“Speed Kills” is one of the most common sayings in football. That’s why Winnipeg Blue Bombers Linebacker, Teague Sherman, dedicates each day to becoming a faster and more efficient runner – whether he is on the field, in the gym or on the track.

Teague has a long history of playing football, including a five-year career for the University of Manitoba Bisons, where he was named the first team all-Canadian in each of his final two seasons with the team.

In 2012, Teague was more than ecstatic when he was asked to join the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as Safety. During his second season with the Blue Bombers, he started 13 games and recorded 55 tackles and 5 forced fumbles. Now having a true taste of the CFL, Teague is more focused than ever on becoming a more powerful football player. To help achieve this, Teague started training with Adam Decker out of Sport Manitoba and has already seen improvements in his speed and power. Along with Adam, Teague is working with nutritionist Chris Hyde, who is also a believer in the power of chocolate milk, and has built it into his diet.

Nutrition and eating right is clearly a very important component to Teague’s day-to-day training, which is why chocolate milk has always been his go-to recovery beverage. In fact, he has always wondered why recreation centres don’t have chocolate milk in their vending machines, specifically for after workouts.

Teague is all for promoting the power of chocolate milk in any way he can!
