New-found life in UConn football

With an earlier-than-usual spring schedule, and a new strength coach, UConn football is undergoing a culture shift in year three of Randy Edsall’s second stint in Storrs.

“Having the schedule that we had, I think it’s been very beneficial to us. You can see it, their bodies, they’re getting stronger,” Edsall said. “That was one of the objectives that we had by moving spring practice up as early as we did, so we can get more time in the weight room.”

With the team coming off a historically bad season, due to a large number of undersized and untested freshmen getting a lot of first team reps, strength was a priority. Thanks to the program’s new strength coach, Matt King, the results speak for themselves.
