Now that you've weighed in with the weight - yes, that's a pretty good time at his age. Not if he was on the track team, but good for a baller! :supergrin:He is 5'10 about 165/170 ish... I am hoping he can add some weight!!!
he has never missed the A or B honor roll... of course, he is only a freshman though. However, he is off to great start in HS...
I am not sure he can put on 30 lbs of muscle by August... but is currently Squating 295, Clean n Press'n 200, and Benching 200---That's really good speed, but take my advice on this-
Do not get too caught up in the combine numbers game. If he wants to have a future playing football in college, he needs to learn to play the position! It seems like kids/parents/coaches these days place too much emphasis on shaving a few 10ths off of 40 times, often paying big money at training centers and such. A much more efficient use of time is learning to be the best at his position he can be.
Now get him weighing 200 and squatting 400lb for next season^^
Good numbers - a 200 lb C&P is nothing to sneeze at, especially at that body weight. His press and bench numbers seem odd, though (unless you are talking about a clean & jerk of some sort).I am not sure he can put on 30 lbs of muscle by August... but is currently Squating 295, Clean n Press'n 200, and Benching 200---
He already eats like a horse, but really doesnt add a lot of weight... I think maybe 10-15 lbs is more realistic by August... that would put him about 180-185 for his sophomore season...
He is at one of the biggest schools in our state, and they have a top 10 program. Since the season ended this year, they have been in what they call their "Bigger, Faster, Stronger" program... from what I can recall, they lift 3x per week, and work with the track coach a couple of times per week...have him continue to work out and LEARN the game. Find out what defense the coach plays and what responsibilities are for the backers.. If you are serious and can afford it this spring get him in a high intensity training site, they are everywhere, they focus on speed and footwork and explosive strength.
Eating( Lots) of good food working out and sleeping at least 9 hours a night is all he will need to put on muscle, given a proper foundation in strength training, and most competitive High school programs have strength coachs that are better than what colleges had 10 years ago..
Maybe I labled it wrong... but the lift from the ground and then press over the head... I thought this was called the clean and press... he can about 200 with that lift...Good numbers - a 200 lb C&P is nothing to sneeze at, especially at that body weight. His press and bench numbers seem odd, though (unless you are talking about a clean & jerk of some sort).
Don't forget the other big lift - deadlifts.
Just a few suggestions... buy him this book: www.StartingStrength.com. It may very well be the best $30 you will spend. It'll help him learn good form from a young age. Then google GOMAD. Also, make sure he keeps up his speed work.
They are probably a joke if not timed correctly... thats probably why most colleges will test the kids they are interested in, or observe the test being done before offering a scholarship...Not aimed at the OP, but 40 times are an absolute joke. I follow recruiting and find it hilarious that kids come out of college with four years of pretty elite training slower than they were in high school. Such and such recruit will "report" a sub 4.4 in high school but couldn't break a 4.4 at the combine or their college's pro-day 3-5 years later.
