Youth Gridiron Academy would like to congratulate our very own "Coach Jay," Jaden Tocci-Rogers, on being chosen to join the #1 ranked 7-on-7 football club in the country! Jaden has been a valued asset to our organization as he has volunteered over 150 hours, as a student/athlete of Ocean City High School, coaching and reffing the kids in our NFL Flag Leagues for 5 separate seasons over the past 3 years. Often chosen as our "Kids' Choice" favorite coach, he has made a positive impact on our athletes and community by building upon our members' knowledge and love of the game, fundamental skills, athleticism, teamwork and confidence through his laid-back yet very competitive leadership style focused on positive reinforcement, good sportsmanship and going all out, all the time.
About Next Level Greats
Next Level Greats Football Club is a development league based out of Voorhees, NJ. State and regional recognition has been standard for the Next Level Greats 7-on-7 competition and football training program since its founding a few years ago. But the organization that has become a hothouse for the growth of many of South Jersey’s top prospects took a significant step forward when one of NLG’s 18U teams captured the National Championship last June at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL.

The Next Step...
Coach Jay's goal is to attend college for business and finance and to be able to play football at the next level. By committing to Next Level Great's rigorous training and competition schedule, he's one step closer. Since its inception in 2013, NLG has had 177 players earn full scholarships to college. Their players become better football players, better men in their communities and go on to college.
This year alone, their tournament schedule includes traveling to Florida twice, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Tenessee and multiple stops in the tri-state area to compete, as well as over 20 college tours along the way!
