The Academic Gameplan is an all-inclusive educational program developed by former Fresno State associate head coach and current USC Associate Head Coach/Special Teams Coordinator John Baxter. The Academic Gameplan focuses on coaching, training, guiding and teaching students and student-athletes “the rules, fundamentals, and techniques of how to Win at the Game of School.” But these study skills are not limited to the classroom. These skills will also help these future leaders be competitive in the Game of Life.
