CLOCKED IN THE 4.1'S IN 40 YARD DASH...CLICK FOR ARTICLE
FROM ARTICLE: "The 2003 MWC sprint champion Nate Soelberg, slated to start at corner, ran a 4.16 in the 40. With three handheld timers, his first effort had others measure it at 4.17 and 4.19. Soelberg has spent the past month in track workouts to defend his conference title and qualify for the NCAAs.
In a race-off with Chris Hale, Mike Morris and Brett Cooper, Soelberg defeated receiver Cody Fonnesback, who ran a high 4.3 coming off ACL surgery last year. Morris, Hale and Cooper all ran 4.4s. Players said seniors timed by NFL scouts posted slower numbers than those timed by skill development coaches.
"Nate was really cooking out there," Kukahiko said."

"One of the biggest questions or myths out there in all sports: is it possible to coach or teach athletes how to run faster, move quicker laterally, and be more powerful and agile?  

The most fundamental aspect or element of sports is SPEED, and your athletes or teams success depends on it.

I was always the “fast kid” growing up all the way through high school.  I was lucky to be naturally fast; lucky enough that it made it possible for me to run track and play football at the collegiate level.  But being the “fast kid” could only take me so far when competing against other “fast kids” around the country.  I needed coaching and proper technique work to be able to compete at the level I wanted to.  I was able to train and teach my body the proper and most efficient way to run and compete at world-class levels.

No matter what your ability is right now, you can be taught mechanics and fundamentals that will help you exceed and be faster, move quicker, and be more explosive.  Come train at the Utah Speed Academy and get the advantage!"
