Coach’s Corner


About Coach Tony Ballard

Coach Tony knew in high school that one day he would become a coach, a teacher, and motivator for athletes of all ages, specifically those desiring to develop and/or refine their talent in the Quarterback position. He truly grasped the true meaning of working hard from Henry “SHAKE” Washington and Clarence Higdon.  He also discovered a simple fact – Failure Is Not An Option!!

Coach Tony attended Florida A&M University where he learned the Quarterback position by playing and studying the fundamental techniques that make a Quarterback GREAT! He truly believes you must be a “student of the game” first, so that you can ultimately be a “master of the game”.

In the Tampa Bay area Coach Tony developed an eye for recognizing Quarterbacks, and this is where he began training young Quarterbacks.  After years of experience, in Florida and Georgia, working with Quarterbacks at all levels, he founded “HUSTLE INC QUARTERBACKS ACADEMY”.

Over the past 20 years, Coach Tony has helped develop hundreds of Quarterbacks; from refining their technique in the position to teaching them the value of being a leader on the field and in the classroom. Coach Tony’s attention to detail, knowledge of the game, and the ability to translate complex techniques into an easily recognizable language separates him from the rest!

Coach Tony has received many accolades, but of all of his accomplishments what he appreciates most is the development of his students off the field; watching them mature, and become responsible young men in their homes, their schools and their communities.  All of his Hustle Inc. programs set aside time for these young men to give back to their communities, teaching them to not only appreciate what they have, but that giving back is not just a choice, but a responsibility.

“Empowering our present to become leaders of our future.”
