a coach know face to face and they need to
be legitimate reasons. We will take
attendance daily. If you have something to
do you can leave early.
• I don’t know what you can do, so this and 7
on7s is a way to show me.
• Positions heading into camp will be based on
weight room attendance
Spring Off-season
• If you play another sport, I encourage you
to find at least 15 minutes one or two days
a week to lift weights, either in PE or after
• You can not win football games being a
weak team
• If you are a skill player, I encourage you to
run track for speed development
How this works!!!
• You will max the first day of weights in the
Spring. You will then get a print out of your
lifts and weight you do. Everything is done
by computer and the computer pushes you
to achieve our stated goals.
Weightlifting successes
• When I got to Manassas Park in 2008,
only two guys benched 225 5 times and no
one could squat over 400 or power clean
• Before this past season, 12 people
benched over 225, 8 people squatted 405,
and 7 people power cleaned 225

Each time you reach your goal, you get a t-shirt,
