Stamford High has had an underground Strongman Program since... Forever. In that time we have had many students come through who continue training with me even after they leave - they go from students, to lifting partners and friends, to eventually - family. Nothing builds family better than pulling trucks and picking up Atlas Stones together. Hopefully many of you athletes will form these bonds of blood sweat and tears. (Yes, sometimes when you are pulling tacky off your torn up arms you cry.) And quite a few of them enjoy giving back to our strength community and Stamford High. Now that we are an official program, you should know some of the Black Knights Alumni who will be coaching with me from time to time (See Picture). You should also know that they do not have to be here. They are here because they want to give back to a program that gave so much to them, and some of them are just there for me - Family. We do for each other in the weight room, the Yard, and in life. These are just a few of the volunteers, there will be others stopping in from time to time. And when they speak you answer: "Yes COACH!"
Oh yeah, in case I haven't mentioned it... we pull trucks and have Atlas Stones.
We will be arranging that soon. Stay tuned --
Thank them always! Thank you Coaches! Thank you Black Knights Strongman Family
