Big Night in WCAC Basketball


Amongst the big games taking place in WCAC tonight. A cool double header with the Bishop O'Connell Knights looking to establish a rhythm as we get closer to the tournament, taking on the Good Counsel Falcons who have more than a puncher's chance of being the WCAC champion in late February.

Followed by #1 Dematha taking on those pesky Gonzaga Purple Eagles at AU which has become the unofficial home court for the Eagles.

It is going to be rocking in the Nation's Capitol tonight. If you can't make it, US Sports Radio will be bringing you live play-by-play of both games with a bonus HD Audio feed available so you will get bruised listening to the elbows and dunks at AU tonight. Coverage starts at 5:25pm EST at www.ussportsradio.com

American 'Footballers' February is the month where you get really serious!



Unless you are getting ready for the Super Bowl, you as a football player are or should be deep in your preparation for the 2010-2011 season. It is my deepest hope that you are using the month of February to push your training and your bodies (within reason and always keeping safety first in mind) to the absolute limits. This should be where your squats, deadlifts, Olympic movements, and other lifts are attempted at their max. This is where you sprint, box jump, hurdle, zig-zag, until at times meals are recycled the hard way! You paint that picture.

As the saying goes: "champions are built in the off-season." Mark Bendorf two time state champion at Robinson High School In Fairfax Virginia once told me that which I hold true as a strength coach today. "We have one many a game in the weight room" For those of you who are not in a structured strength program for any number of reasons. (Time, resources, economic, etc.) There are many ways of getting your program going so that you can best help yourself, your team, coaches, parents (by being in condition so that you have the opportunity to avoid injury), and the list can go even further.

The internet has not only provided a pathway to the best sports blog on the planet; but plenty of resources many free to help you get into a good strength and conditioning program. If you are a self starter with a little smidge of discipline you have a chance to physically get into game shape by start of training camp. You are certainly welcome to visit the US Sports Online Strength and Conditioning System for additional information.

I look forward to seeing you "Jacked Up" and holding a championship trophy in December.

An Ode to well trained sports franchise owners...

Let the record show that the two teams playing for the 'Big Game' as the National Football League does not let anyone who is not on their payroll to use the phrase 'Super Bowl' oops! Anyway the two teams playing for the championship are not only the top two seeds but seems as though they are two team with the least visible owners.

Funny don't know if there is any direct correlation as Jerry Jones' Cowboys got close enough with a guy in Mr. Jones who is no stranger to being in front of the camera or microphone.

If your team is serious about being in position of a championship, they should possibly work on creating a culture similar to those in New England, Indy, NO, Pittsburgh, and others who could play in the Big Game next year.

The two most visible owners in Oakland and Washington may want to go to Owner's school to figure it out. In retail if you are lagging in performance you are given training to help improve your performance. I know owning a sports franchise is a different matter, so the training would have to be voluntary. As my boi Reverend Solomon would say. "Not a sermon, just a thought."
