Golden Gopher Football Team Looks Stronger
Golden Gopher assistant Eric Klein oversees the football team's strength and conditioning program. He has been so successful with his program over the years while he was an assistant with Jerry Kill that the new Gopher head coach calls Eric Klein "the reason for my success."
It will be interesting to see how much bigger and stronger these players are this year. Starting quarterback Marqueis Gray said that he weighs 245 pounds when he played at 225 pounds last season.
It's reasonable to believe that Klein will have a much easier time getting even better results from the gopher athletes than he did with the Northern Illinois players because the Gophers have bigger and stronger athletes to begin with, who have a lot more potential.
