**  “Coach, wanted to thank you for the camp yesterday, my son Aaron said he really enjoyed it and appreciated all the instruction and reps he received. Additionally, it was his first real exposure to college coaching and schools, so hoping it serves as springboard to his aspirations to play at the next level. It also works well as a preparation lead-in to his high school football summer program which will begin today.”  Thanks again, Steven Kurtzman – Father of Aaron Kurtzman

**  “Hi Coach. Just wanted to let you know Austin committed to Widener University. Austin will be playing Football and studying PreMed. It has been a great run with you at your Let’em Play Football Academies. Austin started when he was in the 8th grade and continued through his senior year all while attending Edison High School. It’s only because of your love for the players and commitment to excellence why children like my son, Austin Rivera, benefit and get successfully recruited by quality colleges. The Discover Camps are top notch and allow the student athletes to experience the college recruitment process. It is a privilege and honor to now become an Alumni of Let’em Play Football Academies! God Bless You Coach Dave!!” – Henry Rivera – Father of Austin Rivera – Edison High School

** Hi Dave, I wanted to thank you for providing the boys with such a great football camp! I know Jake is having a great time and loves the drills and the structure for learning you’ve provided. Don Lavigne – Father of Jake Lavigne – North Hunterdon Regional HS

**  Hello Coach LePoidevin, I hope all is well. Not sure, if you remember me but I attended a number of your camps from the years 2013-2015. I learned so much from the coaches at Let’em Play, and would not trade the experience for anything. I have just completed my first semester as well as my freshman season at East Stroudsburg University. With the help of Coach Trentacosti both in his teaching and help in the recruiting process I was given this opportunity. I plan on going into coaching and I was just wondering if I would be able to come and possibly assist in the off season camps while I am on winter break. I think it would be great coaching experience as well as the opportunity to inform kids on what a current college player has experienced through his first season. Thank you in advance. – Jared Fraraccio – former Let’em Play member and current student athlete at East Stroudsburg U.

**  Hi Coach, “Your student made the News Channel 12 highlight real for a tackle he made while chasing someone down from behind.  It ended up being a game saver as they never scored on that possession.  He ended up recording 7 tackles in the win.”  “Your program is one of the reasons he is becoming a better player, but more importantly a better human being.” – Mr. Rivera – father of Austin Rivera – Edison HS

**  Hi Coach, “thanks for always being a good role model for Austin.  I know your camps have reinforced character & work ethic which is something far greater than athletic ability.  Austin received an invitation to visit Gettysburg today as a result of your commitment to our children.  Thanks for the vision & risk to start such well organized football academy for our young men.”  Sincerely, Henry P. Rivera – father of Austin Rivera – Edison HS

**  Hi Coach Dave, “I just wanted to share something cool with you….. Nick’s HS football team has been running a mini-camp this week and yesterday I asked him if he thought attending the Let em Play training academies have help him in anyway…..he said he is so much faster and his foot work is better than it ever was! Thank you again for running a wonderful program, I can’t wait to get him signed up again after this years season!” – Janine Kay – mother of Nick Kay, Spotswood HS

** Good Morning Coach LePoidevin, “my name is Rob Hamm. I am Jake Hamm’s father, who attended the camp last Sunday. He was working with the RB group and he did some DL work as well as Long Snapping. I was not able to attend, but my wife spoke very highly of the experience. We have attended many camps over the past few years, and according to Jake and my wife, they had a great experience. Thanks for doing these kinds of camps for the players. A great way to get exposure for those players who may be great talents and athletes, but not quite the type for a FBS school. Again, thanks, and if you need more information about Jake, please let me know.” Rob Hamm – father of Jake Hamm – Episcopal High School

**  Hello Coach- “I wanted to tell you what a great program you had running yesterday, it really was impressive!” Michelle – Mother of Alec Pezuti – Watchung Hills HS

**  “Hi Dave , my son Joseph Balestrieri has attended the winter and spring academies and would also like to attend the summer sessions! You and your coaches run a great program!

**  Dave – “I have recommend you to some friends…  I am so please with not only the instruction, but with you and the way you personally run the Program. Thank you so much!

**  Having been a football trainer and doctor at HS and college levels since the 80’s I have seen many camps come and go and can confidently say that this is ahead of its time. The talent of the coaches on the field and individual hands on attention even for the young kids impressed me beyond words. Coach Dave is truly caring and invested into this program and we would recommend it highly to anyone wishing to bring their game to a new level. – Dr. Renee Foster

**  Hi Dave,  I just wanted to write to you to let you know how much Matt’s enjoying working with Coach Nick.  I spoke with Coach last Sunday after the session was over and he told me that he already sees improvement in Matt’s kicking in just the 4 weeks that he’s been working with him.  So glad it worked out that you were able to get him to work with Matt.  Do you know if Coach Nick will be at the Spring academies as well?  Sounds like it might be a different format, but I know Matt would love to continue working with him.  We’ll see you on Sunday.  Take care, Liz – Liz Semon – mother of Matt Semon – Middlesex HS

