The Delaware state football team has officially started it’s spring season. The process goes: rigorous training for a couple months, then smoothly transitions to on field practice in late March 25th.
With a new weight lifting coach and new trainers, the hornets have a very promising 2020 fall campaign. The hornets have acquired a weight lifting coach that has numerous amount of certificates for sports training and has a great amount of experience. Coach Riedel, who came from the university of Ohio State, has had great success in a wide variety of sports in the past and he has brought that aspect along with a winning mentality.
Some football players on the team had nothing but great things to say about their future here as a Hornet. Carrington Jones, a junior defensive lineman on the team said, “the way our new weight lifting coach attacks every aspect on your body and focuses a lot on the small things.” The team began lifting Wednesday January 14th .
Depending on the day, the team will do a different workout, but the schedule usually goes in this order: full body stretch, core workouts, upper or lower body then arms or back. Junior defensive back, Jawain Granger, a future team captain commented “the new weight lifting coach and our coaches prepare us for success on and off the field. Both sides want us to grow as men and want nothing but the best from us.”
The hornets are looking good this spring and are hoping to sting the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference this upcoming 2020-21 season.
