Joshua Is an 18 year old High School Senior here at Champions Quest. He is a soccer player who competes for the O.C. Premiere soccer club. Josh plays right and left midfield, and also contributes as a forward. This athlete is very dynamic, fast, strong, and explosive as he dominates on the field with his athleticism. It has been exciting to watch his improvement this past year. Josh is one of our Champion level athletes and reached this accomplishment throughout 2014! This means that Josh is an athlete who is ready to compete at the college level.
During 2014, Josh put on over 10 pounds of lean muscle mass. This boosted his strength and power! His vertical jump increased by 5 inches and now jumps over 32 inches straight up. For his upper body strength, Joshua can now complete over 90 pushups within 1 minute, and complete 32 pull-ups without resting.
Speed has always been a strong focus for Josh. His position has such a huge demand for top acceleration and endurance. Josh is extremely quick at changing directions and being able to accelerate out of turns with power. He dropped 0.40 seconds off of his 5-10-5 speed drill, from 4.7 to 4.3. That is extremely fast! Josh was also finally able to drop his 40 yard dash time to 5.00 seconds flat by adding more strength to his legs.
All of these results were no accident. Josh made a serious commitment to make the workouts at Champions Quest every single week, improving on his strength and speed. That was in addition to his schoolwork, soccer practices, and time spent with friends and family. Making your athleticism a priority is what it takes to become a Champion. Josh is the true mark of what it means to be a Champion athlete.
Josh has aspirations of playing soccer in college, but really wants to focus on academics throughout his college career. His plan is to try out for the men’s soccer team at the college he attends. There is no doubt in my mind that he will impress and make the roster. We all look forward to his future success!
