I have known Jon Osterhout since 1997. Since that first encounter, Jon has played a pivotal role in my personal and professional life. Back in college Jon was my mentor on how to conduct myself on and off the field. As a player and fellow teammate Jon set the example on how to set and achieve goals threw hard work, determination and the drive to succeed. I can honestly say that I would not have been able to achieve my dream to play in the National Football League if it weren't for the help of Jon. Seeing Jon coach, I know he has the ability to break down the fundamentals of an action that make it easy for a person to understand and apply with success and the character that draws people towards him. He doesn't just teach his players the fundamentals that help on the field but he teaches and sets an example of what it takes to be a good man or women off the field. I only hope that my children will have a person in their life that can be a friend to them like Jon has been to me.
