Without American football to play, the throws become the ideal workout for big people in Jamaica.
I could agree with that; however, the Jamaican youth champion, Dacres is a skinny kid with VERY LONG ARMS - which is a better asset than just being big..
But coaching has a lot to do with it and the DT coach in Jamaica is doing a phenomenal job. In the last few years they've done things in the DT and SP that is making Jamaica look almost Cuba-like.
