Today marks an emotional ending for head strength and conditioning coach Chris Carlisle, who watched as his offseason workout program came to a close today at Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
But it’s not the sad kind of emotion.
“Very excited,” Carlisle said, beaming with a sense of accomplishment after the Seahawks completed their 14th week of offseason training with workouts this morning.
The four-day-a-week offseason program started March 15 and has produced gleaming results, as Carlisle and the players are raving about the improvements they’ve seen in the last three-plus months.
“I can’t throw stones at all,” Carlisle said. “They did everything I wanted to get done. We’re very satisfied.”
Carlisle’s not alone. The players themselves are praising the accomplishments of the offseason.
“We’re definitely a stronger, faster team than we were before,” defensive lineman Craig Terrill said. “This offseason has paid dividends for us so far in OTAs and minicamps, and it’ll pay off especially in the season.”
