Union Grove Middle School
8th Grade – Football Players
I hope you guys are doing well… My name is Coach Smith, and I just completed my first season as the Head Football Coach here at UGHS. We finished our 2020 Season, making a trip to the 1st round of the Class AAAAA State Playoffs.
I came to Union Grove High School from Sandy Creek High School, where I coached for 7 years, and won 2 State Championships.
Also in my career, there have been over 120 players that I have coached that went on to play college football, including over 50 athletes to Division 1 universities, and 3 are currently playing in the NFL with the Saints, Steelers and Chargers.
Our players did see the difference between our region and the South GA region where there was a HUGE SIZE and STRENGTH advantage for our opponent last week during our State Playoff game…
We are inviting ALL 8th Graders who are interested in playing football at UGHS next year to come to our weight room after school and lift weights with some of our varsity football coaches.
We will perform a temperature check each day, along with a standard COVID questionnaire each day that you participate.
The workout will last approximately 40-45 minutes. So PLEASE have rides to get you by 5:00 each day.
Workouts will be conducted 4 days a week, Monday’s – Thursday’s (on days that school is in session).
Early on, we will be focusing on correct lifting technique, making sure that each athlete is using proper form.
Some of the major lifts that we will be focusing on are:
- Front Squats
- Power Clean
- Bench Press
- Back Squats
- Incline Bench Press
