Head Trainer Duke Rousse
For the past eleven years, Coach Duke Rousse has worked with athletes in the development of their strength for sports specific skills, as well as training for speed and conditioning for on-field performance. Coach Duke's training program is designed to develop athletic excellence in professional, collegiate, high school, and junior high school athletes.
In 2010, Coach Duke was named as one of the top 25 most influential sports figures in the region by The Times Picayune's South Louisiana Sports Power Rankings. In addition to his local success, Coach Duke travels across the country with Under Armour as one of their elite trainers for high school combines. Coach Duke has been training college prospects for the NFL Draft over the span of his training career. In 2010, his joint combine training venture with Deion Sanders was featured on the NFL Network as an hour long special.
When Coach Duke is not training the country's elite athletes, he spends time with underprivileged children within the community. Coach Duke worked with Darren Sharper and Roman Harper in 2010 during their Sharper-Harper Camp for Kids, and continues to give back to the New Orleans Community.
