Interview with Andrew Eng, Ridgewood Grad and Binghamton University Outfielder

By Nunzio Signore (BA, CSCS, NASM, CPT, PES, FMS)

We are here with Andrew Eng, Ridgewood high school grad and currently a freshman at Binghamton University.  Andrew started training with us during his senior year at Ridgewood and I have to say that there aren’t many like Andrew Eng.  He is one of the most athletic and explosive athletes to ever train at RPP.  He still holds the triple jump record here.  Last winter, he was also the Most Improved Athlete at our gym.  Andrew joined me for a brief interview this holiday season when he was home for the break.

Interview with Kinnelon’s RHP Paul Cannarella (coming off Tommy John Surgery)

FullSizeRenderWe are here with Kinnelon’s Paul Cannarella.  Paul came to us in the fall of his senior year and has been training with us for almost a year.  He graduated from Kinnelon High School this year and unfortunately during this spring season he hurt his elbow.  He had Tommy John surgery and he is now on his path to recovery.  I thought it could be a great interview and learning experience to hear Paul tell his story first hand.

FullSizeRender (1)By Nunzio Signore (BA, CSCS, NASM, CPT, PES, FMS)

We are here with Tenafly’s LHP Aljo Sujak, who will be entering his freshman year at William and Mary this coming September.  Aljo was selected as Baseball Player of the Year this past spring by NorthJersey.com (The Record), which is obviously a significant honor. He started training with us about a year ago and spent the better part of last fall training 3-5 times per week.  He continued throughout the winter with the Pitching Lab and also trained all in-season throughout the spring.  Needless to say, as POY in Bergen county, he had a phenomenal spring season. As a primary pitcher, he blasted 11 home runs and during 56 innings of work he struck out 72 players.  He finished 5-2 with a 2.25 earned-run average.

We are here with Andrew Olsen, junior catcher at Don Bosco Prep.  Andrew is the ultimate student-athlete, top of his class academically and playing baseball at such a high level.  And frankly having improved his Exit Velo from 73 to 88 mph (this spring) there aren’t many that work as hard as he does in the gym.
