High School Football Run Faster Epiphany
I was pretty athletic growing up. I actually was the faster bigger kid in my little leagues and I basically destroyed all the other youth teams. The one thing that changed all of this was that I stopped growing and everybody else caught up with me. I ended up being average and now in high school, being in 9th grade everybody was older and I had to start putting in work.
A couple things that I did was I would lift weights at the school weight room and I joined the school track team. I did these 2 things in order to build my body to the level of hopefully making the varsity football team.
This really helped me and my speed and endurance increased. I played junior varsity and a little varsity that year. My 10th grade year, I ended up starting on my varsity team and played very well. I had success early and I was supposed to be all everything my junior year and it HAPPENED. I got lazy and did not do the things that helped me the previous year. I did not run track that year, and I barely did my weight room workouts.
That junior year was so embarrassing, and I even contemplated quitting football. I was a running back and I would get caught by slow linemen after I would break loose. I couldn’t even score any long touch downs because of a lack of speed training, and couldn’t break any tackles because a lack of strength and endurance.
I learned a valuable lesson that year as my rivals joked on me being a varsity flop….You must work, and continue to do it in order to be successful. You must work and search for ways to improve everyday. That is how I was able to make it to the NFL and play for 3 years in a league that is brutal to get there and even harder to stay.
I tell all my students now that you must be 2 things to have a shot to make it to play professional sports. Turn your body into a machine by working in the weight room and to Run Faster!!! Run Track and Do Dr. Van Such’s Run Faster Program which is below!
