The coaches love Cliff because he is a model of consistency, even though he comes in late to 95% of the classes in the last 3 years, that’s Cliff. You know he’s going to be there 3 days a week like clockwork and he’ll often times set the bar to beat for the rest of the day when it comes to any strength movement. He can muscle snatch over 215+#! He’s a monster! One of our best memories is playing vs Cliff’s flag football team 2 years ago in the city league and watching Cliff play both sides of the ball (running circles around his younger teammates) and eventually getting a pick 6 off of us!! Thanks for your loyalty Cliff, we really appreciate you and are proud of all your progress you’ve made since you’ve been with us!!
