AndrewChatterton“Coach Westenhaver is “the real thing”, a “coach’s coach”, “a true scholar of the game of football”. He understands the thinking of a quarterback. I also write this to note my sincere thanks to Coach Westenhaver for coaching Carson for the last four years. He has provided counseling, coaching, and an amazing in debth knowledge of the game of football to Carson. He has a true understanding of what is required to be a successful quarterback and how to teach it to the player. I believe in his loyalty, passion, determination, teaching, leadership and that his coaching ability to be exceptional.

Simply put, Coach Westenhaver has been instrumental in developing and fine tuning Carson’s quarterback skills with great success. I’m proud to report that my son Carson will be attending the University of Dayton this fall through the aid of Football Evaluations’ College Football Scouting Report and playing football as a 2013 recruit as a QB. I’m convinced Coach Westenhaver’s ability to develop Carson’s talent is the reason he has been recruited as a Division 1-AA quarterback.”

Your assistance in getting the facts pulled together in a professional manner, from a reliable source, coupled with your continued support and knowledge, you were able to deliver exactly what you said. We know the fact that we were able to get your package in the coaches hands as early as we did played a significant part in helping him get a couple of early offers. We could not be more pleased with The College Football Scouting Report program!

JoeyLonghinoI highly recommend John Westenhaver and Football Evaluations. The in depth Football Evaluation proved to be valuable information to distribute to college coaches. More importantly, his knowledge of the Quarterback position and his technique in teaching that position is second to none. From footwork, to throwing fundamentals, to alternative platforms, John’s knowledge of these must have skills will take any Quarterback to the next level. John also developed a personal relationship with my son that not only raised the bar for him as a Quarterback, but also impacted him with regards to character and integrity.

My son went from QB to outside Linebacker and it worked. John was a big influence to Ryan’s growth. Thanks John for your help.” — Curt Seibert 

JohnWeber“I wanted to let you know that my son, John, verbally accepted a $200,000.00 scholarship to play football for Colegate University (Division I AA) yesterday afternoon.  We truly appreciate everything you have done for John.  You are a valued family friend.  Your helpful advice has made a big difference.  I will always remember you telling me that football players need to play.  Well, that is exactly what they have planned for my son.”

— Mary Weber, Mother of John

“I’m glad that someone directed my son to you to help his situation. When we got your report it was outstanding and the low points of the evaluation my son knew from being told so in practice. Anyway, I hope you’re alive when my grandchildren come through, because you’re the man. You evaluate high school, college and work with the pros, you know what to do and when to do it. Thank you John.”
