There are still about four weeks left of individual work and off-season strength and speed training before Thanksgiving break is upon us when all team work shuts down until January. Part of the fun of strength training is being able to show off the hard work that has been put in during a training regimen. Earlier this fall, while still in fall practice, the team had such an opportunity in the SFL Fitness Challenge Series. In this event, all three teams had their chance to flip a tractor tire from the left field foul line to a distance of 150 feet away and back. The team with the fastest time would take home the belt.
