Saturday 1-28-17

Coach's thoughts on today:
Doing Benchmarks on a Saturday at the end of a tough week is always rough. Many of you may not be able to handle the weights as Rx'd. I try to program Saturday workouts as more of a fun day where everyone is doing the same work, scale if you need and do the best you can.

United States Army Capt. Benjamin David Tiffner, 31, of West Virginia, died Nov. 7, 2007, when his vehicle was struck by an improvised-explosive device in Baghdad, Iraq, while he was supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.

In 1996, Tiffner was nominated by Senator Robert Byrd to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He graduated from the Academy in 2000. After six years of service, Tiffner graduated from the Special Forces Qualification Course and was assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne).

Tiffner’s mother, Judith, said her son always wanted to serve.
