The old seven-man sled has served the football program well for many years but has been showing its age for some time.
Later this month, a new five-man sled–named the Big Boomer–will arrive at the A-Field. Paid for by the WFA, the Big Boomer allows for adjustments at three different points: pad height, pad angle and resistance.
“The Big Boomer is the latest in blocking sleds,” line coach Al Silveri said. “It will be a great tool for teaching modern-style blocking techniques.”
Get ready, Spartan linemen, the Big Boomer is coming soon!