**  Currently we are driving about 45 minutes to a hour on Sundays and I have no problem continuing to do this since you are doing an amazing job with my children.  Thank you for doing such an amazing job with all these boys!  Very happy I came across Let’em Play and looking forward to the future with my boys and Let’em Play.  Thank you once again for your continuous help.  Have a great week! – Eloisa Valdes – mother of youth student athletes at Let’em Play

**  Hi Dave, my son Joseph is attending the Metuchen academy.  He just started playing football this year, his freshman year in high school and definitely needed some help!  After just three weeks he has learned a lot and loves the coaches and academy!  The academy is very well run, very informative and your coaches are excellent!  I would highly recommend your academy to any football player looking to improve! – Mr. Balestrieri – father of Joe Balestrieri – JFK Memorial HS

**  Dave, Thanks for a great first day of training. My son Jay had an amazing experience learning from the kicking coach. Of course, after an hour and a half of kicking, his leg can barely move… but that’s a good thing.  Thanks for putting this great program together.”  Andrew Kraft – father of Jay Kraft – Hillsborough HS

**  Thank you Dave!  My husband and Kyle both mentioned how wonderful the Discover Camp was.  We will see you at the Academy.  Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. – Allison Majkowski – mother of Kyle Majkowski – Immaculata HS

**  Dear Coach Dave, I just wanted to thank you again for a very well run Discover Football program.  My son Matt was thoroughly exhausted, but in a good way!  The college coaches were able to provide him with a lot of good information and advice.  Even though he’s only a sophomore, it was reassuring to know that he is on track if he plans on playing football at the college level.  Again, thanks for a great experience.  Matt is very motivated and is looking forward towards bringing that mentality to his team next season.  Sincerely, Lisa Alesandro – Proud Mother of Matt Alesandro – Bridgewater Raritan HS

**  I just wanted to thank you for the training you provided to my two sons, Brennan and Shane.  Brennan trained with you and your staff in Branchburg when he first entered high school.  Shane trained initially as a lineman but switched to RB and MLB in his sophomore year.  He recently attended the Let’em Play academy in preparation for his senior season.  Due to the skills they learned at your academy, they finished the season with the following achievements…  Brennan – led the team in receptions (31), receiving yards (631), receiving TDs (8), and interceptions (6).  Shane – rushed for 571 yards with an avg of 5.5 yards/carry and led the team in rushing TDs (13).  He finished the season 2nd in tackles (79).  They finished their high school career making it to the Central Group 1 State Championship last weekend vs Shore Regional.  Unfortunately, the team came up short but the boys have some great memories.  They were selected to their respective All Conference team.  Brennan (1st team) and Shane (2nd)  Thanks again Dave to you and your staff.  Proud Dad – father of Brennan and Shane Carey – South Hunterdon Regional HS

**  Dave, like always thank you for all your help and for having such a incredible program that has molded and trained John throughout the years!” – Cindy Apicalla – mother of John Apicella – Jonathan Dayton Regional HS

**  “Dave, I want to thank you and Let’em Play for the outstanding program you provide and give you an update on Zachary Atherton.  Zach never played football before 7th Grade; we met you with the Hunterdon Huskies.  From there Zach played on the North Hunterdon Junior Lions for 7th grade and then attended your Training Camps during the off-season.  In 8th grade, Zach had a great year playing with the North Hunterdon Jr Lions, on both the Jr. Skylands and Patriot divisions.  He learned from your coaches during the off-season, and played Offensive Line, Defensive Line, and progressed this year to playing at Center, Tight End, Special Teams, and Linebacker.  In just 2 short years, Zach is steadily improving his play in large part due to your influence and his association with Let’em Play.  His highlight of the year was in a Patriot division game against arch rival Voorhees Vikings on October 25.  His two second-half “pick-six” TD’s on Defense while playing Linebacker propelled his Jr.Lions to a 12-0 victory.  For Zach, this was a Junior player’s dream come true, in making two plays to score 12 points and help his team beat Voorhees.  He continues to improve and Zach is looking forward to your off-season training camps this year as he enters High School Freshman level football.  Without hesitation, I would say that Zach wouldn’t be prepared to play football at the high school level without Let’em Play and his experience with the Jr Lions.”  Thanks, Scott Atherton

**  “Hi Dave, I wanted to text you a sincere thank you. The success that TJ and Johnny are having this year at Dayton is largely due to you and your academy! I’ll see you at the prospect camp in December!” Ted Kanarek – father of TJ Kanarek – Jonathan Dayton Regional HS.

