Aaron Donald leads the coaching session at his center college


Aaron Donald returned to his hometown this week to lead a summer training session with middle school students at his junior high school alma mater.

Penn Hills Middle School junior high school students received a surprising training partner on Wednesday: former PHMS student and Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald.

The Pittsburgh Tribune review reported that the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year 2020 and seven-time Pro Bowl selection were accompanying students from his middle school alma mater as part of the school’s Go Pro summer training program.

“We really value our alumni and hope they give students the inspiration and motivation to do things in life and work on their future,” said Matt Herdman, the summer program coordinator.

Donald was assisted by his trainer DeWayne Brown along with members of Donald’s 2 / 10th Speed ​​+ Agility training team. Donald and his training team had to train the kids through footwork and agility exercises, which are some of the trainings Donald does to develop his quick feet off the ball. The 2/10 program has been in Pennsylvania since 2015.

Seventh grader Gabrielle West told the Tribune Review, “It was so amazing to train with a major league athlete,” adding that she had a chat with the all-pro during the one-on-one practice sessions.

Seventh grader colleague Zylon Patterson added, “The training was great and felt just like the soccer practice I do.”

Anyone who’s followed the 6-foot-1,284-pound career of Donald knows about his vigorous exercise regimen that doesn’t make him look like your average, heavy-duty defensive machine without a stomach. The chiseled Donald is obsessed with fitness and even allowed the Rams Twitter account to share his abdominal routine last year during the pandemic.

Donald revealed some of his training and nutrition secrets in this video:

Donald also launched his own YouTube channel in June 2020 showing his family people page and training plans.

Via the ‘Go Pro’ program

In a June 21 Tribune Review article, the purpose of the Go Pro program is not only to connect PHMS students with previous students, but also to make up for the learning loss during the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s not the first time Donald has been a guest at his middle school alma mater. As part of his AD99 Solutions Foundation, he led a training session in 2019. Donald set up the foundation to help the underserved youth in his hometown of Pittsburgh.

“AD99 Solutions’ mission is to transform the careers of Pittsburgh’s most vulnerable youth by providing the necessary resources in a free, safe environment that empowers them to excel academically, socially and athletically,” it says in the mission statement of the website. “In the city known as the ‘City of Bridges’, we want to act as a bridge and connect underserved communities and young people with what they lack most – resources and opportunities.”

Donald joins another lineman to give something back

In June, two members of the Rams defensive trenches gave way.

Together with Donald, his teammate Sebastian Joseph-Day surprised a nearby school with a donation from the Rams. The fourth year Rutgers Nose Tackle helped make a $ 5,550 donation to Garfield High’s football program and Bulldogs head coach Lorenzo Hernandez on June 14.
