    I had to stop reading after they referenced Iron Rooster's homemade pop tart...missing Annapolis too much!

    But really, interesting article. I've always seen this peripherally as a non-athlete here.

    I have watched these guys make this transformation, it's amazing. The football staff does a great job of helping them make this change. It is no small feat to go from 290 to 225 in less than 100 days and run a sub 10 minute PRT. My neighbor my 2/C year was a lineman like this. He topped out at 295. He came to USNA at about 210. He worked so hard and got down to 220. He didn't pass his PRT run until Commissioning Week. He also had a wedding slated for 2 days after. He never told his family how close he cut it. Our company had no less than 20 people running with him the last month or so. The last few times we had over 100. When he finally passed he crossed the line and broke down crying.
