Interesting note, when Drennon was hired at LE in 2000...word is another particuliar coach applied. Since then, that coach has won 7 state championships.

L-E hired Pat Brady and their 2nd choice was Surratt.

Not sure what you mean by football readiness. All athletes should have mandatory conditioning and weight lifting sessions regardless if they are playing football. It will only make them better. 

There is certain lifting that you do not do if you are a baseball player during baseball season.

I get what you are saying but some things are not appropriate at a given time.

Thanks for helping me prove my point, a lot of issues at Hallsville! God forbid the guys do some work to develop better athleticism. Guess you should talk to some college guys about their lifting programs and get back with me

If a school has a strong weight lifting and conditioning program, then all sports are going to benefit. So much of HS sports is having confidence, and having a strong weight lifting program develops that for the kids. PG baseball has always lifted, even when Craig Jones was on staff. I have never heard of any limitations or restrictions on the PG baseball players. In my opinion, Hallsville is what PG was prior to Gibson. Gibson incorporated a rigouros strength and conditioning program in the summer. Once the kids bought in, their confidence improved. Once you get the confidence and belief from the kids, good things tend to happen.

I heard that also. And makes sense, he was in town at Texas High at the time right? Drennon was on staff at LE I think?

Cotton84 posted that is was Pat Brady, not Drennon. Cotton84 seems to know his stuff so he is probably correct. Either way, it is interesting how one potential hire could had possibly altered two schools.

I told y’all to ask them. They would tell you.  How dare a coach want his athletes to lift weights?  It’s the culture there.

+1000

This hits the nail on the head! I wish the school I follow had  a better weight lifting and conditioning program for the kids there now! Talented group of kids that are missing this exact thing! Could do them a world of good and put them over the top in my opinion. But this goes for any school whether you have talent or not.

No one said that Hallsville had or has a poor weight lifting program.  Context is everything.

How many of the kids that start out in Freshman FB stay in the program until their Sr. year. Word on the street is they go play small ball

That was the case early on as I understand it.  Not sure about this past year.

That is a fast way to #### of some baseball parents.

"How dare you make my kid lift."

False

Baseball players cannot do squat within 3 days of a game. That is what this kid's Dad who coached the little league team in a tournament one time told me. He has to know what he is talking about right?

No doubt. I'm sure he took his team to the "Little League World Series."

Funniest think I have ever heard, thanks for the laugh.

Especially since MLB player do full workouts(including squats) in the morning and play games that night.

Exactly, sounds like of a bunch of baseball "specialists" to me. 

Just sell the weight room equipment. They don't need in Hallsville.