**  “Officially, I know your not representing Ian in this process, however…  Unofficially, personally, you are.  You can, to whom ever you wish, as part of your business model, state that Ian and this process we are in, is part of what “Let’em Play” does.  I will certainly express that to anyone that would ask.  Your guidance, introductions and support has been critical to how I have been conducting this process.  Your advise is wanted and needed.  Just saying…  Doc.”

**  “Coach Lep, the training over the past two winter/springs at the Let’Em Play Camps sure have helped Ryan hone in his game and develop his technique.  Thanks again, Nick Smolin” – father of Ryan Smolin, Spotswood HS

**  “Coach LePoidevin, my son Jake Peters attended your camp this past summer at Miseracordia in Wilkes-Barre, PA and learned a lot from you and had a wonderful experience. Thank you for your help and dedication to all the boys you help!! Keep up the good work!!”  Staci Peters – Mother of Jacob Peters – Hanover Area HS

**  “Hi Coach Dave, I was just telling Tyler that he should e-mail you his stats.  He said they were already posted on your site so thanks to who ever took the time to do that.  He has a game day visit scheduled at Holy Cross and one at Stonehill College this weekend, not sure where he will end up but we owe you and your staff a thank you.  The work he has put in with your team of coaches has payed big dividends throughout his high school career.  I would also like to single out Coach Meert who is so passionate about football and generous with his time.  He made a difference in Tylers approach to football and his confidence in his abilities.  It sure makes a difference to a kid when someone believes in him and your team of coaches did that for Tyler. Thank you!”  Jim Frazee – Father of Tyler Frazee – South Hunterdon Regional HS

**  “Hi Dave, my son Alex has enjoyed the clinics thus far and is looking forward to being there this winter. He was also very excited to shake hands with real NFL players (as he put it, lol) Thank you for providing a tool for the kids to learn their skills and enjoy the game. Keep up the great work.”  Dave Grantham – Father of Alex Grantham

**  “Hey coach, its the start of my season today and I feel that I am ready because of all the hard work I put in which included your camp.  Thank you for doing what you do and keep it up!  I really enjoyed competing at your camp and have really started to see the results.  Its time for me to go to work, thanks again!”   Sincerely, Tyler Shay – Mid Valley High School

**  “Dave, thank you for this program.  You and your staff do great things.  My son really enjoyed it, and I hope you are still doing this ten years from now so my youngest can be a part of it.  Keep up the great work and I will have Tyler let you know where he decides to play his college ball. Thank you and God Bless!”

**  “Hi Coach, I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time Matthew had at camp, although it started with an accidental bloody nose, he cannot stop talking about camp. And what’s even more adorable is, he thinks you guys are there all of the time. I did my best to explain to him that it’s camp and it only happens once a year, that was a little bit of a sad face but then he said “I can’t wait for next year!!”  As his mother I just want to say thank you so much for putting in all the hard work and time. This was a great few days for Matthew and I, we would love to do it again next year.  Also thank you to all the coaches and staff that came out and worked with these kids. They did a spectacular job and made it look easy.  I really can’t express enough how much we appreciate what Let Em Play did and does for these kids.  Great job and we hope to see you next year!”  Shannon, Matthew Curry’s mom

**  “Just wanted to thank you for doing the football camp.  My son Andrew Slusark had a great time.  He is very proud of the Offensive lineman hammer he earned.   He has it on his shelf with some of his other awards.  You have a great staff.  Good luck in the upcoming season.” – John Slusark – Father of Andrew

**  “Afternoon Coach, first, I’d like to say how much my son, Jacob, enjoyed your camp – both the winter camp and the one this past week. He learned so much, and had a great time doing it. Also, as a parent I’d like to express how motivational you, and your staff is. Speaking to the kids about grades and family was amazing. Our family is huge on family first, and grades are more important than sports. You have a class act organization, and I can only hope one day Jacob is involved in an organization like yours.” – Nicole Vigorito – Mother of Jacob Vigorito

**  “Thank you Coach Dave for organizing such a wonderful event.  The instruction I received from both the OL and DL coaches was tremendous.  This is something I will use in my football training.”  Regards, Tylon Johnson – Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School – Ontario, Canada

**  Hey coach, just wanted to thank you again for the great opportunity to help us get some looks from colleges.  You and your staff were great and I really had a good time (my hair still hasn’t moved lol ) .  I plan on taking you up on the offer of using you as a reference to other college coaches, and my Dad and little brother said thank you again for the free shirts.  Thanks again coach, Tyler Shay – Mid Valley HS

**  Coach Lep, Ryan’s weekends will be filled with hard work, getting stronger and visiting and playing at many Colleges and Universities.  He has excelled in his studies and honed his football skills. The Let’em Play Camps he attended through the winter and spring were instrumental in his growth as a quarterback. We cannot thank you enough for what you afforded the kids.  Ryan is also focusing on his Spotswood team and the upcoming season.  He is looking forward to his senior year at Spotswood High School.  I hope to catch you at one of these games.  See you soon.  Sincerely, Nick Smolin – Father of Ryan Smolin – Spotswood High School

