What people are saying about Speedburners:


To Rick Hagedorn and Speedburners,

Being a former NFL linebacker, you and I know how important speed is.  I have played football all of my life and the influential coaches like yourself helped me to reach my final goal.  The only thing in my experience would have been to have had Speedburners available in my hometown.

I want to personally thank you for bringing the most all around athletes to the Nike "You're Faster Than You Think" fastest kid in Southern California Invitational.  Your male and female kids outperformed any expectation I could have had.  They were not only good athletes but also very well mannered.  I look forward to following each of your athlete's futures and wish them the best.  If there is anything I can do for Speedburners please don't hesitate to ask.

Keith Miller, Student Sports Magazine, and former NFL linebacker with the St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks



I want you to know how grateful I am for all that you've done for me and my boys.  I have started a business because of the knowledge I have gained from you.  My boy's current and future success is a direct result of what you've done, as well as all the athletes I've trained.  I was once told that each person has an effect on 10,000 people in their lifetime and as a coach that is multiplied many times over.  Your work and dedication to athletes and myself as a coach will have an impact on many lives for many years to come.  Thank you for everything you have done for me and my sons.

John Davis, Director of Davis Strength, and father of Speedburners John Michael and Seth


To Whom It May Concern,

My name is John Brock.  I am the Director of Player Personnel for Army Football in West Point, N.Y.  My previous job was Director of Football Camps and Combines at Student Sports in Los Angeles, CA.  Student Sports is in charge of executing all of Nike's football camps and combines all over the country. 

Through my years with Nike I worked with a number of top flight speed coaches all over the country, but none better than Rick Hagedorn.  I have known Rick for about three years now and I relied on him heavily during my time with Nike.  Whether it was working on a one on one basis or large groups, Rick was always able to get the most out of his athletes.

The unique thing about Rick and what really separates him from other speed coaches is that he doesn't just make his athletes better, he makes them understand the concepts that he is teaching.  It is one thing to get an athlete faster and more explosive, but it is another to teach that athlete the techniques to carry it on in the future.

Rick Hagedorn always went above and beyond what I asked of him and he expected nothing in return.  Whether it was running a camp of up to 200 athletes or just getting his players to perform at their very best at our events Rick always showed the utmost class and really cared about the people he trained.

I hope my words are enough to show how much I respect Rick as a trainer and a person.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.

John Brock, Director of Player Personnel, Army Football

Coach Rocket Rick,


Words cannot express the deep amount of gratitude and appreciation I have for all of the wonderful tools that you have equipped me with as a professional athlete. SPEEDBURNERS, is hands down the greatest speed performance company on the planet. Your wisdom, your passion, your patience, and attention to detail while coaching me has truly helped me to awaken the  world class athlete that I've always known was sleeping deep down inside of me. I owe you the hugest amount of gratitude for helping me to grow into my role as an NFL football player, and as a new father and God fearing man. There are not enough thank you's in the world to truly express my undying gratitude for the love and care you have provided me as my coach, my mentor, my big brother, and my role model. You have prepared me to be more confident, faster, stronger, and have more mental endurance than my competition. I cannot remember a time when I've felt more prepared for the on the field battles or the adversities that life will most assuredly continuously present. While playing collegiate football at USC I did have the privilege of being taught by some of the most talented, renowned, and influential coaches in the nation, but it has been my experiences with SPEEDBURNERS, and Coach Rick, where I have undeniably evolved my speed and other athletic abilities to the next level. You have most certainly left a life-long lasting thumb print on my heart, not only through football and competition but in my walk to be a man of strength, compassion, honor, and integrity. I am FOREVER indebted to you Coach Rick, for the blessing of knowledge and friendship that you have shown my family and I throughout the years. I love you big brother Rocket Rick "SWAGadorn" thank you for giving me a chance to be great!


Great and Respectfully yours,



John Walker, DB, USC Trojans and Houston Texans

I can’t say enough thank yous to you! I know you didn't have to work with me, but I really, really, appreciate all your help! The pleasure was all mine! You made me better and I am so grateful for the time we spent together!

