This was a recent quote posted on social media that was certainly apropos for this Tottenism. Recently, we lost one of the best coaches and best persons in our field of strength and conditioning. Tom Cross passed away and left a huge hole in everyone’s heart. He was an outstanding coach, friend and mentor and will be sorely missed. With his wealth of knowledge and love of teaching and coaching, he was a stalwart in the world of strength and conditioning well into his 80’s and 90’s. When he passed, indeed, his “library of knowledge” burned to the ground. However, with all of the students and athletes that he taught and inspired over the years, his legacy will live on. Rest in Peace, Tom Cross!
