Springfield College Will Have a Presence in Fourth Straight Super Bowl

Jon Torine Springfield, Mass. -- January 26, 2010 -- Jon Torine '95, the head strength and conditioning coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has guaranteed that Springfield College will own a presence in the Super Bowl for the fourth straight year. It will be Torine's second Super Bowl appearance. He also represented the Colts three years ago in the same capacity.

The Colts will play the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami on February 7. Ironically enough, the last time Indianapolis played in the Super Bowl -- Super Bowl XLI -- the game was also played in Miami. Two Sundays ago, the Colts defeated the New York Jets, 30-17, to win the NFL's American Conference title.

Torine graduated from Springfield College in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in exercise science. A native of Livingston, N.J., Jon is married and has two sons. Upon graduation, Torine was with the Buffalo Bills as a conditioning assistant through the 1997 season. In 1998, he joined the Colts and has now been with the organization for the past 12 years. He oversees all aspects of the club's strength, conditioning, and nutritional programs.

With the Colts, Torine is responsible for developing a year-round strength and conditioning routine for all players. He supervises players' diet/nutritional needs, and coordinates all meal plans home and away. He also assists the team's medical staff with the rehabilitation of injured players.

In 1999, Torine designed the club's 6000-square foot weight room at the club's training complex.

Last year, Springfield College was represented in Super Bowl XLIII by Kevin Spencer '75, special teams coach of the Arizona Cardinals when the Cardinals took on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Tampa.

In 2008, when the New England Patriots played the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII in Glendale, Arizona, Springfield College was represented three times. For the Giants, it was David Gettleman '72, Director of Pro Personnel, and Steve Spagnuolo '82, then-defensive coordinator (and now the head coach of the St. Louis Rams). For the Patriots, it was Mike Woicik G'80, head strength & conditioning coach.

In 2007, SC was also represented three times when the Colts played the Chicago Bears in Miami. As mentioned, Torine represented the Colts, while Rusty Jones '76, G'86, head strength & conditioning coach, and Jim Arthur '00, assistant strength & conditioning coach, represented the Bears.
