I talk with Shawn Powell from Cannon School located in Concord North Carolina. If you are from the southeast region you may know of coach Powell and his background and it is a pretty cool one that a lot high school strength coaches haven’t had the chance to experience. Coach Powell brings a lot of knowledge in coaching to the high school level, but he says he is always learning and wanting to better himself and his program everyday. There are lot of great nuggets of info in this one, so you may want to listen to this one again.

Shawn Powell was named as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Cannon School in May 2014.

Coach Powell joined Cannon after spending five years as Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Penske Racing and seven years as Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach with the Carolina Panthers.

Coach Powell, a North Carolina native, holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion and Kinesiology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and an Associate of Arts in Health Fitness Technology from Brevard College. He has been a speaker, a mentor and a great coaching friend to be able to connect with in this strength coaching industry.

My name is Dane Nelson. I am a former college and high school strength coach. I created this podcast for strength coaches at any level but more specifically for High School Strength Coaches. I want strength coaches to be able to connect to each other and learn more about the growing field of full time high school strength coaching.  Thanks for checking out the website.  It would be great to connect with other strength coaches and talk about what works and what doesn’t work when training high school athletes.  This is why I created this podcast. I hope  you find it useful and valuable!
