Mark Hudspeth has won back-to-back New Orleans Bowl titles as the head coach of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette football team. The Ragin' Cajuns mentor can also pump some iron. In a recent YouTube clip, the 44-year-old former Delta State safety and quarterback completed 25 reps on the bench press at 225 lbs. Why is that significant? Former Central Michigan offensive lineman Eric Fisher, who was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the top overall pick in April's NFL draft, did 27 reps at the same weight during the NFL Scouting Combine. And the 22-year-old Fisher stands 6-foot-8 and weighs over 300 pounds.
Moving to baseball, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim joined the 2001 Philadelphia Phillies and the 1999 Montreal Expos as the only teams to lose three consecutive games via a walk-off home run. Adrian Beltre's solo shot in the ninth inning was the game-winner in a 2-1 Texas victory.
And Kurt Warner may be coming to a theater near you in the near future. The film rights for the Super Bowl-winning quarterback's life story were acquired by 20th Century Fox.
