Eye of the Tiger


The LSU Testing tables are great ways to get core data and each coach can test their programs and see what is changing and what is impacting their athlete’s performance. With current articles from Chad Waterbury and Mike Boyle are making people think about force vectors and jumping, my belief is that the data tells a story. Is the relationship positive or negative? Is it strong or weak? The truth of the matter is the data with the NFL combine, since 2006, the fastest guys are not always the ones with the best verticals. Broad jumps to some are considered horizontal vector evaluation tools and some great performers are often not crowned 40 yard dash kings. What I suggest is download the classic spreadsheet and start charting your own course, and see what relationships you find.
