Dylan Spits That Hot Fire At the Line

Dylan Colussi is known around here as that mini-mite 7th grader who never warms up with the group, but prefers soccer on the turf or, better yet, using the session people as pretend defenders to dodge on his way to lay-ups. It's a better warmup than Mr. Carey does, so I can't complain.

Anyway, he's been working on his free throws a lot lately because he's been in a state tournament for 7th graders. Yesterday was the championship round and he finished in 3rd. place. In an email, Coach Casey said,  "He finished only 1 free throw behind the first place winner and missed out on second place in a triple overtime tiebreaker."

Good work youngster!

Beast Mode: NuNu and Dylan

During yesterday's max effort deadlift session we did some different stuff with each class based on what you all were looking like. The five thirty and six thirty ended up doing some 1 rep max work (more to be posted soon), and two of the most impressive kids were Summer 2018 rookies NuNu and Dylan.

NuNu topped out at 125 lbs. and Dylan at 85 lbs. - both massive prs. Here's how they looked.

Pic of the Week: Mobility Extra

This morning at the mobility session, Noah needed a little extra help on his double lacrosse ball mobility and we were finally able to put Dylan to good use.

Athlete of the Week: Dylan Colussi

Murley was campaining all week about getting this award, and Ashley Fry had a great start to the week, but the Athlete of the Week for the 4th week of Summer 2018 is Dylan Colussi.

Q: Who had the 5 best workouts this week?

A: Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan.

With the rookie crew it's tough to gauge workouts based on times or rounds because most of them either 1) forget to count rounds/keep track of time or 2) are doing the workout for quality. This week they were challenged with the heat on multiple workouts, and Dylan's running and cleans is what stood out. He moved from 5 to 10-lb. dumbbells as the week progressed (starting with 5s on Monday's Hotshots and finishing with 10s on yesterday's Jurassic Workout) and is showing good Pose technique on runs up to 400 meters. On Tuesday, while the morning session did a modified squat test, Dylan worked on his back squat for the first time and ended up looking pretty good with the 15-lb.bar. Then for good measure he did the 2-min dumbbell squat test after his lifts were done and beat his rival, Dakarai, by 40 reps.

Our rookie crew is slowly developing this Summer - similar to last year - and Dylan is one of the most consistent ones. This week was a great example of that. Keep it going youngster!
