Ward coming into his own in the weightroom!
Posted Sunday, March 10, 2013 by Ed Dalton
When I first arrived on the job at McGuffey more than a year ago I identified Ryan Ward as an athlete with strength potential. I remember when I went and trained with the Nebraska Strength Staff in the 90's and they said identify athletic potential and make them weightlifters, don't try to make weightlifters football players. I never forgot that and Ryan Ward is a great example of that theory. He now regularly squats over 400 pounds and will bench over 300 by early summer. In a year I would say his strength totals have gone up 50 percent do to his dedication. It is for his dedication that Ryan Ward has been named this week's McG Football Player of the Week! Stay focused on greatness!