Sarah Gascon, USA Olympian and Captain of Team USA Handball




Hey Rick!
I just wanted o thank you for all the help you have given me over the past year! My game would not be where it’s at today if it wasn’t for your training and guidance! You rock! And I hope to see all of you around Christmas break! Thanks again and I will be sure to use my ladder and do Speedburners proud in North Carolina!

I know my running form isn't perfect, but your help both on the field and off has allowed me to reach my goals.  Hope to spend some time on the islands with you soon.

Just wanted to write a little note to say Thanks!  I appreciate everything you’ve done for me past and present. It’s always nice to know I have someone I can go to who is on my side and trains me hard. I look forward to more workouts in the future!  Nothing compares to a Speedburner workout!

Always ~ Jeanette

Joe Cruz, Father of Speedburner WR AJ Cruz of the Arena Football League Arizona Rattlers






I didn’t get a chance to thank you for today’s workout. I learned a lot and it shows you are one of the elite! I can honestly say this is the fastest I’ve felt  going into camp in my career. Thanks again!

Keith Heinrich, TE Tampa Bay Buccaneers




Thank you for everything you have done for me. And most importantly for treating me like family.

Leonard Peters, Former NFL Safety, USA Rugby Team


Thank you again, Rick for was such a joy to be caoche by you.


Speedburner Master Sprinter Chris Richards






I know this is way overdue but I really must thank you for all that you have done and still continue to do for me.  Training with you has brought me to a whole new level in track and I will be forever grateful for your training and support.  Being a part of Speedburners has allowed me to realize the importance of pure speed when I train. I know that I would not have become an All American and at one point lead the nation over 800 meters without your help.  The atmosphere when training with you has the perfect balance of intensity and excitement, which makes it so enjoyable.  Your friendship and support over the past few years has meant so much to me.  I respect you so much not only as a trainer but as a wonderful person.  Thank you so much!

Emily Dunn, Esperanza High School, Brigham Young University



Had a blast in my first NFL game Coach!  Was so much fun…thank you so much for making it possible and helping me along the way.


Nate Menkin, OT Philadelphia Eagles



Thank you very much for all you have done and hopefully will do for Nick. His 40 time is much improved running the fastest freshman time at his high school and the 9th fastest time for a freshman quarterback at the combine. It’s only been a few short months and we are excited at the prospects for his future.
Update: Nick just ran a 4.8 at the combine this morning!!!!! Go Speedburners!!!

Laurren and Karen Kennedy, Parents of Speedburner QB Nick Kennedy, San Gorgonio High Football


Thanks Rick!
You mean so much to our family. Thanks for everything you do!! God bless<3

Thank you for your mentoring with Alex. He feels better when he can get a perspective from you who he respects as a sprint coach.

Thanks for the sharing of your amazing knowledge this weekend!  Doesn’t get any better!  Hoping to come to Cali in July!

"I truly believe that Speedburners played a critical role in our team's success last year.  Without question, the program maximized our athlete's mental and physical performance.  The power and adaptability of Speedburners allowed our players to effectively train in all areas of their game both individually and as a team."

Randy Wellen, Head Basketball Coach and 2004 Orange County Coach of the Year of the 2004 CIF Champion Sunny Hills Lancers



We were fortunate to host a Speedburners youth speed camp at our facility and it was a tremendous success.  The two day speed camp provided an outstanding opportunity for the young student-athletes of Northeast Ohio.  Rick Hagedorn and his staff did a phenomenal job at teaching the athletes how to train for speed.

I have been following the Speedburners program for the past few years and it is great to see how the program continues to grow each year as more student-athletes and their parents and coaches recognize the value of training for speed.  As the level of competition in every sport continues to increase, participating in the Speedburners program is essential in order to compete and excel.

This well organized, highly successful program should be embraced by anyone dedicated to promoting better performance of young athletes.

Ed Suggs, Director of Youth Development & Outreach

Cleveland Browns




Thanks for everything!  You're the best speed coach ever!

Anthony Chambers, Shreveport Battlewings, Arena Football



I started training with Coach Hagedorn in Junior College on my way to trying to become a Division I football player.  Many coaches at that level were suspect of my speed.  Rick vastly improved my forty time speed (4.46) and footwork which allowed me to achieve a football scholarship to Colorado State University.  I still continue to train with Coach Hagedorn in my quest to reach the next level.  I would not be where I am today if it was not for him.

