BBD, what if your friend's son used jump soles or similar calf intensive workout plan??? I ask, b/c I have known several people add several inches to their vertical with this. Pushing his vert into the 40s would be some serious leaping ability.
Spot on ... Spot on. Couldnt of said that any better myself
For those of us with large ankles...just strap a cheetah to your back. They have skinny ankles lol

All you have to do is look at a race horse and a clydesdale. Natures answer.
It is the length of the achilles tendon that gives the explosion. Those athletes with the high calves have an elongated achilles tendon and are more explosive with jumping and quick movements. This is why having "skinny ankles" is a good thing.
You get out of it what you put into it!
I've never used jump soles but have a few friends that have. In terms of training, there are so many ways to skin a cat and different regimens work better for different people. I will look into the jump soles though. Thanks for the suggestion.
I tried to get him on a good plyometrics routine this summer but not sure if what he's doing at Hutch overlaps it or perhaps prevents him from doing it. Not sure of the specifics of the Hutch workout but I know it's very early...like 5am or so during the offseason.
