Dear NC 15,
I like the fact that you are searching for advice for the upcoming season. Also, I like the fact that you play football. Talking with professional scouts, that is one of the first questions they ask players. Personally, I think football always made players mentally tougher, especially pitchers. If I were you, after football, I would sit down and make out a personal workout schedule. If you can, get a partner to workout with you. Furthermore, I would go to the coach and get some quantiative numbers that he is looking for 60 time, weight lifting goals, and pitching velocity. Remember, the off-season is like a savings account the more you put in, the more you can take out!! Below, I would address the following areas on a daily basis:
Upper/Lower Body Strength
If you work at this consistently, I think you should be able to reach the 80MPH mark, if you are currently in the mid-70MPH range. Another secret I would suggest is mixing in some yoga and pillotes exercises. These exercises really helped with overall body strength and flexibility. Send me a PM if you want a more detailed schedule. Good Luck.