Benny Mastropaolo, Defensive Back, Colorado State University Football



Thanks Rick!  You have been a huge part in getting me to the point I am at.  I owe you a lot.

Brendan Circle, Wide Receiver, Princeton University Football



What an unbelievable experience for my varsity girls basketball team;  Coach Hagedorn and his speed drills are amazing.  The girls had a lot of fun while working hard and almost immediately we were seeing improvement in their balance and footwork.  I love so much what he has done for my team's overall speed, that now as a father, I have Coach Hagedorn working with my three younger kids.

Roger  Anderson,  Head  Varsity  Girls  Basketball Coach at

Troy High School in Fullerton, California


Thank you Rick for helping to train me throughout my whole football career!!  Have a Happy Thanksgiving, send my Aloha to the family!

Richard Torres, University of Hawaii Football, Graduate Assistant Coach University of Hawaii


Dear Rick,

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for me. I had the best track season in my high school career because of your coaching and friendship. It was you and your training that helped me to accomplish things I didn’t think were possible.  You coached me to be the fastest girl in Orange County in the 200 meters.  I cannot thank you enough for always believing in me and staying with me throughout the entire year. Thank You!

Adriana Bracamonte, Orange Lutheran High Track


I came to Rick Hagedorn in October of 2006 and told him I had a problem. I came from a small NAIA school in which I never started one game, I was now twenty six years old, and my biggest problem was that I actually timed out at a 5.3 forty yard dash. After I dumped all of this on Rick I told him that I had two weeks to prepare for an open tryout with the Arizona Rattlers.

Instead of throwing me out of his office, Rick put me to work. The fact that Rick took me in says a lot about the type of person he is. Most top level speed coaches only work with people that are proven. Rick never treated me any differently than any of his other top athletes.

In just two weeks of Speedburner training Rick got me down to a 4.9 forty yard dash. Being 285 pounds and now running a 4.9 impressed the coaches so much that they signed me to a two year contract. The coaches were very impressed with how quick my feet were and I can only contribute that to Rick and his Speedburner program.

I owe everything to Rick; it was his willingness to take on a small school athlete that has allowed me to achieve my dream of playing professional football. I recommend Rick Hagedorn and Speedburners to anyone that takes training seriously and has the desire to take their game to the next level.

Erik Arevalo, Fullback, Arizona Rattlers, Arena Football League

Great article (Honolulu Advertiser – Rich Torres) and congrats on the plug. Your caring nature about young

people has paid off.  I expect to se more articles about you in the future…probably not in Texas though. ~Lol

You’re the best speed coach in the country…no matter where you are!

Jason Patterson – Founder of Jointegrity, and Speedburner Strength Coach




Thank you so much for everything you did for me!  I feel so blessed. I felt like my season was done and you made me feel successful and more confident and helped me to enjoy track again.  And thank you for taking the time to work with me and I would like to work with you more next season!

I like to check on your website to see what’s happening with all the kids.  I just saw what you posted on Ashley!  It made me cry.  You have been so supportive with your time and talent and encouragement. You’re awesome because you have given and expected nothing in return but to see your athletes succeed.

Thank you for being such a big part of her success these past three years!

Cynthia Cole, mother of Ashley Bush, Sprinter, Sonora High School, moving on to Biola University



Good Morning. Sarah’s team went 4-1 in Oregon with only loss coming to the eventual champion. Texting you because many people came up to me over the last four days and told me how fast and quick Sarah has gotten. Thanks!

Jerry Rahon, Father of Speedburner Sarah Rahon, Mater Dei High Basketball




Hey Rick,

I’m leaving off the track and I’m not supposed to feel this explosive after one workout with you. It’s crazy. But incorporating the arms at the 90 degree angle and cocking the start leg on the start is making a world of difference in my take off and explosion.  I’ve been feeling sluggish the last few weeks and it’s taken that all away. Once I start off explosive I feel explosive all the way.  When are we training next?

