The North Texas football team began its offseason conditioning program this week.
College football is a year-round endeavor these days for coaches and players.
Each team’s strength and conditioning coach essentially runs the ship between the end of the season and the beginning of spring practice.
UNT strength coach Zack Womack is in charge to a large degree until the end of the month.
It’s an important part of the year that is overlooked at times.
UNT has a group of players who could really stand to put on some weight or improve their bodies in general. Quarterback Mason Fine really needs to get bigger to hold up to the pounding he takes.
Running back Jeffery Wilson has yet to play a full season in three years at UNT due to injuries. The next few weeks will be big for him as well.
The video at the top of this post is some video UNT put out of the first workout of the offseason.
It is something of a UNT tradition to declare through every offseason and every switch of conditioning coaches that the latest offseason was by far the best.
I highly doubt this one will be any different.
But that doesn’t lessen the importance of these next few weeks as UNT prepares for spring drills.
