Developmental Testing Numbers

One of the challenges for Cincinnati's strength and conditioning coach, Paul Longo, is to keep his players in top shape during the season. Here are some of the results from recent testing of those redshirting. All players were not tested in all areas.

Paul Longo and his assistant Jake Flint don't get many days off. They are constantly trying to get players in better shape in the off season and keep players from losing strength and speed during the season. In order to get a better understanding of how they and their players are doing, periodic testing is done. Those who are playing this season were exempt from testing last week, but those who are redshirting went through the paces. Here are some of the results from July to late November for scholarship players and a few walk-ons that impressed.
