Coach Kenion made me a better football player. He is smart and intelligent man who knows the game of football and knows what to do to get in shape for your sport. He helped with my footwork at the defensive back position and helped me with my technique at the running back position. Whatever sport you play Coach Kenion has the drills and knowledge to make you stronger, faster, and better in that sport

After my senior football season at De La Salle I worked out with Coach Kenion 2 to 3 times a week. The strength and speed training he provided me was without a doubt one of the key factors in preparing me for my freshman year at a Division I program.

Coach Kenion’s training really helped me to elevate my game to the next level. His speed, agility and strength training help make the jump from the high school to college game easier. Speed, agility and strength training are the most desired traits in any sport, and with coach Kenion’s training I was able to improve in each of these categories and better prepared myself for the college game. I owe a lot of credit to coach Kenion’s training for putting me in, and succeeding in the position I am in today.

I think working with coach Kenion has improved my game drastically and anyone who wants to be great should go to him.

Kenion Training workouts have helped me get to the next step in my speed and explosiveness that I was missing in my game. Every workout you do you can see how exactly it will affect your sport. You can’t find anyone better than Coach Kenion that will listen to you, have fun with you, but push you to better yourself. I would highly recommend Kenion Training to anyone who needs to prepare for the speed change that comes with the next level of any sport.

Working out with Coach Kenion helped me to become more explosive and faster. He has a very high IQ for not only personal training but for the game of football. You can see when he coaches how passionate he is about helping others to become there best.

Nate has the rings to prove it! Being and playing with professional calibur athletes, he knows what it takes to be ELITE. Nate’s world class experience combined with the dedication and creativity he demonstrates through his training provides the difference between getting better…And being the BEST!

Out of all the years I have been involved in sports Coach Kenion is definitely one of the best strength coaches I have been around. He pushed me to become the player I am today.

De La Salle's Lucas Dunne enjoys inspired season


December 17, 2010|By Mitch Stephens, Special to The Chronicle

De La Salle-Concord tailback Lucas Dunne has always had a good attitude. Without blinding speed and checking in at 5-foot-7 3/4 and 173 pounds, he's helped by every little mental edge.

Spartans running-backs coach Nathan Kenion has supplied Dunne with more mental training.

A poem, a credo, an encouraging posting. Each Monday, Kenion printed out words of inspiration to take to heart, such as these, from "Attitude" by Charles Swindoll: "The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have ... our attitude. Life is 10 percent what happens to (us), and 90 percent how (we) react to it."

Dunne said, "I keep them all in a folder. Whenever I feel down or need a confidence boost, they served as a pick-me-up. A source of energy." 

He needed the entire Tony Robbins collection just before De La Salle's first scrimmage in August when coach Bob Ladouceur told the team it lacked a go-to running back.

The Spartans had graduated a pair of Division I backs, Terron Ward and Tyler Anderson, and no one had yet emerged to take their place.

Dunne, who had 62 carries (376 yards) in mop-up duty last year, was penciled in as the starter, but Ladouceur seemed to be erasing that notion.

That's when Dunne's other 90 percent kicked in.

"I remember just feeling this jolt and telling myself: 'I'm going to be that guy. I'm going to be a senior leader. I'm going to step up,' " Dunne said.

Sixteen weeks, 13 straight wins, 1,662 yards and 31 touchdowns later, Dunne has more than stepped up.

Heading into Saturday's CIF Open Division Bowl game against Servite-Anaheim, the physically unimposing, mentally strong Concord resident not only has surpassed Ward's 2009 touchdown mark by three, but he's also within 389 yards of the school record - set by Ward, now at Oregon State.

Clearly, no one expects him to approach that mark Saturday. But then again, nobody thought he'd remotely approach his current numbers. Except, perhaps, the strong-minded Dunne.

"Honestly, I knew I had it in me," Dunne said. "And I knew my line had it in them. I just needed to change my attitude because how could they have confidence in me if I didn't have confidence in myself."

After Dunne ran for a combined 287 yards and four TDs in his first two games, Ladouceur showed more confidence.

After a 214-yard, six-touchdown explosion from Dunne at midseason against Monte Vista, Ladouceur knew he had another star tailback in the making - much in the mold of Ward, Patrick Walsh and Maurice Jones-Drew.
