Pulling exercises that I've found compatible other than DLs, power & squat cleans: Pendlay rows, weighted pull-ups and chin-ups.

If they do a lot of push-ups in the academy, I'd suggest using those as your pushing exercise at least one of those days a week. Or simply do a good bit of them as part of a warm-up.

I do an SS-inspired workout twice a week, I use back squats one day, front squats the other. I think it works well and keeps my OL-related strength moving forward at the same time. I think it is an incredible program--I simply tweaked it slightly to my wants.