**  Coach Lep, first, I wanted to thank you for having me on Sunday. Your camp is always one of my favorites because of the hard working kids and coaches that attend. Not only do I get a valuable day of recruiting, but it reminds me of why I started playing football and why I have chosen to make that my career, because it is fun! Your camp is always great because of the positive interactions I have with the kids and fellow coaches, 7v7 especially haha This year, I am extending my recruiting area further north so I can begin to hit a lot more of the schools that attend your camp.  Thanks Again, Keith Bruno – Defensive Backs Coach, Academic Coordinator – McDaniel College

**  Hi Coach, just wanted to thank you for the camp yesterday. I had a great time meeting everyone. I was wondering, you mentioned there is another camp coming up. Will it be the same
schools? I am seriously thinking about attending. I had so much fun. Let me know your thoughts.  Thank you, Anthony Scher – Ramapo – Long snapper

**  “Hi Coach, Tyler enjoyed the camp.  Thank you for hosting it!  Mr. Allgood’s presentation, your organization and enthusiasm, and the college recruitment fair coupled with the skill/position camp are all excellent.  What you have available for the price is unbeatable.  Tyler and I have attended perspective recruitment camps and your camp is by far the best.  Being a teacher and middle school athletic director for the past twenty years, it is evident to me that you have a passion for what you due and your message is one the student-athletes need to hear and take to heart.  Thank you!  –Scott & Tyler Fischer

**  “Good morning Coach.  Let me start by saying that you and your staff did a great job yesterday.  The camp was very well run and was a great experience not only for me, but for Jared.  Being exposed to college coaches for the first time I think will help him improve not only as a player but as a student.  I really enjoyed your presentation and Lonnie Allgood’s presentation. It definitely set the tone and had some great messages for the student-athletes.  Also, if you are looking to expand and run a Discover Camp in North Jersey, we can talk about maybe doing it at Memorial.  Thanks for everything you have done for Jared this off-season.
Talk to you soon…..  John Fraraccio” – Father of Jared Fraraccio – Montgomery HS

**  “Coach, on behalf of my son and myself, I wanted to thank you for yesterdays camp. It was a terrific experience and there was plenty of valuable take-aways for Peter. Your staff and the coaches who did show up did an excellent job of representing.  Thanks again, Peter Terranova” – Father of Peter Terranova – Raritan HS

**  “I want to thank you Coach Dave for the outstanding job you have done putting together the Let’em Play football Academy.  My son Austin Rivera, freshman at Edison High School, came into your Academy on January 2014. His technical skills at the QB position were lacking.  The professionalism your coaching staff demonstrates and commitment to the players is truly evident in the vast improvement my son Austin has achieved in your football academy.  Austin is dedicating himself to participate in your camps through June 2014.  Thank you for sharing the passion you have as a football coach by putting together a well needed program in the Central Jersey area.”  Sincerely, Henry P. Rivera

**  “Good Coaches who teach kids the right way to do things on and off the field!” – Coach Gerry Gallagher

**  “My son Jake Jenkinson just got done in your four week program at your BSC. What a great job all you coaches do in building confidence in these young men . The knowledge he came away with is overwhelming . I know you it has to be over at that location because of new construction. Myself and other parents would love it to continue Somerset and Hunterdon Counties have a lot of athletes that would come until the football season started.  Thx again great job to all” – Charles Jenkinson

**  “I have really enjoyed my coaching this winter.  I have seen vast improvement in the players and a great bond among the coaches.  This should be the source of great pride to you!
It is a testament to your vision and persistence.  As we always preached at Hunterdon Central, “Good things happen to good people.”  You and your program are proof of that!”  Sincerely, Jim Meert – former Head Football Coach – Hunterdon Central Regional High School

**  Dave, thanks for making Jonathan’s first experience at a football camp a great one. He had a great time learning and he can’t wait to do it again. Your the best!  Thanks, Nick & Cheryl Riga

**  Hey Coach, Sunday was great…..the amount of Reps Jared got was awesome….I am sure you know, but the line coaches are great.  I would like to sign Jared up for the Big Man Challenge.  See you on Sunday….  John Fraraccio – Father of Jared Jraraccio – JP Stevens HS

**  Coach LeP, my son was thrilled to start learning the Center position … GREAT JOB. Feedback from him is:  All the work he put in to learn how to block as a lineman in the first academy, is now helping him to advance and learn the center position … he can now focus on the skills needed to hike the ball while knowing what to do to block the nose guard.  It’s not an easy position, but an important one.  I heard one of your coaches say, the center is the only position that touches the ball on every play.  I don’t want to forget that the Linebacker Coach this past week was outstanding as well; teaching how to tackle and wrap your arms around the ball carrier.  Give us more!  We want summer too!  Scott Atherton – Father of Zach Atherton – Hunterdon Huskies

