About Elite Football Skills

Elite Football Skills is owned and operated by Scott Semptimphelter, who has years of experience of playing professional football in the NFL and AFL, as well as coaching football at the professional, high school, and youth levels.

As a young high school QB in New Jersey, he was asked by a friend to work with his 11-year old son on the mechanics of throwing a football. This turned into an assistant coaching job for this young boy's 11-year old football team, and from that moment on, Scott knew he had a gift to teach the game of football. Over the years, he has worked with many young men from ages 8-18, and deep down always knew this was something he wanted to do.

Finally, after years of toying with the idea of starting a football skills academy, Scott launched Elite Football Skills in the Fall of 2010.

Below are some of Scott's key accomplishments over the years as a player and as a coach.