Travis Brown, 41 year old DB of the Arena Football Conroe Jaguars


Dear Rick,

I'd like to thank you for taking the time to train with me over the past year.  I know I have gotten so much stronger and with your help, I feel extremely prepared for college.  I will definitely be taking everything I've learned from you and adapting that into my training in Colorado.  I'll update you on how everything goes next season.  Once again, thank you so much; you have by far been the best and most helpful coach I have ever had!

Allison Francke, Rosary High Track and Field, heading to the University of Colorado



Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate everything you’ve done for Keelan.  He is seriously motivated by your skills and encouragement. Thank you and may God bless you for being the wonderful person that you are.

I just wanted to say thank you for working with me on my speed and getting closer to my goals.  I’ve got some gear for you the next time I see you.  Thanks a lot coach.

Russell Carr, WR University of Texas at El Paso




Trevor had a good season this year that attributed to three solid offers among nine colleges showing interest.  I contribute his success this year to Speedburners.  The change in Trevor's performance cannot go unnoticed.  I truly believe that it has everything to do with the fundamentals that were taught through your training.  Thanks!

Tim Erno, father of Speedburner Linebacker Trevor Erno of Lakewood High School. Lakewood, Ca. now playing at the University of Arizona


Coach Rick,

Just wanted to say that I will be forever thankful for you training me and helping me work towards my goal of becoming an NBA player. I never in my life had anyone, relative or friend, help me just for the sake of helping me.  It has just been me and Jesus for the longest.  The road has been tough and I just wanted to say thank you.  In short, God bless you.

Jamal Abdullah, Lone Star College Basketball


Hey Coach,

At the time I came to see you, I was willing to think that 30 was old. What you taught me has seemed to reverse the aging in my body.

I feel great!!  I appreciate you Coach, and the time and energy you took to help make me better.  You have a great spirit and I know that God will reward you with success in your true aspirations.  It was definitely a pleasure working out with you and I hope our paths cross again very soon.  With a Brother's Love, Jonathan

Jonathan Weaver, Richmond War Angels, Semi-Pro Football



Since my freshman year you have been by my side to offer help and encouragement.  Although I was young, I realized then how much your coaching would help me in all aspects of my life.  Now here we are again at the State Meet and I know in my heart that I would not be here had you not been in my life.  I could never express in words how grateful I am to have you as a coach but I hope you know that you have made an impact on my life in more than just running.  Not only have you made me physically a better runner but mentally a better person too.  Thank you for coaching me!  You are the best!

Valerie Starkey, mother of Joshua Diaz, Woodlands High School Football, Woodlands, Texas


Coach Rick,

Aloha from Hawaii! I just wanted to tell you “thank you and much mahalo” for your time that you were willing to give to my U10 girls team in Pearl City.  We are a good team and with your techniques we hope to become a very fast team in the near future.  The girls and I truly appreciate the lessons we got from you.  They have already been applying the proper arm swing techniques and staying on the “balls” of their feet and you can see the difference in speed.  I will do my best to emphasize all of your techniques.

I would like to stay in close contact with you so that when you come back to Oahu I would like to have another training session with our team.  Thank you again for giving time to our young team.


Ric Ramos, Head Coach, Blitz Futbol Club - Team ELITE U10



I just finished rugby season.  We screwed the pooch this weekend and lost our playoff spot.  Anyway, I'm going to "hang 'em up" now, but wanted to say thanks for everything.  If it wasn't for the training you gave me and the skills/drills I was able to attempt to continue on my own I believe I would have "fizzled out" athletically.  Instead I was able to give myself a finish I can be proud of. 

Last year being a finalist for the Southern California MVP in my division afforded me the opportunities to play for the "select" side and ultimately move up a division and play for Pasadena RFC where I held my own even though at 35 I was about a decade older than practically everyone I played with or against.  I started each game at MY position, scored multiple times, and felt I was an impact player.  More importantly I believe my teammates felt I was an impact player. 

I received several comments through the season about my ability to "run for an old man." Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate everything, and if there's EVER anything I can help you with please don't hesitate to ask.

Brian Wolf –High School Football Coach and Rugby Player


God will bless you for doing what you do for all these guys!

Thanks to you George is one step faster than most of the others!  Thanks Rick, I hope all is well with you and your daughter.


