Looking to improve on their record breaking 2018-19 season, which ended in the Sweet Sixteen round of the state playoffs with a team record of 10-2, the Dawson County Tigers football program has expanded the capability of their weight room with the addition of eight Keiser Infinity Series Functional Trainers. Priced at approximately $3,500 apiece, the machines were purchased with a down payment of funds raised by the Tigers’ booster organization, the Touchdown Club, and have been a feature of every locker room in Head Coach Sid Maxwell’s football coaching career. “I installed these in my programs at Sequoyah and Lambert and saw good results,” Maxwell said. “Along with the existing weights we can train up to 48 guys at a time.”
