Item 1. Two new assistant coaches have been added to the Oakville Longhorns coaching staff:
Kevin played defensive back and linebacker for the Burlington
Braves and Hamilton Wildcats semi-pro team. Nic played linebacker/fullback for the Niagara Spears and Niagara X-men. Their coaching responsibilities will be announced in January.
Their levels of experience and intensity will bring the Longhorns to a new level.
Item 2. It may be December but this is when championships are won and lost. Lifting in the off-season is the difference between first place and last place. Football is a vicious sport. Strength is not an option. Being is top shape is not an option. Both are necessities for survival.
You canâ€™t get in shape during the season. If you wait for pre-season to start getting in shape, you wonâ€™t survive. Lifting and football go together like skating and hockey. Those who lift the most, win. Those who donâ€™t, wonâ€™t.
The true test of true desire is working out during the Christmas season while the majority are not. There are many levels of UNcommitted. Thereâ€™s ordinary uncommitted and extraordinary uncommitted. Being uncommitted is the biggest threat to the entire team. When your team calls for back-up, they expect someone to get there who has what it takes and who wonâ€™t back down.
Call for back-up, donâ€™t back down. Thatâ€™s the Longhorn mindset. Bring out your very best. Get in the best shape you possibly can. #keeplifting #SoulofaLifter
