Damn, I miss teaching. I was the Phys. Ed. teacher (it isn’t “gym”) who gave homework and tests, had the kids carrying around sacks of dog food and cat litter strongman-style, and taught them flag football in the parking lot.
Great find, Derek.
On a side note, is it just me, or is this dude the spitting image of Dan John minus another 20-30 pounds? No coincidence, I’m sure.

That was great. I have several friends that teach. I forward them a link to check it out.
Thanks for posting.
