Two things Coach Crosby believes every player can learn through football: 1) confidence and 2) structure. Crosby has been those those tenets in young athletes with great success.
Al Crosby, Neumann Goretti Catholic High School Football Head Coach and founder and president of the Philadelphia Black Coaches Association, was nominated by the Philadelphia Eagles for Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year.
Coach Crosby currently has 11 former players playing in the NFL, including one of his favorites, DJ Moore, who was drafted in the first round by the Carolina Panthers in the 2018 NFL draft.
Aside from seeing his former players finding success in the NFL, the most rewarding aspect of coaching for Crosby is seeing smiles on young faces and seeing relationships being built through the game of football.
At NFL Alumni Hero Camps, Crosby notices that “often times, you see a kid that is very shy become very comfortable after a day or so.” A coach that Albert Crosby draws inspiration from is Alabama’s Nick Saban. Crosby has spent time observing Saban’s coaching style and admires the way that Saban is able to guide young men. “He gets to know each and everyone of his players and knows their individual strengths and weaknesses. He knows how to change up his communication style to align with what is best for each of his players. He is a proven master.”
