The start of preseason practice this week means that the Bulls have concluded another strenuous off-season conditioning program under the guidance of USF Strength Coach Ronnie McKeefery.

"We try to challenge the team mentally and physically through the off-season conditioning program," said Coach McKeefery. "We want them to know that after going through winter, spring and summer, they can say I put my time in,  "I can handle what ever you throw at me."

Entering this pre-season the Bulls are abundant with talent, and the position battles will be a lot more competitive then it's ever been in years past. In every position on offense and defense; there are guys battling it out. "They're not just out there working," said McKeefery. "They're out there trying to impress and earn a spot."

In 2009 the Bulls graded out better statically in every category; Team strength, team speed, team power, and especially team athleticism. That all comes from the work that Coach McKeefery and his strength & conditioning staff instills on the team. "This summer I challenged the guys," said McKeefery. "And many of the guys stepped up."
