Ben Davis High School went 14-0 in 2017. They won the state championship, finished the season ranked as the No. 1 team in Indiana and sixth in the nation. They also won the state championship in 2014. That’s quite a resume and we were fortunate and blessed to get Ben Davis head coach Mike Kirschner as our featured speaker for our Indianapolis Online Clinic. His three part video series is absolutely one of the best presentations we have here at Chiefpigskin. He is a master at coaching the offensive line and his year round program is the most comprehensive I’ve ever seen. His attention to detail in O line play whether it be run or pass pro technique is first rate. Kirschner believes in developing the complete athlete: physically, mentally and spiritually. This video series will show how he does it and must be viewed by every football coach out there. That includes college and pro! Click here to see the videos.
