The drill> seemed s ple enough. Strap one's self to a weighted sled and sprint down field severat yards, then return. In practice, however, the feat was much more challenging. The methods behind the madness of the drill, however, went far beyond the exercise. For many middle and high school athletes who take part in the camps, improving over the summer could help prepare for competition at the 6A level.

Almost every expert, and armchair expert, penciled Pacquiao as the victor in one of boxing's most compelling bouts since the first meeting between Apollo Creed and Rocky Balboa. Pacquiao landed 31 percent of his punches, as opposed to 14 percent for Horn, according to CompuBox statistics. Pacquiao drove home FROM THE SIDELINES, 2B .t+ i I't iii iIi
