CFFB in High School


I just thought I'd send you a progress reports on one of my players.  2 years ago, this kid was a skinny freshman and came up to train with me during the spring. He couldn't do a push up or squat to save his life.  Three years later, here he is as a junior. 

Squat - 415
BN -255
DL -425
PC- 245

And he is unreal on the field, already the best LB in the state of Utah and what is cooler, is I get him for another year. 

CFFB did him right.

You do all the hard work up in Utah. You, Shane, and the boys were early adopters of the program and it is awesome to see the progress your kids have made.

Congrats and best of luck on the season.

    Are you referring to ryley?! I had the opportunity of doing speed training with him this past off season, I trained him at BASICS down in Salt Lake. Heck of an athlete, and I loved hearing about the way you guys implement crossfit football up there. Definitely helped create a baseline of strength and power!
