...Big Mike, known as undersized at the Center position at 6'6, often was matched up with a much taller opponent. But Mike's desire....and demanding strength training program put him "large and In charge" and he usually found a way to win!
Big Mike was back in the weightroom yesterday. This guy once set screens for Wally Szczerbiak at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Now, he's doing it again...only off the court, as he directs the political campaign for Congressman Steve Chabot (R). Mike was fiery leader for the Miami Redhawks as they surged their way to the NCAA's "Sweet 16" in 1999. One word for Mike: INTENSE. His quote for the workout was "Do or Do Not.....There Is No TRY" ........yep...Yoda!
Sunday's Workout was Intense also,
