Leo Goldman SWX
“Obviously have a lifting program that we have them on, and they do a really good job of getting after it. We have Coach McKillip and coach pimperton, basketball coach, they run a lifting program throughout the day. So when school is in session, those kids are definitely getting stronger and faster and more flexible and so forth. Since the shut down, it’s been a little bit more challenging. We do have a number of kids with weight rooms in their house, there has been some kids getting together and throwing a football in small groups. There’s also been kids getting together and doing some running, some Hill running, some resistance training, we have some bungee cords we’ve checked out of the weight room, so kids have been doing things.” Said Jory Thompson, Longhorns football coach.
