Benton Harbor Football

_MG_0966.jpg    The Benton Harbor Pendulum Weight Room

Last November, Benton Harbor High School in Benton Harbor, Michigan had their first winning season in 26 years and the schools first ever trip to the state playoffs. Prior to 2015 they had 4 wins in 8 years. Elliot Uzelac at the age of 74 returned to coaching and had become their new leader. Elliot had been an assistant coach at the University of Michigan for Bo Schembechler as well as the Head Football Coach for Western Michigan, The United States Naval Academy and other stops at major Universities in his distinguished career. 

Arriving at Benton Harbor Elliot's first priority was investment in the kids. He made sure they had tutoring and overall academic success. Through the courtesy of donations he upgraded their facilities. Community donors supplied food, and the volunteer Tiger Moms prepared it. The athletes knew they were important and loved. He then raised the expectations and set goals.

The Benton Harbor story is so dynamic that it gained National media attention which included spots on ESPN and a surprise gift of a trip to Walt Disney World for the team from Good Morning America. Coach Uzelac, his staff, his athletes, the community all demonstrated the adage, 'that when you truly give of yourself you always get much more back in return.'

Don't Miss The Best Clinic Of The Year

In 2015 in the Journal of Medicine Science and Sport researchers found that if you suffer a concussion the risk of a lower body injury is twice as great for months, a year or even longer.  In 2016 this information was once again reiterated in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.

On June 25th and June 27th Kim Wood, the NFL's first full time strength coach provides a clinic that is designed to share techniques that will reduce sub-concussive forces that can cause head and neck injuries. Also, the clinic provides the most current research and newest techniques to train the head, neck and jaw from a wide array of professional coaches. 

It will be held in Pallet 23 Event Space, 3932 Spring Grove in Cincinnati. Pre-registration on footballstrength.com. The clinic begins Friday, June 24th at 7 p.m. and Saturday June 25th at 9 a.m. The cost is $25 which includes both sessions.

Bringing Energy into Your Program

In 1850 Alfred Lord Tennyson published , "Ring out, Wild Bells".  His words, 'Ring out the old, Ring in the new', have been a stated dictum of change for over a century.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,

And ancient forms of party strife;

Ring in the nobler modes of life,

Coaches are always trying to add freshness and excitement to their programs to engage their athletes and motivate them to succeed. The techniques used are vast and some work better than others causing the coaching staff to analyze, reflect and evaluate the athletes response to the method used. 

If you really want to motivate your athletes simply invest in them and you will see a response that you may not expect. When the Rogers Pendulum truck pulled up to Washington Court House High School, in Ohio the hydraulic lift, dolly nor the driver were needed. The excited athletes simply jumped up on the truck and carried their new Pendulum Head and Neck machine into their weight room.
