My goal is to help every child reach their potential and establish a foundation in training that will carry them through life and their athletic career.

I teach the tactics and fundamentals from some of the top coaches and trainers around the country and marry it with my own experience to help athletes throughout the area, including Frisco ISD, Plano ISD, and surrounding districts so they too can reach the next level.

​Parents throughout North Texas put their trust in me and I am committed to helping your child excel.

"My son had the tremendous fortune to get drafted in FFL by Tony Ortiz and play for him.  Since then Jack has continued to work with Tony and LBU, and I can't say enough about how wonderful he has been for Jack's development in football.  Tony is a fantastic teacher and coach, and he gives every one of his students a major advantage over the other kids they compete against.  He has the rare ability to take his NFL and NCAA National Championship skills and knowledge and translate that into a language that young athletes can understand - that is a gift that MOST do not possess.  Can't say enough positive things about not only his coaching and mentoring, but the love he has shown my son over the years.  If your kid has the desire to improve in the game, do them a favor and let Tony help make them all they can be."
