ECU Football: Need for Speed

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – With just 50 days until kickoff of the 2015 ECU Football season, the Pirates are hard at work.

But under the tutelage of Assistant Athletic Director and Strength and Conditioning coach Jeff Connors, ECU is focused…more so than ever…on speed.

Connors said that when he first arrived at ECU, just 14 athletes could run a 40-yard-dash in 4.6 seconds or faster. He now has 36 players that can break that barrier.

WNCT’s Patrick Quinn went inside the huddle with ECU Football as the Pirates develop their need for speed.
