Raising money through a LiftAThon

Head Coach Justin Berna has a nice team at Avila (NAIA in Kansas City, MO); but he knows that to take them to the next level they have to get "Bigger, Faster, Stronger". 

Next week his guys will participate in their first ever Spring LiftAThon. Not only is this a great way to get the players more excited about competing in the weight room; but this will also help the program raise funds from, and awareness within, the local community. 

Nice video, created by one of the players (Trey Swager, aka "T-Swag"...ok, we just made that last part up; but we're hoping it catches on).

Another impressive D-III video out of Ohio

Denison University, a D-III school located in Granville, Ohio sent us a creative video highlighting their off season workouts and their players getting after it in the weight room.

The staff has the Big Reds doing a little bit of everything, from tire flips to  to some stuff you only see during strongmen competitions. 

Impressive stuff.

Jerry Kill: "I didn't have to scream and yell"

Jerry Kill and the Gophers opened up with their first spring practice of the year yesterday, and Kill was impressed with the progress they have made since last year.

Most importantly, Kill mentioned that he didn't have to "yell and scream to get them to hustle or get players in the right place". Kill added that he thought there was a lot of good coaching and teaching going on at practice, and the first year players are catching on quickly.

Always fun when they mic up the offensive coordinator

Mike Nesbitt, in his first spring as the new offensive coordinator at Houston, got mic'd up for a recent practice and the theme was the tempo.

Nesbitt said that it was a normally structured day, and the goal of the fast tempo is to get to the point where they can" play longer and harder than anybody". You can tell that this isn't a new concept to the players, because everytime they switch a drill they're running with a purpose.

Great D-III video

Mount St. Joseph, a D-III school located in Cincinnati, has been rolling out some great videos all offseason covering everything from interviews with head coach Rod Huber and the rest of the coaching staff, to their offseason efforts in the weight room.

Their most recent addition may be the best one yet. See for yourself.
