“Winning Youth Football’s Step by Step Plan” and the associated books, and DVDs were written and produced by Dave Cisar.
Dave is the founder and President of the all volunteer, Screaming Eagles Youth Football Organization. It was started in 1998 as a free program for at-risk youth in inner-city Omaha, Nebraska. Under Dave’s leadership, the program served over 400 children ages 6-14 with programs in academic accountability, character development, youth football and other youth sports. Dave now heads up the Eagle program in the Lincoln, Nebraska.
Dave’s record of accomplishment in the youth football field includes a 182-28 Fall record since putting this system in place in 2002. His player retention rate has consistently been over 95%. His last 18 teams have won 12 Championships during that span with 10 very different teams and in 5 different Youth Football Leagues. The current league his teams play in has nearly 100 teams in 3 age groups. All the DVDs are of Dave’s personal youth football teams.
He has done over 220 coaches clinics in the US, Europe and Latin America for Nike, Glazier Mega Clinics, Clinic of Champions and now his own “Winning Youth Football” clinics. He continues to head up his organization as well as coaches a team or teams every year. Dave is a former business owner and proud husband and father. He gave his life to Christ in 1996 and has a passion for helping youth coaches help their players to have a great football experience.
His latest endeavor is “Worst to First”, a youth football Reality Television show where Dave takes a real life long suffering “worst” in league team and turns them into champions. After looking at dozens of applications in 2014 Dave commuted to Reno Nevada weekly from Nebraska and turned around an eighth grade youth team. He took that team to it’s first ever winning season, first ever mercy rule win and first ever playoff birth, all the way to the semi-finals. They went from scoring 104 points in 2013 to 413 in 2014.
