Standout in the Weight Room

Greg Olsen, a junior-to-be tight end, was the top performer in the spring according to head strength and conditioning coach Andreu Swasey.

"The guy that sticks out in my mind is Greg Olsen," Swasey said. "This is really his first full season that he has had. He had shoulder surgery coming in the first year (2004) and broke his wrist during the second year (2005). So this has been his first full spring lifting and I think he has benefitted from that."
