Former Brigham Young Cougars wide receiver Scott Collie became a pioneer in the field of youth football player development last year. His initial pioneering efforts have been so successful that Collie's program ReceiverTech has expanded nationwide in just its second year.
Scott Collie played football for BYU from 1978-82 during the glory days of the Cougars' revolutionizing passing attack. He was one of the team's leading receivers as a junior and senior. Following his college career, he played in the NFL, USFL, and Canadian Football League.
After his playing career ended, Collie passed on his knowledge of the wide receiver position to his three sons. All three have gone on to play college football. His two sons who have completed college ball have played in the NFL, with Austin having an integral role in the Indianapolis Colts' run to Super Bowl XLIV.
Recognizing that training programs for young wide receivers was lacking, Collie organized his expertise of the wide receiver position and established ReceiverTech in 2012. ReceiverTech has been endorsed by two Super Bowl champion quarterbacks, and two NFL coaches who have taken three teams to the Super Bowl.
The quality training provided by ReceiverTech has allowed the program to create a partnership with top high school quarterback camp: the Elite 11.
BLUE COUGAR FOOTBALL received the following message from Scott Collie about ReceiverTech's nationwide training schedule for 2013.
After a successful inaugural 2012 competition season, ReceiverTech’s RT25 WR competition is back and expanding to 9 regions across the United States. While most competitions for the elite athletes focus around the QB position or 7-on-7 teams, there was nothing in the country that allowed the WR position to compete in a series of events exhibiting the athletes' speed, route running, agility and pass receiving abilities.
In 2012, ReceiverTech established RT25 WR competitions. The competitions combined with the focus on instruction from the RT staff made the events an instant success with parents, players, and coaches. With events in, Utah, Northern California, and Southern California, the top performers from each region showed their skills at the Elite 11 competition in Southern California. The structure of the event is unique and has proven its success.
The ReceiverTech 2013 schedule is set and registration is available at www.receivertech.com.
