Washington Redskins

Current Redskins Role: Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach (1st year)

Experience as a Player: 4 years in college (defensive tackle, College of New Jersey)

What He Brings to the Team: Latham carries multiple certifications related to strength & conditioning, weighlifting, nutrition, and stretching. With the combination of his professional experience and his athletic experience (in addition to playing football, Latham also threw shot put, discus, and hammer in college), Latham established himself as an asset to Head Strength & Conditioning Coach Chad Englehart when he returned to the Redskins’ staff in January 2017.
