Alex Boone, a former offensive guard in the NFL, has left his mark on the sport with his powerful performance on the field. After eight seasons in the NFL, Boone retired from the game in 2018, but he has remained active in the football community, working as an analyst and coach. In the summer of 2022, Boone and NFL combine trainer, Bill Welle, started Brute Oline Development Camp which trains high school and college offensive lineman for the next level. In the inaugural Brute Oline camp, the offensive lineman used the FlipSled to further develop a strong base, powerful hips, and explosiveness. Check out what Alex Boone had to say after seeing his offensive lineman train with the FlipSled:
Alex Boone started his football career at Ohio State University, where he played for the Buckeyes from 2005 to 2008. He was a starter in his final two seasons, and he was part of a team that won two Big Ten Conference Championships and a National Championship in 2008. Boone was drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.
Boone spent seven seasons with the 49ers, starting in 42 games, helping the team make it to the Super Bowl in 2012. He then played for the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 and the Arizona Cardinals in 2017 before retiring from the NFL in 2018. Throughout his career, Boone was known for his physicality and his ability to create space for his teammates on the offensive line.
Now, Boone is focusing on passing on his knowledge and experience to the next generation of offensive linemen. His Brute Oline camp is designed to provide players with the tools they need to succeed on the field. The camp is open to offensive linemen from middle school to college, and it focuses on technique, strength, and mental preparation.
One of the key tools that Boone will be using at the Brute Oline camp is the FlipSled. The FlipSled is a football sled that helps players develop their blocking technique and increase their strength and explosiveness. Boone is excited about using the FlipSled at his camp because he knows how effective it can be in helping players improve their skills.
The FlipSled is a game-changer," he said. "It's going to help these young players take their game to the next level."
Boone's Brute Oline camp is set to take place in the summer of 2023, and top offensive linemen from around the country are expected to attend. With the FlipSled as a key tool in the camp's training regimen, players are sure to leave the camp with improved skills and increased confidence on the field. The use of innovative training tools like the FlipSled is just one of the many ways that Boone is helping to shape the future of the game.
