Jeshua on training with the best
27th May 2014
With Olympic Gold Medalists and World Champions a regular sight at the World Athletics Center, Jeshua gave an insight into what it’s like training amongst the best athletes on the planet.
“It’s great to be training amongst the atmosphere in our group at the World Athletics Center,” said Jeshua. “It’s cool to see professionals from all different disciplines and sports training at Exos. All are training hard with the same goal, to be the best in the World. It really drives the work ethic, and it’s great to be around that.”
‘All are training hard with the same goal, to be the best in the World.’
“I’ve definitely got to catch a glimpse of some of the guys that got chosen in the draft the last few weeks. Everybody is concentrating on training, either we’re lifting weights or they are getting ready to do their position drills.”
Exos, one of the outstanding elite training facilities used by the Center, supported 64 players selected in the NFL draft this year, a quarter of the entire draft class.
“It is a great facility and it’s a pleasure to train there and be around that atmosphere. It was cool to see some, now, NFL players.”
Back in January, Jeshua tipped former Cougar teammate Deone Bucannon for success, and it came with the Arizona Cardinals selecting Deone in the first round.
“One of the guys I played football with out in Washington State got picked up in the first round, Deone Bucannon.”
“So I was excited for him getting picked up and being here in Arizona. So I’ll be able to see him play some ball out here, and I have a reason to go watch the Arizona Cardinals.”
