Tiger strength and conditioning coach Scott Meier seemed encouraged by some of the results from the annaul rite of fall practice.
"Definitely better than the last two years," he said. "In terms of team average for total points, this was the best team average since we moved to the new school.
|Ninth place finisher Athen Ashton clocked 4.82 in the 40-yard dash|
"The vertical jump was average as well. L-drill times look like they improved quite a bit compared to the last couple of teams, but the back squat numbers were the lowest they have ever been."
