Working Around High School Bell Schedule?


Coach Stewart has turned around 4 losing programs and taken them to playoffs.  The common element to every turnaround was his Year-Round Strength & Conditioning Program.

  • At McFarland all workouts were outside because of no weight room
  • At Corcoran, they converted a shower into a workout area using weights donated by a prison
  • At Porterville he started with 2 racks, 2 benches, and 3 kids....five years later they had 12 racks and 92 kids
  • In Pennslyvania, kids travel great distances to come to school and there is no weight training classes during school.  Plus Stewart LIVES in California.

See how he met all these challenges head on in this course.

  • Porterville, a large, rural school of 2,000 students, won 40 games in 5 years, including back-to-back section runner-ups at a that had won 8 games in the 5 years prior to his arrival.
  • Pennsylvania. Stewart went to a different state to coach a team that had went 3-7, 2-8, and 4-6. Stewart's team went 9-1 and was #6 in entire state in total offense in 2018 followed by a 12-1 district championship that had the #2 offense in the entire state.
