"When working with coaches you always want to be a resource to help them  become better coaches. I am consistently trying to find programs that may provide an edge for our coaches. Trainers like Ray Lokar help provide that incremental improvement, making your staff just a little better than they were yesterday, grounded in principles that every NCAA program should reflect. He provides a framework for success that our coaches responded to and were able to incorporate into their intercollegiate programs."
John Planek, Athletic Director, Loyola University, Chicago
