In 2000, Mike Gottfried, a former collegiate coach and ESPN college football analyst had the vision to create Team Focus, a comprehensive community outreach program aimed at providing mentors and positive role models to young men without a father figure in their lives.
Team Focus has grown from one summer camp in 2001 with approximately 50 young men to a year-round Wisdom Center in Mobile, Ala., 10 summer camps across the country and over 3,000 young men. These camps aim to teach academics, athletics, social skills and values. In addition, the first national Team Focus Rally for all team members was held in June 2006 in Mobile.
Gottfried’s vision and drive for the program is based on his own life experiences, “Growing up without a father around and knowing what that feels like, I have a desire to provide a place for young men to come and be encouraged, motivated and challenged.”
“Nick Saban and his wife Terry believe in what Team Focus is about and have become huge supporters of our organization and the young men involved here. We can’t thank them enough for continuing to support this event and these kids”, said Gottfried.
