defensiveAnthony Newman’s Defensive Football Academy is where players go when they want to take their game to the next level. Whether you are just starting out in youth football, or wanting to get noticed in high school by college coaches, we have the right program for you!  We develop football players at all levels, including youth, high school and college. Oregon’s first defensive football academy offers the tools and techniques to accommodate the young athlete’s pursuit of going to the next level. Our academy is geared strictly to the defensive side of the ball, DL, LB’s and DB’s, which will help to develop a strong foundation of the fundamentals, a complete understanding of the game and enhance their physical skills. During my 12 year playing career in the NFL, I’ve had the great fortune of been coached by some of the best minds in the business, such as Jon Gruden, Mike Ditka, Jim Mora Jr, Jeff Fisher, Jack Del Rio, Rod Perry, Nolan Cromwell, Jim Haslett, Willie Shaw, John Robinson, Willie Brown, Chuck Knox, and Monty Kiffin just to name a few. They have all been extremely instrumental in the development of my football knowledge and career - now I have the pleasure of passing those skills onto you.
