The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) recently recognized 151 student athletes with the All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year Award-recognizing the dedication of student athletes, both in and out of the weight room. Strength coaches from 73 colleges and universities nominated athletes from 19 competitive sport categories. Each coach selected his or her top male and female athlete for this award based on their dedication to strength training and conditioning, athletic accomplishments, academic and personal achievements, community involvement, and leadership qualities.

The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award program is in its 20th year, and is made possible by a grant from Power Systems, Inc., a Knoxville, Tennessee fitness product leader. For a complete list of All-American Strength and Conditioning Athletes, contact the NSCA at 800-815-6826, or
