Football Players Gain Size and Strength Over 4 Years But Not Power and Speed?

A recent NSCA Journal article was summarized in Science Daily

Through Four Years Training College Football Players Gain Strength and Size

The gist of the article was that strength and size increased while speed and power did not?

Two questions for anyone familiar with the study or, the Oklahoma State S+C program.

1- What type of training was done?

2- Did the study look at power just by VJ and 40 time or, did they look at relative power via Sayers/ Lewis formula.

I believe that an athlete who gains size and maintains speed and VJ gains power?

Feedback would be appreciated.
