Tom Creguer (Cray-jur) grew up playing football like most kids back in the day, in their yard, and then learned from a dad-coached youth league. Tom went on to play Running back and Linebacker in a small farming community in the "thumb" of Michigan. Receiving only letters from a few D3 programs and not being recruited to play College football he walked into his future Head Coach's office in the summer of 1989, introduced himself and graduated a Co-Captain 6 years later on a Mid American Conference Championship team. While in College, Creguer joined the United States Marine Corps Reserve, got activated and served our Country in Desert Shield/Storm until returning to complete his degree and eligibility.
Upon graduation, he turned down his commission as a Marine Officer, finished his reserve obligations while started a career teaching and coaching in High School. He started as a volunteer assistant and quickly fell in love with all facets of the College Coaching game. He quickly transitioned into many Collegiate roles including: Director of Football Operations, Recruiting Coordinator, Special Teams Coordinator, Equipment Manager, Wide Receivers coach, whatever the program needed to be successful. Successful they were, Northwood University won 3 GLIAC Championships and made it to the Final 8 in the NCAA tournament in the first eight seasons Coach was involved.
While transitioning back to High School teaching and coaching, Coach Creguer watched his high school football team literally fumble its season away the third year in HS and he knew he had to do something. What he did was to develop an innovative training tool which is now being lauded by coaches and players in the National Football League as well as the College programs across the Nation — and which is now changing the game at all levels for good.
