The Bluejays have already benefited from off-season strength and conditioning, which Gottsch said contributes to “better practices and better competition.” Gottsch said the added year of experience has also been a boon. “The returners are much more settled into our systems, and after one season, players as well as coaches are more comfortable and competent with our schemes and systems,” he said. “It translates into more efficient practices.” KCAC rules allow for 10 hours of spring practice; Tabor has logged four hours so far. “To...
