Lennon Named An NSCA Athlete of the Year

Senior goalkeeper Nolan Lennon was named a 2019 All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He is the only Division I men’s soccer player to receive the honor.

Lennon has demonstrated tremendous resilience during his career, battling back from three ACL surgeries. The senior’s fight was rewarded last season as he earned his first varsity letter as a Clemson Tiger.

“He has spent countless hours in the weight room during his career and has consistently dedicated himself to his physical preparation,” said strength and conditioning coach Rick Franzblau. “His hard work and dedication towards building the Clemson’s men’s soccer culture has not gone unnoticed.”

Lennon’s commitment to the Tigers and leadership on the pitch is evident to coaches, teammates and fans, and the senior earned the position of team captain for the upcoming fall season.

In the weight room, Lennon is one of the strongest guys on the team and is among the top players on the team in bench press and split squat. The goalkeeper also leads the team in vertical jump and is among the team leaders in the 30-meter sprint.
