Coach Butch Jones is getting a serious foothold down in Knoxville. The guy seems to have a motor that can hang at interstate speeds while the rest of us just make our way through the residential districts. As per usual, and despite a probable overfilled Google Calendar, Jones stopped in to the University of Tennessee Strength & Conditioning Clinic to share some coaching ideas and help motivate and encourage a great turnout at the clinic.
Meanwhile, Head Strength Coach Dave Lawson kept the clinic on pace while Asst Michael Szerszen kept a close watch on his wife who was about to give birth at any second! The speakers, who included ASAP Sports Science Director Ted Lambrinides, did a very nice job. And, this year, U.T. added former U.S. Marine Eric Kapitulik of THE PROGRAM who gave a very interesting talk on leadership development. Clemson's Strength Coach Joey Batson and Georgia Southern's Kyle Speer did super jobs of explaining how they train their athletes for their respective universities.
Also, while I was there, I caught the Vols in training....here's some of the photos!
