CHARDON
SPEED AND PLYOMETRICS
By Dr. Greg Shepard
Published: Fall 1997

Bob Doyle is the Head Football Coach for the Chardon High School Hilltoppers in Chardon, Ohio.  He is also a BFS Clinician and by definition that means they do the BFS Program.  This means you normally lift weights on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays during the off-season.  Then on Tuesdays and Thursdays you concentrate on Speed and Plyometric workouts.  Last May I gave Coach Doyle and the Hilltoppers a visit. 

I had heard that about 65 athletes some of them girls get to school at 6:30 in the morning to go through their Speed and Plyometric workout before classes start.  I had also heard that after they workout, they go to the cafeteria and are required to eat/drink at least five good things.  That means a 10-point meal if you use the BFS nutritional system.

I was not prepared for what I saw.  Any college or high school coach would literally be in awe.  After seeing the Hilltoppers go through their highly structured routine of the BFS Dot Drill, Flexibility Exercises, Jumping Rope, Speed and Plyometric drills, I was almost speechless.  The only thing I said to Coach Doyle was that if I were still coaching that I would not play against him under any circumstance.

The athletes knew exactly what to do as they went speedily from one drill to the next.  Jumping, hopping, lunging in various stages of difficulty.  Continuous repetition week after week had produced mouth dropping results.  When you see 300-pound tackels and girls going through their maneuvers like gazelles, you take notice.  To me, an ex-football coach and strength and conditioning coach, it was a thing of great beauty.  Coach Doyle has truly fashioned a speed and plyometric model for all to follow.
