Michael Jordan once said, “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.”  Students in Mr. Johnson weight training/body conditioning class are learning that if you set goals, expect something of yourself, success follows.

This past week has seen classes competing in many areas including arm wrestling, leg wrestling, bench press, shuttle runs, standing and running long jumps, as well as many others skills. “All class members competed well and had a great time,” said Coach Johnson.

Morley Bennett came out on top of his class while Julia Vasquez, Briggs Callister, Ammon Beck and Itzel Valdez came out on top of their classes! These students have taken to heart the advice of UCLA’s late great coach John Wooden gave his basketball players:  “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
