After long absence, athletes return to strength program

Last week was the first time in about 10 weeks that Scott Community High School coaches had face-to-face time with athletes as they began their summer weights program.

That’s a long time away from the weight room and, for many, a regular workout regimen.

But there’s no room for excuses in the weight room.

“The depth chart doesn’t care about coronavirus. I think that’s going to start hitting home with those kids who didn’t spend this time conditioning like they should have,” says strength and conditioning coach Todd Richardson.

Along with SCHS football coach Jim Turner, the two supervise the summer program for grades 7-12. Last week, the athletes had workout sessions at the track in keeping with social distancing guidelines. Starting this week, everyone is in the weight room as those restrictions begin to ease.
