Eagles’ Zach Ertz starts virtual mentoring program for young tight ends
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is considered by many to be one of the very best in the entire league at his position.
Now he is using that talent, knowledge and experience to help create better tight ends among our nation’s youth.
According to Glenn Erby of EaglesWire.com, Zach Ertz took to Twitter to announce that he is starting a virtual mentorship program for young tight ends.
I am excited to announce the launch of @TeamProtege ✊🏼 After working with some of the best coaches in football including All-Pro TE Brent Jones during my high school career, I am looking forward to impacting the next generation of football talent. pic.twitter.com/tlIso1QwgO

As you can see, the program is called “Team Protege”. And this could help create some absolute stars.
Zach Ertz states that the program will be free for the athletes that are “chosen”. It is simple to apply too. All you have to do is fill out an application and “complete an act of service challenge”.
This is a fantastic idea. Clearly, the “act of service” will mean that the kids that want to be considered need to do good in their community somehow. It’s something to be considered at a point in history when so many aspects of society are in need of help, and moreover, rethinking.
So not only is Zach Ertz going to be helping tight ends become better players. He is going to help the kids become better people. And that’s certainly a great way to build up the next generation.
It is still unclear exactly what “Team Protege” will be doing. Zach Ertz says he will be coaching high school and College athletes to help them get to the next level.
Zach Ertz talks about coaching videos as well. It’s not clear whether there will be any true interactions with the athletes or not. Either way though, it’s certainly something worth looking into for any tight end that wants to elevate his game.
Zach Ertz is one of the best tight ends in football, so getting his knowledge and wisdom passed down to you for free is definitely something to check out for any young athlete.
