Football Headlines, Highlights, and How to Start Your Off-Season

The football off-season is starting, while others are in the middle of a playoff push. We have had football athletes flooding back to the gym to begin their off-season programs.

There are many more who didn’t have a published article about them, but we know their stories, their character, and their successes. We know the work that went in behind the scenes.

We also love getting  messages like these from athletes…

“Hey Mark, tough playoff loss tonight. I want to thank you and the PSTS Team for helping me build myself into a better athlete physically and mentally going into this season. I often remember those Monday night sessions and what we talked about, doing what matters, complacency kills, etc. Remembering these pushed me to be at my best every day. I’ll be back in as soon as possible to pick up where I left off.”

*Sent 90-minutes after season-ending loss


“I also want to thank you for everything so far, I without a doubt have improved as an athlete and as a person. Without you guys who knows if I would even have a chance at visiting these colleges. I can’t wait to get back to PS this winter.”
