ATLANTA - Football players training year round is nothing new in this day and age. However getting a complete package is.
One of the premier training centers in the country resides right here in Atlanta in a program named I-Dare U.
CEO and founder Glenn Ford, a former UGA defensive back, provides along with his coaches a lot of on the field training through out the year.
It is the off the field training that Ford and many that have been through the program that separates I-Dare U from others.
College SAT/ACT training is giving monthly. College tours for the athletes are provided to educate and explore opportunities down the line. Life skills is an important session according to Ford and that is something that is talked about at every practice session.
