Former Curtis strength/assistant coach Tommy Moffitt’s son, Aaron, just signed a letter of intent to play at LSU. Tommy has risen to one of the top college strength coaches in the nation. A story in today’s New Orleans Advocate included the following of special interest to Patriot fans:
Three of Moffitt’s former protégés at LSU are among the top 10 strength coaches nationally: Alabama’s Scott Cochran, South Carolina’s Jeff Dillman and Florida State’s Vic Viloria.
All of them remain close friends. They’re on a group text message chain called “Patriot Power” — a reference to the John Curtis Patriots, with whom Moffitt and several of them got their start in the industry.
Moffitt led Curtis’ strength staff, coached the offensive line and headed the wrestling team in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His college roommate at Tennessee Tech was a Curtis graduate — the link between the Tennessee-born Moffitt and Louisiana.
Jill, a New Orleans girl, met Tommy while he worked at Curtis. His son Clay was born in Tennessee while Tommy was an assistant strength coach for the Volunteers, and Aaron was born in Miami while Tommy led the Hurricanes strength staff in 1998-99.
