The National Strength and Conditioning Association recently announced its annual All-American Strength and Conditioning Athletes of the Year, and four Drexel student-athletes have garnered recognition for the accomplishment. Vincent Anagnos of golf, Renee Johnson-Allen of women’s basketball, Kevin Matyas of wrestling and Aaron Prosser of men’s lacrosse were recognized by the NSCA  for their dedication to strength training and conditioning.

The four honorees from Drexel were singled out by the Director of Strength and Conditioning for the Dragons, Michael Rankin. In praising the quartet of Dragons, Rankin said that each student-athlete has worked etremely hard to improve themselves in the weight room, and each one “embodies what the Drexel University strength and conditioning program is all about.” He continued, “It has been a privilege to work with such amazing student-athletes.”

The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award program is in its 34th year. Boyd Epley, the founder of the NSCA, said “The advantages of strength training and conditioning cannot be denied in collegiate and high school athletics. The NSCA is pleased to recognize student-athletes that put forth an effort to improve their performance through strength and conditioning. They are to be applauded for their hard work and dedication.”
