Drew Lieberman, the founder and creator of The Sideline Hustle, graduated from Wesleyan University (CT) in 2013 with a degree in sociology. He played Quarterback for the Cardinals before injuring his throwing shoulder, which prompted him to transition into coaching.
After two years coaching the quarterbacks at Wesleyan as a student assistant, Drew was hired at the University at Albany as the Video Coordinator and Offensive Quality Control for the 2013 season. There, he worked for legendary coach Bob Ford, the architect of the UAlbany football program and the winningest active Head Coach in all of college football at the time.
In January of 2014, Drew was hired in a Player Development role at Rutgers University where he worked directly for Offensive Coordinator Ralph Friedgen and Wide Receivers coach Ben McDaniels.
After the 2014 season, Drew was promoted to Graduate Assistant, where he continued working with both the Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers.
Drew coached at Rutgers during the 2014 & 2015 seasons and helped produce 5 NFL receivers during that time.
Just before Signing Day 2016, Drew left Rutgers to return to his alma mater, Wesleyan University, to coach the Wide Receivers and pursue his Master’s Degree in Writing.
In his first season back at Wesleyan, Drew helped produce two 1st Team All-NESCAC Wide Receivers, Devon Carrillo and Mike Breuler. Carrillo, who tied the school record for touchdowns in a single season (17), was named the Connecticut State Athlete of the Year by the Connecticut Sports Writer’s Alliance (CSWA) for all divisions, becoming the first Wesleyan student-athlete to ever receive the award.
In 2017, Drew's second season at Wesleyan, his Wide Receivers made history, breaking every single-season school passing record (receptions, receiving yards, receiving touchdowns, completion percentage, etc.). Additionally, Senior WR Mike Breuler produced the most decorated season in league history, winning NESCAC Offensive Player of the year unanimously and New England Player of the Year for all D2/D3 schools.
In only 9 games Breuler finished with: 87 catches* - 1,167 yards* - 10 TDs.
(*catches & yards were school and league records!)
Just before that record breaking 2017 season at Wesleyan, Drew decided to start a podcast with some of his former players and coaches from around the country and The Sideline Hustle was born.
The following May (2018), Drew graduated from Wesleyan with a Master's Degree in Writing and moved to New Jersey to begin focusing on The Sideline Hustle full time. Shortly afterwards, he was hired as the Wide Receivers coach at Don Bosco Prep and quickly became the premiere route running coach & trainer in the northeast.
From 2018-2020, Drew built a training business of over 200+ college & high school athletes from around the world & developed six Division 1 players at Don Bosco. The Sideline Hustle grew to over 150,000+ followers across all social media platforms & Drew began working with dozens of NFL athletes as a mentor, trainer & film consultant. He has worked with players like Mohamed Sanu, Davante Adams, Mike Evans, Taylor Gabriel, Juwann Winfree, Mike Burton, Laviska Shenault, Quartney Davis, Gabe Davis & many more!
Going forward, Drew plans to use The Sideline Hustle platform as a vehicle to educate and inspire the masses, while also working with Wide Receivers & route runners.
