Throw It Deep is an elite wide receiver and quarterback training academy based out of Chicago, Illinois specializing in year-round training + development. We have a proven track record training youth, middle school, high school, college, and pro quarterbacks. We have helped our athletes earn 60+ state championships and over $27+ million in scholarships.

Our quarterback training focuses on the proper footwork, throwing, and body mechanics as well as the mental and physical aspects of playing the quarterback position.

Our goal at TID is to educate and to create confidence on how to correctly play the quarterback position at game speed.



There are no other wide receiver training programs available that offer drills that are as effective in game situations as the ones offered through the TID. If you want to give your son the best fundamental football wide receiver skills training available, try one of our year-round group training sessions coached by Kofi Hughes.

Kofi Hughes played 4 years of Big Ten football at Indiana University where he was a two-time starting captain. He ranks eighth in yardage and tenth in receptions all-time at IU. Kofi spent time in the NFL with the Texans, Redskins, and Bears at wide receiver.

Kofi now specializes in all aspects of the WR position. Each of our sessions operate exactly how you would experience a Division 1 collegiate football practice. If you want to enhance your skills at route-running, catching the ball, and overall IQ, Kofi can take your game to an entirely new level.



The Throw It Deep staff evaluates and breaks down specific areas of each quarterback in our training academy. Our QB training starts from the ground up, focusing on laying a solid foundation to allow for balance + control. The misconception around the QB position is that you need to have a strong arm to throw the football, but that is simply just not the case. Our training philosophy is 100% based off of biomechanics that allow for maximum performance and minimum stress on the body. That is why our quarterback training, offered in the Chicago suburbs, is universal for all levels of football, from youth and high school QB training to college and NFL players.
