Scott Woodruff, general manager for the Grand Rapids Rampage, said this of his experience with Dr. Eddie and the Performance Excellence Center:

The Grand Rapids Rampage contracted with Dr. Eddie O’Connor during the 2007 Arena Football League season. Our objectives were to help our players become more mentally tough by learning to focus and re-focus, and by learning to overcome adversity.

Dr. O’Connor made a weekly presentation to our team, tailoring each lesson based on the situation we faced that particular week (record, opponent, injuries, etc.). In addition, Dr. O’Connor made himself accessible at practice and games.

The results were terrific!

Our players found Dr. O’Connor’s instruction very practical and easy to apply. Moreover, our coaches learned lessons that allowed them to reinforce what Dr. O’Connor taught.

Based on my experience working with Dr. O’Connor I strongly recommend you give serious consideration to hiring him.
