Summer Update with Mark Hill
July 22, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Mark Hill is in his first season as head strength and conditioning coach with the Hoosier football program. He owns 11 years of coaching experience and has been a part of six bowl teams, including the 2000 national champion Oklahoma Sooners.
During the summer months, Hill is the most important coach on staff. He is the only coach allowed to come in contact with the team.
Hill talks about that and voluntary summer workouts below.
How have voluntary workouts gone this summer?
Is the mental attitude around the weight room positive right now?
What is the advantage of the 25,000-square-foot weight room?
Are you excited for your first game as an Indiana Hoosier?
"As a strength coach getting guys ready for the season in the eight-week program, you are extremely excited. I can remember when we started back in June and I said to myself `we have eight weeks to get better.' Now that time is dwindling down, that just limits the time I have to get those guys ready and in shape. I think we're going to push up until game week, getting ready, getting mentally ready. Fall camp will be a different challenge, guys start getting the plays. It's then time for practice and time to get ready for Ball State. I think we'll be good. I'm extremely excited. You always like to see a product that you are trying to get better and get conditioned; you actually want to see that product put into play. And that's what I'm excited for. To see these guys play a game, and their hard work and dedication throughout the summer months starts to pay off."