**  Coach LePoidevin, I would like to take this time to THANK YOU and your staff for the wonderful job they did with the Football Academies my son, Patrick Andriani, attended.  Patrick attended your Winter Academy in Fairfield in Jan. of 2013 and the “Time To Shine” Football Camp.  He loved both of them, learned a lot and made a lot of wonderful contacts.  His senior football season was very successful, his team had a winning season and went to the NJ State Playoffs.  He will be playing football at the college level and thankfully has a lot of schools to choose from.  I just wanted to take the time to say Thank you for the wonderful work you and your staff does with young men wanting to compete at the next level.  “Dreams (and hard work) do come true” – Thanks again, Debbie Andriani – Mother of Patrick Andriani – Passaic Valley HS

**  Jack enjoyed every second of this session. He got in the car on Sunday and told me he was glad he didn’t miss one minute and learned more in the eight weeks then he had in the two years he played. Can’t wait until March 9th – Pamela J Schell – Mother of a Hunterdon Huskie

**  Coach Lep, I just wanted to thank you for your academies, camps and showcases. My son, Muhammad Wainwright, participated in your Football Academies last year following his junior year at The Hun School of Princeton. He had a very good senior season and started at both TE and LB. He finished strong and injury free and has committed to play football for the Hoyas in the fall. He is a good student, but there is no doubt in my mind that his ‘hook’ for admission to Georgetown University was football.  His size, athleticism and performance last season caught the attention of several colleges.  Thank you for what you do. I wish I had known about the Football Academy from his Freshman year.  Best Regards, Oliver Wainwright – Father of Muhammad Wainwright – The Hun School

**  I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the role you, your instructors, and your camp in general played in the development of my son Gerard as a player and as a human being. One year at LET EM PLAY led to his being named a co captain of his HS team, first winning record of his HS career and numerous post season accolades, among them; second team All Middlesex County, second team All Area Home News Tribune, and second team All State Group 2. I think he even surprized himself. I always knew he had the goods, and the instruction your staff and his school coaches provided him, honed his skills to their highest level and gave him the self confidence to succeed. He achieved it, but we realize he couldn’t have done it without you. He did it with dignity, selflessness, and heart all of which you helped develop. You should be proud! I know we are! A thousand thanks!!  Respectfully,  Gerard H Reichardt, Jr – Father of Ray and Gerard Reichardt, Spotswood HS

**  My son is attending the Sunday clinic and LOVING IT!  Hats off to all of you-You guys do a fabulous job with the boys!!! – Lori Bonnett – Mother of Preston Krivulka

**  First of all, feedback from my son, Zach, is outstanding.  He thinks very highly of the coaches that are teaching him, and is thrilled to have this opportunity to learn from them.  Also, from where I sit, you guys are very organized and getting the most out of every second of the training … I appreciate that.  He is learning a lot from the OL coach; and he is also learning from the Linebacker Coach as this is a position he’s learning. – Scott Atherton – Father of Zach Atherton – North Hunterdon

**  Coach LePoidevin what a great camp you and your staff run.  My son really enjoyed it and he learned so much.  He was invited and attended some college football camps from being seen at your “Time to Shine” football camp.  We will be at every camp that you have that he can possibly attend.  Although my husband played Div I for Rutgers and was a scholar athlete (Marty Mayes # 65) my son still looks to others for advice, techniques and some times he takes pointers from his “Old Man.”   You and your staff do a great job.  Keep up the great work. Roni Mayes – Mother of Rowen Mayes, Immaculata High School, Somerville, NJ

**  Coach Dave, I need to thank you and coach Rogers!  The technique you showed me this past off season is helping big time.  I had a pick 6 this past weekend using what you guys taught me – Jonathan Milburn – Spotswood High School

**  Hello Coach LePoidevin, Laura Jones here – Jack’s mom (Ramblers).  You loaned me your sunscreen yesterday morning for my son.  I had a really busy morning and as I looked at the schedule I saw it was recommended to attend the opening lecture.  So, I figured ugh, great – how can I get out of this.  I started chatting with Mr. Allgood and suddenly realized that it was almost 10am.  His words were more than inspiring.  I left with a feeling of hope.  That there are people out there who care about children.  My husband picked up Jack so I don’t get the pleasure of saying thank you again for hosting this event, and as I was cleaning the kitchen I saw the email I printed from yesterday morning and at the bottom it says “With one small gesture you can change a person’s life.  For better of Worse… God puts us all in each other’s lives to impact one another in some way.”  I hope this does not come off as conceit, but I think I’m that person.  Your program impacted me.  Thank you.  Sincerely, Laura Jones – Mother from South Hunterdon Youth Organization

**  WOW what can I say……great workout…..Nick couldn’t stop talking about the workout and what he learned and how you pushed him to work harder…..THANK YOU……  What you’re doing will dramatically help…..He was so psyched up after the workout…  He loves football and was jacked…….  keep up the good work!  – Robert Cherasaro – Father of Nick Cherasaro – North Plainfield HS

**  Dave – thanks a lot for running such a great camp last Friday. Harley really enjoyed it and learned some new things. Would you mind sending me the slides you showed on searching for the right college, etc. I liked your presentation and would like to view it again. Thanks, Mike Zeldes – Father of Harley Zeldes – Irvington HS, NY

**  I just wanted to thank you for letting me work your camp this past week. It is always a positive experience for everyone involved. – Mike Hatcher – Assistant Football Coach – Misericordia U.

