The 22-year-old product from LSU aims to make an even bigger splash with the Miami Dolphins in 2015.

Jarvis Landry's Offseason Training

Miami Dolphins second-year wide receiver Jarvis Landry made a big splash for the “Fins” during his rookie campaign. The 22-year-old caught 84 passes in his first NFL season, which was just seven shy of breaking the Dolphins’ record for most receptions by a wide receiver in team history. However, personal goals are the last thing on his mind. Becoming a more reliable weapon for his team, which went 8-8 in 2014, is more important.

“I want to become a go-to wide receiver for this football team and make big plays,” said Landry. “Those goals will come, but right now I’m more focused on wins.”

Landry is destined for big things on the gridiron and is set to be become the star of a wide receiver corps that lost Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson and Brian Hartline from last season. In order to make sure the LSU standout and former second-round pick accomplishes those goals, he employed the help of Pete Bommarito, owner and president of Bommarito Performance.

Bommarito has trained both collegiate and professional athletes from a wide range of sports for over a decade. As for football, he has worked with a multitude of players ranging from Pro Bowlers like New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, to Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte.

Bommarito’s relationship with Landry was forged prior to the latter’s participation in the 2014 NFL Combine. Landry didn’t work with Bommarito for the combine specifically, but his brother stayed in touch him, which played a part in the former working with him this offseason.

Landry, along with countless other players like Pittsburgh Steelers downfield threat Antonio Brown, are treated to an assortment of features at Bommarito’s facility, which is also located on the same grounds as the Dolphin’s training center.

“The main thing that we like to do is do full interviews with players when they come in. What specifically do they want to focus on – their goals,” Bommarito said. “More importantly, we do a full medical evaluation, across 14 different medical disciplines. We identify what their weaknesses are; not weaknesses in terms of being not strong, I’m talking about flexibility and mobility issues – joint integrity.”
