Scheduled for twice-a-week workouts over a three week period, the high-intensity conditioning classes will last three grueling hours each. Personal attention is guaranteed with each class limited to only 8 participants. You won't be able to hide from Yates, it appears. Classes are scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-6:30pm or 6:30-8pm. Sessions will also be available Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same time.
Linebacker wannabes can call the Huntington YMCA at (304) 697-7113 to register for the $50 classes.
Yates was the MAC's Defensive Player of the Year in 2001, and made it through NFL training camp with the Minnesota Vikings before being cut on the final day.