**  This is Michele, Michael Melograno’s mother, thank you again for the opportunity last Friday with the camp and connecting my son (Defensive/Offensive Lineman) some great future possibilities. It was a pleasure meeting you and what you do for these children is an honor. We look forward to more camps, and opportunities. And if I can help get the word out about your program just let me know. – Michele Melograno – Mother of Michael Melograno – Passaic Valley HS

**  Coach LePoidevin has always done an excellent job with all of his camps. Not only does he provide a great opportunity for the student-athletes to show their talents, but he also allows them to speak with the college coaches afterwards during the recruiting fair. Coach LePoidevin truly cares about the kids. – Jacquis McCray Jr. – Assistant Football Coach – Salisbury University

**  Thank you for the opportunity to allow my son Alan Guzman from Jonathan Dayton H.S. in Springfield to participate in the June 28, 2013 Discovery Camp. He was really inspired by the coaches and your speaker Lonnie Allgood. The experience was wonderful, it allow him to better his techniques and fundamentals with the game of football…thanks for what you are doing for the boys…Noel Guzman

**  Hi Coach, thanks again for everything you are doing for these boys! – Lisa McBriar – Mother of Josh McBriar – North Hunterdon HS

**  Coach, we attended your “Discover” camp on June 8, It was a great experience! My son Nelson Rivera from Manalapan High School had a great day. – Nicole Rivera – Mother of Nelson Rivera – Manalapan HS

**  Coach, thank you very much I really enjoyed the experience. I thought the camp was great and my parents enjoyed it as well. It was worth the long commute and it was a blast to meet all the coaches you had present.  Thanks again Coach for a great camp and being able to meet you.  The football players at the high school you coach are Lucky to have a great coach like yourself. I look forward to hopefully seeing you soon.  Sincerely, Cory Brandon – Pembroke HS

**  The Let’em Play Discover Camp is a great way for student-athletes to showcase their playing skills while developing better techniques and fundamentals with the game of football.  Our coaching staff was extremely impressed by the number of high quality players we saw and evaluated in one day.  Dave and his staff serve as a great conduit between high school players looking to play college football and college football coaches… looking to recruit high quality, high character student-athletes.  We’ll make it an annual stop to jump-start our early recruiting cycle! – Marc A. Klatt, Head Football Coach, Castleton State College (Castleton, VT.)

**  Coach Dave:  Thank you for last weekend.  I enjoyed watching and learning the process of college and sports.  Having just gone through the process of college acceptance for my daughter who will not be playing a sport in college, I felt at a loss to help my son.  However, your talks, your emails, your programs will make this process easy (hopefully).   Kathryn Ader

**  Great Camp!!!  Do you want to know more about college athletics/education from real people who do not have a hidden agenda or ego?  If your answer is yes than this is the camp for you!  Everything was professional from beginning to end as well as safe and well run.  Great educational speeches for parents and kids, actual college coaches watching and providing training, and college fair afterward was great.  It gave you one-on-one time with each school of choice.  It does not matter if you a D1, D2, or D3 prospect, if knowledge is power than I recommend this camp.  My wife, Son and I were extremely pleased with the Let ‘Em Play Camp and we felt it necessary to share our experience for future kids and parents looking for a worthwhile camp.  Sincerely, Ricardo Smith

**  Great job with the camp Dave, even though the weather was tough I thought that it went great, It was well-organized the coaches and players were great. It truly is one of the best camps out there in N.J. Great JOB Dave!  Below is a little testimonial if you want it…  “Let’em Play Camps gives the student athlete’s an opportunity to showcase their talent in front of numerous colleges. As a coach it was great to work with the players on the field and also get the chance to interact with them at the college fair. It is one of the best camps out there. Great Job Dave.” – Dan D’Avanzo – Kean University – Special Teams Coord/DB’s Coach

**  Hi Dave, I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know Kyle had a wonderful time at the Let em Play camp, and learned alot. We (the whole clan) also enjoyed watching the interaction between the coaches and kids, ALL the coaches were absolutely wonderful! – Kim Seber – Mother of Kyle Seber

