This week started off with some bad news concerning one of our athletes. D.J. was enjoying going through some baseball drills with his friends, when a freak thing happened and his arm was broken. The next day, he had to endure surgery to put a rod and screws into his arm. We were thankful to hear that everything with his surgery went well and he will be back at it in no time. We have never met anyone tougher than this young man, and ask that everyone keep him in your thoughts as he recovers.
Rylie (10) began work with us this past week in preparation for fall baseball. Even though he is a Vanderbilt fan, we still like him. 🙂 He has brought an incredible passion to his sessions, and loves to learn. The video below is a lateral let-go drill that works on his lateral strength/footwork as well as his first step movement to sprint. The next 6 weeks for this young man will be special to watch.
Savannah (11) has turned her training toward fall soccer. We have had the privilege to work with her for over 7 weeks now, and have grown to appreciate her drive. She shows up every session ready to work and leaves with nothing left in the tank.
These are just a couple of the Nashville area athletes that we are privileged to work with on a weekly basis. They are learning not only how to get faster, quicker, and stronger at their sport, they are gaining confidence in themselves that is going to benefit them for years to come. To be a small part of that is incredibly humbling.
