Faces of lockout: Harold Nash

On Wednesday, ESPN.com ran a "Faces of the Lockout" series which profiled various people around the NFL who are adversely affected by the lockout. My contribution from a Patriots perspective was coach Harold Nash.

Nash was the choice because of his dual role -- strength & conditioning coach and player programs.

This is Nash's first year as head strength coach as he takes over for Mike Woicik, who has six Super Bowl rings. Meanwhile, the Patriots' player programs have been recognized in recent years as some of the NFL's best.

But when there's a lockout, the opportunity to help players get bigger, faster and stronger, as well as helping them off the field, are locked out, too.
