Quarterbacks including Matt Barkley (USC), Dayne Crist (Notre Dame), Terrelle Pryor (Ohio State), Jake Heaps (BYU), Blake Bell(Oklahoma), and 2011’s top quarterback recruits Cody Keith (National Prep Player of the Year, East Carolina University), Conner Preston (Southern Methodist University), and Daxx Garman (Oklahoma State) have all sought his training. Under the guidance of Coach Dickinson, youth quarterbacks Augie DeBiase (Jacksonville, Florida) and Grady Sullivan (Southlake Carroll, Texas) received National attention with their superior play during the 2010 season and respective invitations to play in the Junior Rank Diamond Bowl and the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl.

In 2008 and 2009 Coach Dickinson helped current NFL QB Rhett Bomar prepare for the NFL Combine and pre-season camp. Throughout this period he also worked with New Orleans Saints QB Chase Daniel, Tampa Bay Buccaneer first round draft choice QB Josh Freeman, and Dallas Cowboy QB Rudy Carpenter. Coach Dickinson served as the Offensive Coordinator and Recruiting Coordinator at several Division 1 football programs including: Tulsa (’86’89), Marshall (’90), Northern Illinois (’91-’95), Oklahoma (’83-85,‘96-’98), Tulane (’99-’00), and Central Oklahoma (’03-’06).

About DeBartolo Sports University Edward DeBartolo Jr., five-time Super Bowl Championship owner of the San Francisco 49ers and two-time Stanley Cup Championship owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, continues his vision of success through DeBartolo Sports University (DSU).

His 49ers teams were built with first class, Hall of Fame players such as Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Ronnie Lott, and visionary coaches such as Bill Walsh, George Seifert, and others. Regarded as the “players’ owner”, Mr. DeBartolo’s vision was to help athletes and coaches improve their skills, realize their talents, and maximize their potential through unparralleled development programs. We aim to help athletes and coaches improve their skills, realize their talents and maximize their potential. DSU is a sports educational organization, dedicated to teaching, coaching, training and empowering student-athletes to achieve their potential both on and off the field. DSU offers the highest quality events and training for athletes. We believe that regardless of the sport an athlete chooses to focus on, a set of very similar training fundamentals are necessary to succeed in all sports. Whether it is football, lacrosse, baseball, or basketball, DSU will provide athletes and coaches with first class instructors and first class events. DSU specializes in sport specific and position specific training and all of our programs were created as first class training and development programs for amateur athletes. The focus of DSU is to bring young talent to the forefront by offering developmental programs, designed to help amateur athletes and coaches reach their potential through coaching and mentoring from the pros. The training and development experts have not only played and coached at the highest professional level, but have trained some of the most successful professional athletes. With mentors like Joe Montana and Jerry Rice and coaches like Joe Dickinson, DSU offers athletes a once in lifetime opportunity.

What they have said… "Coach Dickinson is one of the best in the business when it comes to teaching the mental and physical skills needed to play the Quarterback position at the highest level. His work with me leading up to the draft and training camp got me ready for the big jump from college to the NFL. I will continue to work with him my entire career.“ -Rhett Bomar (NFL Quarterback) We are so thankful for what DeBartolo Sports has done, for the way Coach Dickinson has developed my son, from a character standpoint and an athletic standpoint, and without Coach Dickinson and DSU I don't believe Augie would be at the point he is today. I believe Augie has a great future and the only way we are going down that road is with Coach D by our side." - Mark DeBiase (Father of Quarterback Augie DeBiase) “Nelson learned more about the quarterback position at this Academy than any other camp he's attended. Professional critiques from veterans with extensive experience at the D-1 and NFL level are what you'll receive at this academy. With a coaching staff consisting of ex-NFL players, a Heisman finalist and professional combine trainers, DeBartolo Sports University demonstrates a genuine commitment to helping young athletes improve their athletic skill sets and personal character traits.” -Greg Fishback (Father of Nelson Fishback – Eastern Washington University QB)

“This is where the best learn how to be the best, from the best. If this one week is any indication of how much my son will improve, I can not wait to watch him develop as a young man and as a quarterback.” -Rick Purcell (Father of youth Quarterback Roman Purcell) “DeBartolo Sports and Coach Dickinson made the Saddlebrook Camp one of the best ones Daxx has ever been to! Coach Dickinson, Coach Loyd, and Coach McCulley are about as good as it gets for QB’s.” -Pat Garman (Father of Daxx Garman – Oklahoma State QB) “The DeBartolo name means taking care of players and doing it right. This camp was no exception” -Joe Pickert (Father of Quarterback Cole Pickert)
