Testimonial

I started with Top Gun in the summer of 2011 as an intern for Coach Brian Hershman and his teams and have had an extremely rewarding experience. Not only have I learned a lot about coaching from Coach Hershman and Coach Egidio, but they have also taught me a lot about how to successfully work with many different types of people and run a program. I have since been promoted from intern and now Coach my own teams within the Top Gun program and could not think of a better club to work for or people to work with.

– Kevin Hindenach  (Who is now going to USF Grad school for Sports Management)

Overall, I do it all over again if I had to. Top Gun took me in and treated me like family. They also helped mold my coaching philosophy, while teaching me the ins and outs of the coaching game. When I was with Top Gun I was around a lot of coaches with various coaching styles, but I knew that I was receiving the best coaching education I could find. I can honestly say that without the guidance of Brian Hershman and John Egidio I would not have ended up here. It hurt leaving the Top Gun family, but I know that currently, this is what’s best for me and my family. Plus the fact that I know that I can bring more to the table if we were to work together again.