**  Hi coach, first of all I want to tell you that my son has thoroughly enjoyed the winter session. He has enjoyed the drills and the competition among fellow student athletes.  Stephen Karoly – Father of Stephen Karoly – Monroe Township HS

**  Dear Dave, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the work and care you have extended to Daniel and our entire family. The personal touch that you and your staff exhibits is changing young men’s lives in a positive way.  Daniel will continue his academic and athletic career at William Patterson University, in no small part thanks to to you and your staff.  We wish you and your family all the best and hope to stay in contact in the future.  Sincerely, the Voorhees Family – Dan Voorhees – South Hunterdon High School

**  Coaches- I just want to put in an endorsement for Dave Lepoidevin’s LET’EM PLAY ACADEMY and to reassure coaches that this is not an operation to make money off your kids without utmost concern for developing them as players , athletes and people. This academy deals with fundamentals that are practical in any system . It’s a great function for kids who want to work and enjoy football. Coaches are welcome to come and observe. This winter myself, Greg Lusardi from Morris Catholic and Brian Francis from Par Hills took part in the Fairfield Academy. Players worked hard, got better and enjoyed it. Again I’m just trying to confirm that this a legit football activity that’s good for players.  Gerry Gallagher – Former Head Coach – Montville High School

**  Dear Dave, Stephanie and I would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the kindness you and your staff extended to us on Sunday. The Camp was Professionally prepared as well as challenging and educational for the student athletes that attended. It was refreshing to see so many Football Athletes come to one forum to train and compete before fantastic coaches. Daniel had a blast on the field and was excited to compete against his peers. Keep up the great work and vision for these young men, the experience for them is second to none. We will contact you soon to converse about the next steps for Daniel and Claytons young football careers. – Stephanie Hope and Mark Voorhees – Parents of Daniel Voorhees – South Hunterdon HS

** Hey coach Dave – Great academy. My name is Gerard Reichardt and I have 2 boys enrolled in the academy in Metuchen and they really love it. Thanks for running a great academy and keep up the great work – Father of Gerard and Raymond Reichardt – Spotswood HS

** Hello Coach LePoidevin, I just wanted to send you a quick thank you. My son, Nick Iannacone, attended your discover showcase last month. In doing so, he was able to be seen by several coaches. Yesterday, he signed a letter of commitment to play at Pace University. I honestly feel this was made possible in very large part by the ability to display his skills in front of the Pace coaches and speak with them face to face. Thanks very much! Best Regards, Al Iannacone – Father of Nick Iannacone – New Providence High School

** My son Josh attended camp for the first time this past Sunday and absolutely loved it! I was impressed with how closely the coaches worked with the boys and I’m glad we found this at such an early stage in the game. He’s only in 8th grade and is looking for even more off season football options. Looking forward to Sunday… Selena Gentile – Mother of Josh Formola – Linwood Middle School

** Thanks for your great program and wishing you all the best. – Jill Miller – Mother of Chris Miller – Montgomery High School

** Dave, very pleased with the training so far. I know it’s only been 1 session, but your gang is terrific! – Bill Hutchings – Father of Bill Hutchings – Hunterdon Central Reg. HS

** Coach, I was extremely impressed by the academy this past weekend. I look forward to Sunday! – Coach Matt Yascko – Head Coach – Carteret High School

** Dave, I just wanted to send a note along. Sunday was my son’s first session at the Branchburg Academy and you are truly running a top-class operation. For us, its eye opening to see what a group 1 kid looks like relative to a group 4 kid…..and they run thru the same drills. I was talking with your wife for a while and I can see your academy becoming the top place in mid and northern New Jersey for college scouts to come and look at what NJ has to offer. With a little marketing, you are right there! Thanks, cant wait til next week. You should be very proud at what you have created for the NJ football community. – Ted Kanarek – Father of TJ and Ryan Kanarek – Johnathan Dayton Regional HS

** I look around at Fairfield and see kids working and coaches stressing fundamentals for a solid hour and a half. The things being worked on fit into any offense or defense. I spoke with Coach Lusardi on Sunday and he made the point that he’d like his kids to be part of it whether he was coaching or not. What you are doing is good for kids. It’s a worthwhile, positive activity. Good job! – Gerry Gallagher – Former Head Coach – Montville High School, NJFCA Hall of Fame Member

**  DaMario will be Playing out his College Football Career at University of Michigan as apart of the 2013 Class.  Thanks for working with him… you along with others helped him get to the next Level. It takes a village to raise a child.  Well wishes and tell this year participants that dreams come true…  Just keep Planting, Stepping, and Driving : )  Thx!!! – Odis Jones – guardian of DaMario Jones

**  Coach, your camps give college recruiters the opportunity to see and evaluate prospective student-athletes from the state of New Jersey.  You’ve done so much to help Salisbury University and so many other college programs throughout the country.  If there is anything that I can do to assist you and your efforts in the future, just let me know.  I don’t know where I’d be without your help. – Jacquis McCray – Assistant Football Coach – Salisbury University

