Recently, I photographed the K-State football team during their early morning offseason strength and conditioning workout at the Vanier Football Complex in Manhattan, Kansas.
Players pushed through several sets of hang cleans, bent-over rows, push-ups, single-leg box squats, pull-ups and box jumps. Quarterback Daniel Sams and wide receiver Andre Davis caught tennis balls from an automatic tennis ball machine to improve their hand-eye coordination.
