NFA quarterbacks coach Dub Maddox has quickly established himself as a premier trainer, having worked on the staff of national high school powerhouse Jenks (OK) since 2005. In the 2006 and 2007 seasons, he was Mark Ginther’s QB coach, who led the Trojans to Class 6A state titles before focusing on baseball at Oklahoma State.
Consistently nationally ranked and boasting top talent at the Div. I college level, Jenks continues benefitting from Maddox’s attention to detail when it comes to the mechanics of throwing. He also works extensively with NFA founder Darin Slack, a former record-holder at the University of Central Florida. Together, Maddox and Slack conduct quarterback camps for some of the country’s top prep athletes.
Some of these camps take place directly on the home field of Jenks High School, which houses excellent facilities and a three-story weight room and training center overlooking the stadium. The setting is ideal for the young men the camps attract, and the drills and exercises distinctly aim to greatly improve their physical skills during the offseason.
A native of Skiatook, OK, Maddox attended Northeastern State in Tahlequah. He began his post-playing career in 2000 with Jenks league rivals Broken Arrow as a wide receivers coach. While there, Maddox saw the Tigers reach the playoffs in three straight seasons and notably coached Jason Ray, who later played at the University of Missouri.
After a short stint as Palmetto Ridge’s (FL) offensive coordinator, Maddox began at Jenks in 2005 as a wide receivers coach. The following season, he made the move to his current position as a quarterback specialist and has since won the aforementioned pair of state titles with the Trojans.
With the 2012 season still two months away, Maddox continues training his own players as well as quarterbacks in the NFA system. For in-depth analysis of the throwing motion and how to best utilize it, Maddox is a great coaching option and should be sought out.
