I was responsible for...
Put together exercises for speed and agility as well as create core explosiveness and strength with the football kids through pluometrics and power lifts. Increase velocity of pitchers fastballs by increase range of motion of the shoulder joint using bands and weighted balls. Also increase strength in shoulder by using kettle bells Motivate kids to work hard
My greatest accomplishment was to be able to work with the kids and not help to make them greater athletes but to set them up to become better men and move them towards the next step in their lives
The greatest lessons I have learned is that high school kids can be hard to get to but as long as you give them trust and respect they will give it back to you and listen to what you have to say. Thus wanting to work towards what you make for them to get better
Advice for others...
Keep working hard it will pay off someday
