Hey Paul! How have you been lately? I haven't signed on this sight in a while and I found myself reading a lot of your old blogs. Lots of good stuff in there man. I really liked the "Quarter Horses or Mules" blog a lot and agree with the message it sends. Anyway, I hope you are doing well over at Ole Miss and keep up the good work.
I am currently looking for a GAship. I recently heard through Coach Pollard of Georgia State that you might have an opening down at Ole Miss. I was excited to find out that you trained around and had a great friendship with my girlfriend, Mo Isom, at LSU for a of couple years. She had great things to say about you personally and professionally. I graduated from Colorado State with a Bachelor's of Science in Health and Exercise Science and did my student internship with the Air Force Academy football team last season. I then worked with them this past off season as a volunteer coach to gain more experience since they do not offer GAships to non-military. I hope to hear back. Thanks.
I really like your post about in season training. It makes me sick to my stomach that strength and conditioning coaches are afraid to lift heavy and hard during the season. If they don’t lift heavy in season the student athletes will begin to detrain and get set up for injuries. When strength coaches do not train hard in season what is the point of lifting hard in the off season. Best of luck to you and your staff down at Ole Miss.
Congratulations on the Bowl and 12 game wining season. A lot of credit goes to the coaching staff as it should. But strength coaches take great pride in that as well. You helped form that foundation well before the season started.

“There's difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something you do it only when circumsatnce permits. When you're committed to something you accept NO excuses, only RESULTS.”
I hope all is well for you and your family. I wish you all the very best as you continue to grind during the season. Keep the guys going. I look forward to catching up with you very soon. GOD BLESS
Ya we should talk sometime soon, I know you guys will be busy in camp, just as we are. Ill shoot you my contact info. Look forward to talking with you. I played against Southern Miss when I was at ECU I know what kind of mentality you guys will being to the field each and every saturday.
I just watched your training compilation film, and I want to personally tell you that you and your staff are doing a great job. Your lifting technique is very sold, especially on the olympic lifts and their supplements. Would love to be able to talk some shop with you soon, as it looks that our training philosophies are very similar. Look forward to hearing from you.
oo ok .. That's great to know .. We're well connected then .. I'm over in Fair Lawn. Sleo actually just opened up his own Parisi's down in Sparta. And yes, we are still tearing it up in North Jersey at Parisi's
I am sure you don't remember me but I was in class with you and a few other graduate students (one of Dr. Johnson's classes hahaha). I just wanted to congratulate you on being the head strength coach at Southern Miss. I was actually looking to see if you had any graduate assistant positions available but didn't see any open. I would have loved to have learned from you. Good luck with everything in Hattiesburg!
