Football Clinics


Run It Performance is a cutting edge running back specific program serviced to help develop serious athletes, led by former High School/College All-American and NFL Running Back Arlen Harris. Our goal is to educate and train young football players to maximize their full skill levels at being a ball carrier. Coach Harris has the unique experience of having success at every level from youth to his professional playing career. He is now using those same disciplines learned, to master his expertise as a trainer/coach to prepare the next generations of complete running backs across the globe. There are so many different style ball carriers, and with the face of offenses consistently changing on how they utilize their backfield, it is very important to learn from someone who has a strong background in multiple offensive schemes in order to help turn your weaknesses into strengths.
