We’re about a week out from the start of LSU’s training camp with summer workouts rapping up, and LSU Strength and Conditioning Coach Tommy Moffitt and Director of Player Personnel Austin Thomas both gave phone interviews to 104.5/104.9 ESPN Baton Rouge’s Culotta & The Prince morning show this week.
You can check out Moffitt’s interview here. He’s usually pretty entertaining, and there’s some good anecdotes about some of the player workouts, particularly regarding players flipping the 1,300-pound tire, which to me, is very indicative of the difference Jeff Grimes has made in LSU’s offensive line recruiting. Offensive linemen tend to be the players with that kind of ridiculous functional strength.

Thomas’ interview gets into recruiting strategy regarding satellite camps, and a lot of what he does day-to-day in terms of his job. Both interviews are well worth your time.
