Coach Greg Holcomb has been privately training QB’s since 2009. Having founded Next Level in 2012, he understands the process of building the ideal quarterback to maximize both physical and mental potential. He has trained a long roster of high level collegiate, high school and youth quarterbacks. Coach Holcomb understands the importance of proper footwork, balance, posture, timing, sequence, positioning and rhythm to create the most fundamentally sound and mentally prepared QB's. Next Level QB’s continue to excel on the field each Fall and typically out-perform QB’s trained at other academies. Our QB’s are properly trained and developed to take the starting varsity Quarterback job as Sophomores in High School, leading some of the top programs to state titles each year. And it’s no surprise or a coincidence when our QB’s head off to quarterback some of the top collegiate programs at every level. The training and development are in the results.

Our mission

As the founder and lead quarterback instructor at Next Level QB's, Coach Holcomb is committed to helping young men achieve their goals at the quarterback position by providing the highest level of skills training and development for all ages and talent levels.

Coach Holcomb is a firm believer that the confidence and success playing the quarterback position directly relates to confidence and success in the classroom, socially and beyond school into the professional careers of these young men. And so our goal at Next Level is to build better quarterbacks and develop even better young men.

About Greg Holcomb

Greg Holcomb, Next Level Founder & QB Coach

Coach Holcomb has been training Quarterbacks since 2009, having instructed QB's at every level, from Division 1 collegiate, High School and at the youth level in various areas across the country. Coach Greg has trained collegiate quarterbacks and athletes from D1 programs Cincinnati, Michigan State, Middle Tennessee State, Tennessee, Eastern Illinois U., USC, New Hampshire, SMU, Virginia Tech, Arizona State, Oregon State, Louisville, Nevada, UAB, Yale, Butler U., Dayton U., Gardner Webb, Iowa State and Austin Peay. In Summer 2015 Coach Holcomb launched the Rise & Fire QB Camp, which draws some of the top QB's and skill position players in the country. Each year the camp attracts some of the highest recruited athletes with power 5 D1 offers.

Coach Holcomb's approach is simple. "When a Quarterback first arrives to be trained at Next Level, problem identification is half the solution" he says. "You start with the foundation and work your way up. If the foundation is firm and stable, then everything on top of it will be the same. We have to identify the critical variables and then make them efficient by repetition"

Coach Holcomb believes that great feet allow for a greater opportunity to have more fundamentally sound throwing mechanics. And that private 1-on-1 or semi-private training environment provides the ideal situation for the Quarterback to achieve the quickest results in the shortest amount of time. 

"Watching a young man develop as a quarterback is one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever been a part of," he says. "No other line of work provides that high level of satisfaction and fulfillment."

Coach Holcomb lives in the Chicagoland area with his family.
