My Story

 

McDuffie Sports Performance exists to meet the needs of rotational athletes through a progressive training model. The creation of MSP converges the accessibility of online training with our unique training philosophy.

Drew McDuffie creates MSP with nearly a decade of experience training college football athletes, with a special emphasis on quarterbacks. As he steps into this new endeavor, he brings a fresh perspective on training athletes who have chronic wear and tear on the shoulder, hip, and spine. While remaining true to the principles of strength and conditioning, he utilizes non-traditional methods to fine-tune the entire athlete.

Drew began his strength & conditioning journey as a student intern with Clemson Football. He learned the value of earning trust and responsibility while putting in long hours honing his craft. With a biology degree and a curiosity for how the body works stoked by his father, a physician, he researched the shoulder, rotational athletes and their specific adaptations to imposed demands. He earned a promotion to graduate assistant at Clemson where he began working with quarterbacks, including first-round draft pick Deshaun Watson. While working with the Tigers, he completed a Masters in Athletic Leadership. Form Clemson, he went to Duke Football, under the helm of renowned quarterback developer, David Cutcliffe, who helped shape Drew's understanding of the mental and physical qualities that produce next level quarterbacks. While at Duke, Drew was responsible for the training of first-round draft pick, Daniel Jones. In his most recent venture, he has joined the Virginia Cavaliers Football program where he is encouraged to question norms, explore new methods, and help build The Model Program. 

Coach McDuffie holds strength and conditioning coaching certifications with the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the College Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association, and USA Weightlifting.
