Feed the Cats

About this speaker

Tony Holler is the track coach at Plainfield North High School. Tony retired from teaching chemistry after 38 years in the classroom and has 41 years of coaching experience (football, basketball, and track). Tony Holler is a member of Illinois Track & Field Hall of Fame and Co-director of Track Football Consortium along with Chris Korfist. Holler created the revolutionary "Feed the Cats" in 1999.

Tony Holler is the son of 47-year high school and college basketball coach Don Holler. Tony is the father of two successful coaches, Alec Holler (Edwardsville H.S.) and Quinn Holler (Andrew H.S.)

Tony Holler has diversified his “Feed the Cats” message for all sports and the classroom. Tony has consulted with the New York Yankees who fed the cats in their 2022 spring training. He’s also consulted with college lacrosse (Princeton, Georgetown, Penn, Arizona State, and Northwestern). Princeton made the NCAA Final Four in 2022 for the first time in 18 years with “Feed the Tigers”. Hundreds of high school football programs now use a FTC approach (aka “Sprint-Based Football”). 

Tony Holler has presented his content in 22 different states. In addition, he’s provided five full-day workshops overseas, four in England, one in Dublin, Ireland. Tony also does presentations at football and lacrosse clinics. In the past two years, Tony has done three Feed the Cats Seminars which include nine hours of instruction over a 24-hour period. FTC Seminars are a one-man show. 

Tony Holler’s Feed the Cats DVD was the #1 best-seller for Championship Production for all sports in 2018. It has been the #1 best-seller from 2018 to 2022 in the track and field category. Holler’s most recent content can be found at CoachTube, where he has, again, broken sales records. 

Tony Holler’s book, “Tired is the Enemy” is due to be released in 2023.
