Coach P.J. Fleck and his staff are changing the way you think and putting their words into practice.  On Tuesday night the entire coaching staff were took part in a seminar led by former WMU linebacker and author Garrett Soldano.

The seminar about preparing your mind to allow your body to do things you never thought possible concludes with a series of tasks.  What are they? - walking over hot coals, walking on glass, breaking a two-inch thick board with your hand and breaking an arrow with your neck.  Yes, you just read breaking an arrow with your neck.

There are no lengths this coaching staff won't go to become mentally tougher than any one and that is being relayed to our football student-athletes.  The message? - don't let what you think is impossible hinder you from reaching your goals.

All of this and securing a top 25 recruiting class for 2014.  Row the Boat.
