They say championships are won in the offseason and if that’s true then Notre Dame Dons High School (Niles, IL) running back Chris James is ready for big things.
James was already a talented performer for the Dons as a sophomore in 2011 but was not a featured player in their offense. However, that could change. Working with rising local athletic trainer Jack Casico of Twicethespeed.com, James has packed on close to 20 lbs. of muscle and shaved more than a tenth off of his already solid 40 time. James can only be described as tightly compacted ball of explosion standing at 5’10” 200 lbs and clocking a 4.40 in the forty. If those numbers are not impressive enough, then add to that James’ 290 lb. bench press and 505 lb. squat.
