"The goal is to have each athlete ready for their respective college strength and conditioning programs when they report in the summer as true freshmen. In addition to the performance program we implement, we take a look at each athletes manual and incorporate the exercises they will do with their strength coaches. We want them to be ahead of the game when they step on campus " said Performance Director Clif Marshall who worked with in coming freshmen athletes when he was on the staff at the University of Louisville. Athletes from the following Universities participated: Xavier Cincinnati Ohio State Miami Oh Akron Kent State Toledo Indiana Georgia Alabama Illinois Virginia Indiana State Tennessee Tech Tennessee Chattanooga Army Michigan State Emory Western Carolina Morehead State We wish all athletes the best as they report to their respective schools.
