(Dustin Fletcher) Carman Ainsworth H.S. Verbal commit (Northern Illinois University) “It’s deeper then football with 475. Those guys treat you like their own and will give you the shirt off their backs."

(Logan Pasco) Davison H.S. Verbal commit (Youngstown University),  “475 is a stepping stone to the next level, they showed me I can turn my dreams into reality. They helped to put me in position to go to college for free. 475 is the definition of family."

(Michael Fletcher) Michigan State University, "475 Elite teach you more than just football, helps turn boys into young men."

(Marcus Matiere-Bey) Ferris State University, “475 Elite has helped me expeditiously and effectively throughout the years on and off the field. They took me under there wing when I was in the 8th grade. I must admit I wouldn’t be the man and athlete I am today without 475. 475 Elite has taught me true life values such as; accountability, discipline, leadership, resilience, honor and understanding. I look at life with a purpose and more clear since I have been with them. We are a family here at 475 and their commitment to push students to be more than an outstanding athlete have honestly showed results."

(Ronald Wallace) Central State University, “I have known Coach Suthai Maxwell for the last 4 years and I can honestly say he is a true role model. From stressing the importance of academics, training, Coach Maxwell has helped me in ways every coach should, but don’t. No matter how well you think you preformed on the field, class room, or in life Coach Maxwell always challenges you to preform even better.  Many people doubted my ability to play at a high level on varsity football because I was “too small” or “too short” but as my defensive coordinator and position coach, Coach Maxwell has never uttered those words to me." 

(Cameron Reaves) University Michigan-Flint, “Coach Maxwell sacrifices his own free time to train, He does everything in his will power to help us become better men. Not many people are like him, what separates him from other coaches is his commitment to the youth. He is always taking us on different recruiting trips no matter if the college is out of state or nearby, his commitment to us encourages me to push harder."
