Strength and Conditioning, Part VI

In our final installment on summer strength and conditioning, the top five forty speeds are released along with an overall assessment of speed at UNC.

The top five forty speeds on the UNC football team are:

1)   Michael Waddell, Jr. -- 4.28

2)    Dexter Reid, So. -- 4.37

3)   Willie Parker, So. -- 4.37

4)    Andre Williams, So.  -- 4.37

5)    Kevin Knight, Jr. -- 4.41

The above times are averages of forty speeds timed in different settings.   Coach Connors: "Looking at those times, I have trouble believing them myself -- but we have some pretty fast guys on this team."

Connors added, "We are in a position now to have to make fewer excuses because of strength and conditioning."

Connors said that many Tar Heels, "gained a step," in linear speed this summer.  Among those he named were Will Chapman, Kory Bailey, Chesley Borders, David McIntosh, Quincy Monk, and Willie Parker.
