I thought coaches could not have anything to do with off season workouts?
Spring practice ended at 5:35 p.m. on Saturday when the final seconds ticked off the clock at the Kay Yow Spring Football game. Less that 48 hours later, however, the Wolfpack squad was back out on the field at Carter-Finley, taking the next step towards accomplishing its goal of winning a championship in 2012.
It wouldn't seem that carrying telephone poles and performing poolside planks would have anything to do with that goal, but Tom O'Brien believes that the first step towards a championship is to develop leaders and to work together as a team. That's why he asked Marine Special Ops officer Major Eric Kapitulik of "The Program" to put the Wolfpack through his "Judgement Day" workout.
"I think that the biggest thing our players take from this is for each man to realize that the guy on his left and the guy on his right is more important than he is," said O'Brien. "To realize that to be successful as individuals, they have to help their teammates be successful."
