Saw this topic several years ago. Thought it would be neat to track the freshmen this year and their journeys much like the recruiting topic for 2021's. Good for our kids and us to know what everybody else is going through in their first college experience.
Son took summer classes starting July 8th. Worked out, got used to campus, and started hitting. When he was home for Labor Day weekend he looked thinner. Asked him and he said he had lost 17 pounds since July 8th bod pod. They were doing a new bod pod this week so I'm interested to see how his body fat % has changed and strength. He was a three sport guy through high school so he has never really lifted or worked out like he is doing now. Did the weight lifting classes in high school but that was about it. His schedule is crazy how it bounces around from times to buildings. I think he is grasping how hard it is to be a D1 athlete and student. Start official practice on September 18th with a scrimmage. Play Clemson at home on September 28th and Xavier in Nashville in October.
