Ronnie Cameron, Former Defensive Tackle, Philadelphia Eagles -

Professional Performance is definitely one of the biggest factors in my athletic success throughout my career.  I went in a young and unpolished 16 year old and they taught me how to properly strength train and proper speed mechanics, but more than anything they taught me how to push myself beyond my limit. This carried over to the field and my life. I was able to get a college football scholarship under the direction of Lynn and Dean. Which ultimately led to me being a 1st Team All American and Defensive Player of the Year in my conference.  I returned every off-season and they prepared me for the next level.Professional helped push me over the top and prepared me for the NFL where I was able to make a roster and live my dream.
