Exceptional Athletic and Academic Success

The only guaranteed results, athletic seminar in the country.

The program is unlike anything your athletes have experienced; is affordable; will have immediate, as well as long lasting impact; assist athletes to be more accountable; and will make a difference as far as winning—on and off the field.

7 ROSE BOWL TEAMS didn't get there without covering all aspects of the game. BUT, John Avianantos spoke to all of them to add that extra only he brings in his unique way.

OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY used John the night before their National Championship win against the University of Miami.

MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY used John the night before their Rose Bowl win over Stanford.

2 NCAA 1-AA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS in football were the best at their level. YES, John spoke for them also.

If you think you don't need John to come in and talk to your team, take a lesson from these very successful teams. They realized that even though their staff covered every aspect of the game, John could re-emphasize points in a little different way, add new innovative ideas, and take players to a new higher level of performance both on the field and in the classroom.

Read what Jim Tressel, the former Head Football Coach at The Ohio State University, has to say about what a dynamic speaker John Avianantos is.

"Coach Avianantos has spoken to my teams as far back as 1987 where he spoke to our Youngstown State University Penquins and helped forge our blueprint for success where we were able to play for 6 National Championships and win two of those. He made a tremendous difference.

Then when we came in 2001 to The Ohio State University, we had the great fortune of having John Avianantos speak before our National Championship victory in the Fiesta Bowl vs the Miami Hurricans; He spoke with us before our Kansas State Fiesta Bowl victory; He spoke with us before our Notre Dame victory in the Fiesta Bowl; He spoke to us prior to playing for the National Championship against the University of Florida; and also spoke to our team in the Pre Season for the2008 season.

He does a great job connecting with the audience, there's great audience interaction, he gives a tremendous message, he researches tremendously before meeting with the group, and he has truly been a difference maker in my 23 years as a head football coach.

We have used so much of his material. I consider him one of the difference makers in our successes. John Avianantos is a great one!"