**  Dave, thanks so much for having us up this weekend.  We really enjoyed having the chance to meet you and watch the kids workout.  I thought you guys did a great job and the kids had a very good day overall. Thanks for all of you help – Mike Hatcher – Head Football Coach – Misericordia University

**  Coach, I just wanted to thank you and all of your staff for a very productive football camp.  John learned a lot during these past few months and had fun while learning.  We wish you and you staff the best of luck and we will see you soon.
Sincerely, John Phelan – Father of John Phelan Jr. – High School Student Athlete

**  I’ve known Dave for five years and have worked everyone of his camps.  The reason coaches work with Dave, he does a great job. He really helps me out with recruiting the state of New Jersey. Makes things a lot more simple and less time consuming.  Tim Tobin Defesive line and Special Teams Coordinator – Tusculum College

**  Dave – I attribute much of Michael’s success this year to all of the hard work he’s put in at the academy – so, it’s you and your Team who deserve much of the credit for his success.  I tell everyone about Let’em Play and the great job you guys do in developing these young men!
Thanks again, Scott Jensen – Father of Mike Jensen – Bishop Ahr High School

**  Hi Coach, this is Mike’s dad, just wanted to say that I think you guys run a great camp. We have been to a few camps and the experience wasn’t the same. You and your coaches were great, you guys took the time to give a lot of information about school,nutrition, showed the kids tips on the combine and position playing, a lot of camps wont even do half of that. I know that you need to be careful about some camps you attend because a lot of times its just about the money but not with you guys. I appreciated that some of the coaches spoke to both of us personally about his grades, SAT’s and tips on what he should do about having a successful future. So again I just wanted to thank you and your crew for a great job. Mike Thomas – Father of Mike Thomas – Burlington Township High School

**  Dave, I know you are very knowledgeable in the recruiting process and very passionate about the game of football. Which is one of the reasons why we have been a part of your organization for the past four years, but I must tell you that your personality, energy and genuine
attention to the athletes you train has kept us coming back and looking forward to a continued relationship. Keep the vision and faith, so many will benefit from you and your staff. – Mark Voorhees – Father of Daniel Voorhees – South Hunterdon Regional High School

**  The Let ‘Em Play camps have been a GREAT asset for our program at William Paterson University.  It really gives us a jump start on the recruiting process and provides us with an opportunity to expose our program to the players and to also be exposed to juniors who will become seniors.  The structure of the camp is set up so there is a chance to scout each player regardless of position and then with the college fair, it offers a chance to begin relationships with these young men which is critical in the recruiting process at the Division III level.  It has been a pleasure to have the opportunity to be involved with the Let ‘Em Play camps over the last several years and our program looks forward to continued success working with Dave and his staff! – Ethan Jeros – Assistant Football Coach – William Paterson University

**  Dave, the services you provide have been extremely valuable to our college and football program.  You provide great insight about prospects both on and off the field.  We know that when you give us information, it is both accurate and reliable.
Mike Neale – Assistant Football Coach – Albright College

**  Dave and the staff at Let ‘Em Play do a remarkable job at showcasing student-athletes and helping them earn recognition and exposure as they prepare for life as a collegiate student-athlete. Their commitment and selfless service not only aid athletes and their families in being recruited, but also prepare them for life in College. They do a great job in finding the right “fit” for their kids which will benefit them for life after college as well. – Ted Florio – Assistant Football Coach – Pace University

**  During my time associated with Dave’s organization, I have been very impressed with the overall honesty of service. Dave legitimately cares for the young student athletes under his tutelage. He makes sure that they all get exposed to the many aspects that make a successful student athlete. – University of Georgia Assistant Football Coach

**  Coach, I would like to thank you for inviting my players to the camp they thoroughly enjoyed it and so did I.  It was well organized and was ran very professionally.  Thank you again
Rich Hilliard – Head Football Coach – Cardinal McCarrick High School

** Coaches – I have been associated with Dave LePoidevin’s “LetemPlay” camps from his beginning. Dave is sincere in his desire to help young men become better football players and better people. Participants look forward to each week’s experience. Coaches are prepared and follow a curriculum to improve fundamentals that can enhance any player in any system. The 1 1/2 hour sessions are organized and no time is wasted – Gerry Gallagher – Former Head Coach – Montville High School, NJFCA Hall of Fame member

**  The 2008 Let Em’ Play Discover Camp allowed high school football players interaction with many college coaches throughout the country. David LePoidevin provides an excellent opportunity and enviroment for all high school football players. The amount of individual attention including film seminars, motivational speakers and collegiate instruction is second to none. I am excited for future of Let’Em Play Discover Camps  and fortunate to establish a relationship between David, Let’Em Play Discover Camps, and the Merrimack College Football Program. – Ben Martin – OL Coach Merrimack College
