Note From The Editor: If you are a parent of an 8th grade through 12th grade athlete or your son is already going to play on his high school’s Varsity or Junior Varsity team this coming season, then please make sure you all watch our presentation. It could be very beneficial to your futures. As you know, football continues to grow and reach new heights in popularity, especially right here in East L.A. There are now many Spring football activities going on all over the community, from high school“7-0n-7” passing leagues, to Pop Warner youth speed camps and sign-ups, to Community College speed, strength, and agility camps. Coming soon, prepare yourselves to Get Better with the East L.A. Expert Speed Training & Football Combine, scheduled for Sunday, April 26th at East L.A. College, from 1 pm – 4pm.
In our field production, we focused on the recently held East Los Angeles College (ELAC) speed camp performed in tandem with Gold Medal Excellence, (GME) an All-Sports Training & Conditioning Company. Our coverage also gave us some extra time to catch up on the progress that new Head Football Coach, Eric Marty has made since he took over the position in early January. His fresh start is just over 100 days old, but he has been working diligently in building his Coaching Staff and practicing nearly 75 committed players who will compete for a spot on this season’s roster.
The speed camp was led and conducted by GME’s owner, Chris Asher, a proven elite and world-class athletes’ trainer. He has worked with the talents of professional players such as Sergio Santos, L.A. Dodgers, Danny Putnam, Oakland Athletics, Trevor Ariza, former L.A. Laker and now Houston Rocket, Antonio Cromartie, New York Jets and Marcus Cromartie, San Francisco 49ers. His accent and focus is to instill and instruct all levels of athletes with the proper mechanics and techniques of running with speed and explosiveness as they develop their game. Come out and experience this Camp with a world-class proven winner and trainer, Chris Asher!
