Perhaps sensing that he may be due for an increased role this season, Cullen said he stepped up his offseason conditioning. The three-sport athlete (track, baseball) is stronger and faster than last season.

“I did get stronger,” Cullen said. “I trained a lot more in the offseason to get ready for this season. I was smarter about running. I’m ready to go.”
