp.

Coach Mark,

I wanted to provide feedback on your Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp that we attended recently.  First, I would like to congratulate you for establishing an EXCELLENT football camp for our youth!  I thought the camp was very well run and the stations were uniquely focused on the core skills required in the game of football.  Secondly, I was happy to see that the kids were continually working on different skills and there was no standing around.  I was quite surprised the four hours went as fast as they did.  My son and his fellow football teammates finished the camp and were not wiped out; furthermore, they felt a real sense of accomplishment.  Lastly, I will highly recommend your camp to all of my returning players and any parent looking to help his/her son get ahead in an increasingly competitive sport! See you next summer!

Regards,

Coach Mark,

Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate your Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  Dylan has a long way to go, but we know he has gained some valuable footwork skills to help give him a leg up on this season as well as some endurance for the heat.  Thanks for your dedication to this camp.  Based on what we have seen- we are highly recommending this football camp next year to many of our football parent friends.  Thanks again for offering such a great skills based camp every Saturday during the summer.  We will definitely be back next summer. 


With sincere appreciation,

Coach Mark,

Our son, Marlin (11), enrolled in your Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp in preparation for his first year of playing football.  Both my husband and I have been tremendously impressed with your coaching and the type of drills you teach the boys.  As a former football player, my husband can appreciate the amount of work the boys are putting in each Saturday.  Marlin has experienced a remarkable improvement from the first Saturday to the sixth Saturday, and has gained an excellent base knowledge of the skills necessary to play middle school football.  Your personal commitment to each and every boy is amazing.  You provide the perfect mix of encouragement, inspiration, toughness, and strictness.   Marlin has enjoyed the challenge you have presented to him, and is always up and ready to go on Saturday morning for football!

Thank you for all the work you and the other coaches put into the camp, we will definitely be back next summer!

Regards,
Tracy Begalke

Coach Mark,

I am so impressed with your Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  I think you do a wonderful job with the boys.  My son Brett, has never played football or any team sport, so I was a little nervous as to how he might do; however, he LOVED your camp!!!  He sees his own improvement both physically and mentally.

Keep up the good work!!!

My son, Omar Rosado, has been participating in the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp for the past five years.  My husband and I really enjoy watching him improve his football skills.  Both his father and I are very involved with the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp. My husband, Victor, coaches the circuit stations, and I assist by checking in and registering the boys each week.  We are both privileged and blessed that Coach Mark Huston has allowed us the opportunity to be a part of an excellent, well organized, and highly effective youth football camp.  I highly recommend the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp to all kids who want to improve their athletic skills.

Thank you Coach Mark for putting on an AWESOME camp for the Anthem youth football programs!!!


My daughter Bianca wanted to add one more thing, "Coach Mark, you ROCK!!!"

Attention parents: As a former football coach at both the high school varsity as well as youth football level for many many years, I wish the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp was around then so that the youth could have taken advantage of the outstanding football drills that are being offered now.  I highly recommend that all youth football players  take advantage and enjoy the rewards they will receive from attending the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp in Anthem, Arizona.

Parents and athletes,

Over the last three summers, I have had the privilege of assisting Coach Mark Huston with his Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp.  I bring the equipment and gear, and make sure all the boys have plenty of water during camp.  What I enjoy the most is watching all the campers improve their football skills each and every week.  The Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp consists of twenty-four circuit stations set up to grow each player physically, mentally, and spiritually.  The football camp is intense and rigorous during the four hour Saturday sessions, becoming even harder as it gets hotter. If you think it's easy, give it a try for an hour.  My point is, each Saturday, I watch these young men working very hard at this football camp and having a great time doing it!  The payoff is the players are well conditioned for football, or any other sport they may play.  Each and every August, the youth football coaches can see the difference between the players that have worked out at the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp and the players that have not.  I love helping coach the kids, and I'm blessed that Coach Mark allows me to be a part of his coaching staff; furthermore, thank you parents for allowing me the opportunity to work with your children as they improve their overall football skills.

Coach Mark Huston, and his  Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp offers an excellent summer season program for youth football participants.  I have especially appreciated the time that Coach Mark places on developing the younger and newer players.  I frequently recommend his football camp when speaking with people around town.  My ten year old son Trey has participated in the camp for the last three years and has benefited a great deal from the experience.

Mark Huston's Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp is the "Real Deal." My son Grant, attended this camp the last three years and I can say it has contributed immensely to where he is today in his football career.  My son starts on the Boulder Creek High School football team.  I have also had the privilege of coaching at this camp having been a former football player myself.

Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp
will teach your son footwork and handwork technique that is essential for any football player;  however, just as important, this non-tackle youth football camp will instill the dedication and discipline that is required to excel not only as a football player, but also a student, and most importantly, as a good person.

Attention parents:

I just took my son to the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp today, and the camp was absolutely AWESOME!!! If your son is between the ages of 7-13 and is interested in playing football in the fall, or he simply wants to attend a GREAT skills camp, I would highly recommend the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp!!! It's a non-tackle circuit style football camp.  The coaches are very knowledgeable, and they have some of the local high school players, all of whom are former Let It Fly campers helping out.

Mark Huston and his Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp offer a highly effective gateway to mastering the necessary physical elements that are essential to success in the sport of football. Success in any sport requires dedication to the details, the "mechanics" that lead to fundamental soundness.  Let It Fly does that...and more!  Successful coaches identify players who have the heart, or as Coach Mark Huston calls it, the "want to," and desire to be EXCELLENT, and then steadily develop the skills and confidence needed to succeed at the highest level.

As a staff member of the Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp, I have seen first hand the effectiveness of this approach to mastering fundamental football drills and skills.  The motto of this football camp says it all:

"I will strive for PERFECTION in everything I do, knowing it will never be attained; however, in the pursuit of PERFECTION, I will grasp EXCELLENCE in the process."

The world would be a better place if we all did that!

Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp will challenge your child, get them in shape, and build character!  I highly recommend Let It Fly Football Drills and Skills Camp!

I wanted to let you know how GREAT I thought your football camp was for JD [aka Duncan]. The quality of the instruction and how you handle the boys is FANTASTIC!  So I’m always looking for experiences for him that will provide strong male role models. He loves football, and that’s just something ‘ole mom isn’t that good at teaching.

So thank you for providing an opportunity for Duncan to learn sports and sportsmanship.

Coach Mark,

What an AWESOME mentor, teacher, and yes, at times, tough coach you are; however, this is EXACTLY what my son Bryce needs!  It was funny, when I picked him up from school on Friday, I said, "Bryce, don't forget you have Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp tomorrow."  He looked at me and said, "Mom, can I do it next Saturday instead?"..."No Bryce, we are going tomorrow."(which was his 2nd time)....."But Mom, I'm tired..." and well, you know, the normal excuses kids give you..He just has never ever worked out like that in his life, so it is very new to him.  But after each practice, he says he's so glad he went.  He can feel himself getting stronger and better and it makes him feel good.  I thank you so much for being a coach that cares about how these boys really learn.  The eye/hand, footwork and overall coordination is so important.  He never imagined in his wildest dreams that camp would be so tough, long and tiring.  He knows it is good for him and it is preparing him for playing in the future. 

Thank you again for all the support and encouragement you have given to Bryce.

Sincerely,
Becky Smith
