ASAP made its way to the ATL to check in on the fast growing program at Georgia State University. It's located right in the heart of downtown Atlanta and is home to around 50,000 students! So by enrollment numbers it's the largest college in Georgia. The athletics program is a member of the Sunbelt Conference and the Panther Football squad won their first bowl game last year after only 6 years of existence. Not bad.
Scott Holsopple is the head strength and conditioning coach for the Panthers and you won't find a more dedicated coach. He stations himself in a loft apartment just a mile or two away from the facility and he has definitely has a grasp on the dining scene in downtown. Let's start with his great suggestion of catching brunch at Ria's Bluebird...where The New York Times Review rated their pancakes as "world's finest". They were!
Coach Holsopple joined us a few months ago for an ASAP Podcast that was recorded at the Hammer Strength Clinic Battleground Academy Tennessee.
In this podcast, Scott discusses his background, what's going on at Georgia State Football, their brand new strength training center, the conditioning day, and the progress the team has made as they prep for the 2016 season.
