In the latest installment of In the Gym at EFT, performance specialist Jordyn Gaza instructs on the proper way to do wall stretches.
Deerfield senior Charlie Jones picks up the assist by demonstrating for Gaza. By stretching properly, athletes limit their risk of injury and maximize their readiness to compete.

While many athletes talk about leadership and the importance of being a leader, others let their actions do the talking. One of them is Stagg senior quarterback Kyle Neputy (6-foot-4, 234 pounds).
Neputy, who is signed and will play this fall at Cornell, participated in last year's annual Franklin Middle School Charity Dodgeball tournament. The tournament had such a positive impact on Neputy and his fellow Charger teammates that they decided to rally together and support a worthwhile cause for a second straight year.
I had a chance to catch up with the Kyle Neputy at the sixth annual Franklin Middle School Dodgeball Tournament in Wheaton. Proceeds from the event benefited the Northern Illinois Food Bank, Cammy Can, Jack’s Army and Franklin Middle School.
Neputy shares why he and his Stagg teammates decided to support the event. He also had a chance to reflect on making the move to Cornell later this year.
Lake Park junior offensive/defensive lineman Patrick Panasiuk (6-foot-3, 295 pounds) is hoping to follow in the extra-large footsteps of his two older brothers. DT Mike Panasiuk and DE Jacub Panasiuk are playing for Mark Dantonio at Michigan State. Patrick, who was an all-conference offensive tackle for coach Chris Roll’s Lancers in 2017, has drawn steady recruiting attention this off season.
I had a chance to catch up with the youngest Panasiuk brother at the sixth annual Franklin Middle School Dodgeball Tournament in Wheaton. Proceeds from the event benefited the Northern Illinois Food Bank, Cammy Can, Jack’s Army and Franklin Middle School.
Panasiuk was able to take a minute to recap his latest recruiting interests. He also reflected on his relationship — and influence — of his two older brothers.
Check out the interview with Patrick Panasiuk above.
