Football fever and excitement is starting to spread across Breckenridge.
A new coaching staff in 2014 brings together a new outlook and expectations for the season.

Although, the Bucks are a month away from the official start of the season with the beginning of two-a-day workouts, the preparations are well underway.

The Buckaroos have been actively getting fit and stronger with help from the summer strength and conditioning program.

The high school athletes work out Monday through Thursday each week from 6:30  to 8:30 a.m.

However, the summer strength and conditioning program is not limited to just high school athletes.

The Bucks spend a lot of their time in the weight room, but Buckaroo Strength and Conditioning coach Anthony Black says that the things implemented in the weight room carry over to help athletes in whatever sport they may be participating in.

“A lot of the things that we do are explosive type lifts, which help out in the athletes overall athleticism and that can be in football, basketball, track or any other sport,” said Black. “The more explosive type lifting that you do, makes you more agile and really helps with your explosive strength.”
