The workout that “Shakes the Southland”

37 pax thought they were in high school again with a VQ “football camp workout” from Coppertone and EOB this morning. Both men kept us entertained while working us to #GetBetter #Better

As a lifelong Gamecock, it killed YHC to put this backblast together for two Tigers. But, hey, it was their VQ and somebody helped me with my first one. So I guess I’m just paying it forward. That’s what F3 is about. Brother helping brother. I’ll just be sure to shower extra-good today so I can rinse off this workout and all of this orange!

Magic Mike had the quote of the day though when he said “I havent’ sweat like this with Clemson in over 5 years!”

COT and Prayer


YHC never knew how hard a 10 yard pass (with no rush and no defenders) could be. Apparently the pax arms were dead though because SEVERAL throws looked reminiscent of Sammy Watkins ill-advised opening-drive pass last year. MANY didn’t even hit the tire at all – much less go through it (Did ANY go through the tire?). We also could’ve used Sammy’s sure hands on the receiving end out there, because several dropped balls led to extra merkins for the pax during the drill.