Tony Bushala, father of Speedburner George Bushala, Sunny Hills High Football


Hi Rick,

I want to give you an update on Brian's speed and quickness.  In his basketball game today his speed and quickness allowed him to hold his opponent to zero points and keep up defensively without having to cut across lanes.  He has reported a much quicker ability to rejuvenate than in the past.  Your direct instruction and training techniques have made a positive and obvious difference!  As always, thank you for the difference you make!!!!

Patrick Brown, father of ten year old Speedburner Brian Brown


Coach Hag,

A great clinic today at Sonora.  Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to work with our boys.  My son Kyle, improved his speed within the first half hour.  When you took the first water break he came over to me and excitedly told me that he knew he was faster, which was already evident to me while watching him during the drills prior to the ladder work.  Thanks again for a great day!

Jim Olson, father of Speedburner Kyle Olson



 I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for everything you have done (and are doing) for Steve. He had a great meet this weekend, scoring points in all 4 events and running his personal best in the 200 and 400 meter races. You have been very instrumental in getting him focused in the right direction (speed) and developing the physical and mental tools required to compete at a high level. I know the season is very young and we need to make sure he stays injury free….but we are very optimistic at this stage.

Thank you for taking him under your wing!  I’m glad I made that call to you back in November.

Jim Ferguson, Father of Dana Hills High Speedburner Sprinter Steve


Dear Rick,

Thank you for being such a major part of my success.  I really don’t think I would have had a football career without your training.  I also wanted to thank you for helping me through some of my more difficult times. You were always there to talk to and it meant a lot.  I look forward to keeping in touch with you from Carthage!


Speedburner defensive end Dillon Kaller, El Dorado High to Carthage College  in Illinois



Dear Coach,

My 11 year old son Zachary was in the recent Speedburners Camp at the Cleveland Browns Training Facility. Zack told me the camp was “incredible” and really feels his running skills have improved. I also had the opportunity to meet and speak with Rick Hagedorn about putting this all on DVDs. He said things were already in the works for the first DVD to be released. This is an excellent medium to learn from.  If there is anything that I can do to help promote Speedburners in Cleveland, please let me know.

Tom Dzurko, Father of Speedburner Zachary Dzurko




John’s spirit and attitude have been boosted since he trained with you.  Brother you have a serious gift from God!  He really respects you. I haven’t seen anyone impact him like that.

I appreciate you, the program and the impact you have already made with Charlie.

Hey Rick,

 I hope all is going well. Did you happen to see Dillan’s Stats on Max Prep? He has 30 Solo tackles and 36 assisted tackles, for a total of 66 tackles. He is averaging 11.0 tackles per game. It appears that your training has paid off. Thank you!

Brian Cazares, father of Speedburner LB Dillan Cazares of Yorba Linda High School Football



Thank you soooo much!  You’re a blessing!! I cant even explain the words to say for all u done for me. Love you much and I’m determined to get this going for me and my family and family like you that believe in me and give me that drive to keep working hard for something I want and its all with faith in God. I thank you again and for God bringing you as a great, supportive person in my life.

Speedburner Brandon Payne, former Arena Football player, Speed trainer, and now heading up BP28 clothing in Houston, Texas.



I have known Rick Hagedorn since 1999 when I worked at Brea Olinda High as the certified athletic trainer.  In that time, I observed him as he worked with high school kids on the football field, track and after hours with private lessons.  Rick is, in my opinion, one of the best speed coaches I have ever met at any level.  His expertise in the biomechanics, in all phases of the sprint, is outstanding and his focus on technique along with his ability to teach and correct makes him an exceptional coach.

As a certified athletic trainer, I am always concerned with the safety of drills that coaches implement in their workouts.  All the drills that I have observed in Rick's workouts have been very safe as well as effective.  So much so that I have adopted some of his drills and equipment for injury rehabilitation and prevention with the college and high school teams that I now work with,

Rick has a great personality as well.  Athletes have fun during their workouts while at the same time working hard and getting results.  This is why Rick draws the most elite track, football and basketball athletes from Orange County and the Southern California area.  Many Division I NCAA football athletes train with Rick during their holiday and summer breaks.

I can't recommend Rick Hagedorn and Speedburners enough for

those athletes that desire to improve their speed and quickness.
