High School

Each year, more and more of these outstanding young men train at MQA. Like Sean White, who won the NIKE Elite 11 competition, was MVP at the Under Armor All Star game and attends Auburn on a full Football scholarship. And Peyton Bender, who set school records at Cardinal Gibbons and is now on scholarship for the Washington State Cougars. And Wade Freebeck, who trained with MQA while at St. Thomas Aquinas, and now attends Vanderbilt on a football scholarship. Dwyer HS Daniel Parr, who has trained with Ken Mastrole since the 8th grade has lead his team to a State Championship and was honored as the 2013 Florida Player of the Year.

A training program, designed by Ken Mastrole, to provide high school quarterbacks the necessary instruction and evaluations to maximize potential while accomplishing personal as well as team goals.  Each year we train and evaluate hundreds of quarterbacks not just in Florida but also across the country.  Our network of college coaches and reputation has been built on our quarterback development success at the high school level.

MQA has produced over 65 collegiate quarterbacks in the last 5 years.  In 2014, Ken Mastrole trained 14 quarterbacks that signed football scholarships.  All 14 had spent 3 plus years within the MQA system.  Quarterback Daniel Parr, Dwyer HS & FAU commit, trained with MQA since his 8th grade year.  Parr went on to win a state championship in 2013 and Florida 6A-8A player of the year.  2017 quarterbacks Toddy Centeio (Royal Palm Beach HS) and Jake Allen (Cardinal Gibbons HS) have already received scholarship offers and are starting at the varsity level as freshman and sophomores.  Both quarterbacks are training year round with Ken Mastrole and have developed into major college prospects through he MQA system.

Our systematic approach is unmatched.  We provide a unique evaluation, training, development, and exposure program that has generated over 8 million dollars in scholarship money as well as produced hundreds of starting quarterbacks at the high school level.  We use a proven model testing core competencies.  We provide a qualitative and quantitative analysis for quarterbacks and parents.  This allows the athlete to compare himself on a high school national average (for quarterbacks we have worked with and tested).  For example we have developed a series of tests for throwing mechanics, ball velocity, release times, foot speed, flexibility, and decision-making.  Our testing provides the most accurate and realistic evaluation for the quarterback, parent, and potential college coach.


The class of 2014 for Mastrole Quarterback Academy was the best quarterback class in the Nation.  Sean White (University School) was named Nike Elite 11 & The Opening MVP, Under Armour All-American, Under Armour Game MVP, All State,  and signed with Auburn University.  Peyton Bender (Cardinal Gibbons HS) set multiple season and career passing records for his high school and now is competing for the starting job at Washington State University.   Wade Freebeck (St. Thomas Aquinas HS) signed his letter of intent with Vanderbilt University and has started as a true freshman for the commodores.  Blake Sims is an excellent example of how MQA develops quarterbacks mentally and physically.  After spending 3 years as a backup to AJ McCarron, Blake was a Senior and finally ready to compete for the Crimson Tide’s starting QB.  The level of competition at the position was quickly elevated when a highly touted transfer, who just missed winning the job over Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, arrived on campus.  Here is a time line of Blake’s progress and success after winning the starting QB job at Alabama.

On March 15th, 2014 Spring had begun with Sims returning from a week of intense work on the field and in the film room with private QB coach Ken Mastrole in South Florida

On April 5th, 2014 Senior quarterback Blake Sims led the offense with 227 yards while completing 70 percent of his passes (16 of 23) and tossing two touchdowns

June 2014 Sims heads back to Florida to work with Ken Mastrole.  Their focus: Balance, alignment, stroke path, and breathing.  This combined with a heavy dose of film study, understanding the dynamics of a west coast offense and how to “learn” and not memorize a playbook.

July 2014 Sims spend one more week with coach Mastrole prior to the start of fall camp.  Fine tuning, understanding emotional IQ, video analysis, and film study where the final pieces before returning to Tuscaloosa.  http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/11619467/blake-sims-had-many-guiding-hands-road-becoming-alabama-crimson-tide-quarterback

In 2014, Mastrole continued with first round quarterbacks when he took over the Pre NFL draft training for Louisville star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.  Mastrole organized private workouts in South Florida, while training Bridgewater, for several NFL teams.  The most important, the Minnesota Vikings, would go on and draft their quarterback of the future in the first round (32nd overall).  Mastrole was also responsible for the most decorated quarterback in Clemson football history Tajh Boyd.  Boyd’s Pro Day was recognized, in 2013, as one of the best orchestrated Pro Day’s by Media and NFL Scouts. Boyd executed almost a flawless workout with only one incompletion in 68 throws.

Private coaches growing influence on college quarterbacks

Ken Mastrole provides many of today’s college, professional, and high school quarterbacks the opportunity to sharpen and mold their fundamentals, mechanics, and mental toughness year round. Jake Rudock of Iowa and Brandon Doughty of Western Kentucky are spending a morning with coach Mastrole sharpening areas of their footwork and mechanics that will help provide them with the edge to master their respected craft.
