Cecil Martin visits the Manchester Titans

On Tuesday 9th April for NFL Full-Back and Sky Sports presenter Cecil Martin visited the Manchester Titans to run a training session and Q&A for Under 18s in the local area who are interested in American Football.  The event held in association with club sponsors Manchester Printers was at the Titans home ground of Salford City Stadium.

The former Phillidelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers player provided a high energy, hands on training session that all those taking part thoroughly enjoyed.

Cecil was on hand to put them through their paces in drills for Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, Defensive Backs, Running Backs, Lineman and Linebacker.  Spending time at each station the 90 minute long coaching session was detailed and fun.

After the group gathered inside the stadium where Cecil gave an inspirational talk to  the group detailing the struggles he had to  overcome in his life to achieve success and focussed on the similies between American Football and real life, focussing on key principles of Hard Work, Perseverance and Focus.

Following this Cecil spent over an hour posing for photographs, signing pictures, shirts, gloves and even a pair of boots for the eager crowd.

Cecil currently works with high school student-athletes across the country educating them on the college recruiting process as an Educational Speaker for the National Collegiate Scouting Association.  He also promotes the Football University tour which hosts camps in the UK and Europe.
