If you want elite speed you have to recruit it. No conditioning coach in the world is good enough to make brooks ellis run a 4.4
I agree. Elite speed is born not made but hip rotation, flexibility and agility can be increased with proper training. I am not sure we are doing enough of that here. For instance, our OLM are horrible at bending, hip rotation and agility to block their man. Is it all talent or is some of it muscle building/agility training? Our LBs are really slow at covering and tackling in space so is it all talent or muscle building/agility training? I do not know but I hope we get it figured out.
Maybe we are not getting our monies worth out of our weight training and agility staff? These guys get our players more than the actual coaches so it is most important we are getting our best from them. Of course if I am not mistaken the Head Coach tells that staff what he wants and what he expects so maybe it goes back to the Head Hawg. I do not know but I hope they get it figured out. We need better flexibility and more speed on the field if we are to see a better product.
