F. David Coleman
Upon assuming my role as Vice President of Officiating at the Pac-12 Conference, Duane and Lightning Fast were brought on board to develop and launch similar programs for our officials. After two years, Pac-12 football officials have shown improvement in performance due to their participation in the Lightning Fast program. The true value of such an endeavor is measured by the customized structure of the program that addresses and meets the specific health, fitness and mobility requirements of a unique group of athletes – Division One college football officials. The program for baseball umpires was introduced in January 2017. The work that Duane and his organization have done for the Pac-12 is unique and the superior results have been excellent.
