Georgia Tech

The third candidate on the list is Georgia Tech’s Strength and Conditioning coach Lew Caralla. Lew Caralla has been active of late, since winning the 2018 FootballScoop Strength & Conditioning Coach of the Year with the University of Buffalo. Immediately afterward, he took on a similar role with Georgia Tech.

Caralla is a bit of a gypsy, every moving from one role to the next. At one point, he had three different Strength & Conditioning jobs at three different schools.  He sandwiched his Coach of the Year award season in the second of those three seasons. Prior to the University of Buffalo, Caralla was director of strength and conditioning at Louisiana-Lafayette (2016-17) and North Texas (2015). He joined the Georgia Tech staff in 2019. He was an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Yellow Jackets football team from 2010 to 2011.

That’s a very good sign for the LA Rams, who would most certainly seek a coach to come in and make an immediate impact.  Caralla has a proven track record of doing just that.  Caralla implemented a training program focusing on players’ strength and cardiovascular health but also focused on their psychological development.

Caralla is also tech-savvy, having posted his training session on-line, generating thousands of views and followers.  All of this makes him a very worthwhile candidate for the Rams opening.
