This week our G&G Fitness Coach of the Week is none other than Fred Thomas, the former coach at Malone University. He is now a volunteer assistant at the University of Mount Union, helping with the offensive line.
Coach Thomas said it's been an interesting road to get to Alliance and coach alongside Vince Kehres, but he says he's been fortunate to land with such a prestigious program.
"It's been a blessing," Coach Thomas said. "The players have been great to me, the coaches have been great to me."
The Purple Raiders start spring football in a week and a half.
