Football Testing Records

Mike Gentry, Virginia Tech’s associate AD for athletic performance; Jarrett Ferguson, Virginia Tech’s director of strength and conditioning for football; and Keith Short, Virginia Tech’s coordinator of strength and conditioning for football, handle the strength and conditioning needs for the Hokies’ football program.

The members of the football team train pretty much throughout the year and are tested twice a year in the following categories – bench press, back or front squat, power clean, push jerk, vertical jump and 40-yard or 10-yard sprint.

Here is a look at Virginia Tech’s All-Time Elite Club – the top 10 players in each of the categories tested:
