Dogs don’t Stretch!

Exercise science, sports psychology and kinesiology have their place in achieving athletic excellence, but so does guts, will and determination. Coach Devlin subscribed a bit to those later ingredients as he would jokingly ask, “What’s with all this stretching?! You ever see a dog stretch before it goes running?!”
