Exposure and improvement is the Factory Football Group's primary focus for its trainees for the 2012 offseason, as its workouts begin Sunday, Jan. 15.

That Sunday trainers/owners Reggie Williams and Todd Johnson will conduct their first High School Football offseason workouts from 10 a.m. until noon and will hold them every Sunday until the 2012 football season begins.

"There are so many kids in the Valley that can play at a high level that just haven't had the opportunity to be exposed," Williams said. "The window is so small, it needs to be capitalized."

They will meet in the parking lot just south of the Clovis West baseball stadium. The workouts start at 10 a.m., but participants need to be there by 9:30 a.m. to get stretched out.

Participants need to bring enough water to stay hydrated, but no major equipment is required.

"All you need to bring is your cleats and your A-game," Johnson said.

During the workout, the Factory will focus on position-specific drills that emphasize footwork, agility, lateral movement and technique. Following the position drills, 7-on-7 passing will take over the remainder of the practice. During the 7-on-7, linemen will work on pass protection and pass rush.

"There are some diamonds in the rough and we need to shine them up," Williams said.

Johnson and Williams also wanted to emphasize they want to see more linemen in their group and pointed out one of their lineman clients received a scholarship offer last year from one of the lineman challenges they went to.

The Factory plans to once again go to a number of 7-on-7 tournaments and lineman challenges this year to get their clients in the recruiting spotlight.

"We provide opportunities for them to maximize their potential with the workout group and the exposure with the 7-on-7 tournaments, camps and lineman challenges," Johnson said. "We basically maximize their opportunity to advance."

Williams said last year at the Gridiron Academy in Los Angeles, every player from the Factory Football Group received either all-camp first or second team recognition

"This requires a real commitment and the players that come every week will perfect their craft which will help them compete against the best in the country," Williams said. "And those are the players that will put themselves in position to expose their abilities and gain the attention of the movers and shakers of the recruiting world."

They also mention they have access tutoring services in preparation for the ACT and SAT tests, to help ensure the kids will be college eligible.
