Three years ago, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Matt Walter got the chance of a lifetime — the opportunity to design a brand-new weight room from the ground up, as a part of planned renovations to Coe’s Eby Fieldhouse. "These opportunities in this profession are pretty much once in a lifetime," said Walter. "Being able to design my own weight room is something I may never get to do again in my career."
