|Super Bowl champ helps ULM soccer|
Former high school All-American, Super Bowl champion and Grey Cup participant Leo Gray came to Monroe recently and spent the first half of the past week working with ULM student-athletes.
But it wasn't the Warhawk football team that Gray was on campus to work with.
Acting as a guest during the opening week of soccer's annual 'boot camp,' Gray conducted classroom sessions on team and confidence building and worked with on-field sessions focused on explosiveness and speed training as a special guest for head coach Stacy Lamb.
"We were very pleased that Coach Gray was able to come in and willing to help us with our preseason camp," Lamb said. "His background and experiences make him the type of person that we as a program can learn a lot from. He has given us so much to take into the upcoming season."
More than just a stand-out professional athlete, Gray's professional resume includes a 2003 distinction as the "Salute to Champions" Role Model of the Year and is a former California Fundraiser of the Year after helping secure more than $20 million for the fight against cancer.
On the field, Gray uses a background in Martial Arts to help exercise and train both the mind and the body. A staunch believer and supporter in visualization - seeing and remembering yourself in successful situations - Gray used his past experiences as proof of the power of positive and confident thoughts and interactions.
"Some of the things that we have learned from Coach Gray are going to be included in the way we train in the future," Lamb said. "Both in the classroom and on the field, our staff and team learned some very valuable lessons from him that we can continue to use throughout this season and even into the spring and next year."
Having wrapped up the first week of practice, designated as the program's 'boot camp,' the Warhawks will continue to train until the season opener against Belhaven on Saturday, Aug. 22, at the ULM Soccer Complex. First kick of the first home athletic competition of the season is scheduled for 4 p.m.
