Steve Spurrier turning 70, still working out harder than most sports reporters.

It's almost hard to believe that Steve Spurrier is turning 70 on Monday. Part of that disbelief comes from the fact that the South Carolina head coach neither looks or acts his age. Spurrier credits that to a workout regimen that he's managed to maintain on a regular basis since his days as a quarterback in the NFL.

The State's Josh Kendall recently had the chance to partake in one of The Head Ball Coach's workout sessions, the end result being both men posing shirtless for the camera.

Spurrier believes he's in better shape than he was at the time when he won the Heisman Trophy in 1966. Back then, the strength and conditioning programs weren't as rigorous as they are now, and Spurrier spent more time at the golf course than in the weight room.

“That was summer workouts in the ‘60s,” he said. “Couple of classes in the morning, golf, local restaurant, local pub. Couple of classes in the morning, local restaurant, local pub.”

Things are different today, fitness wise, but The Head Ball Coach remains the same.
