Hammer Strength, in partnership with the CSCCa, developed the Hammer Strength All
American Athlete Award in 2013 to recognize the most outstanding college athletes
who exemplify the best of what it takes, on and off the field, to become
an elite athlete. The strength and conditioning coaching staff at each
institution is encouraged to collaborate in selecting one male and one
female athlete to receive this award and to be considered for the second annual All
American Athlete of the Year Award for 2014.
What the Winner Looks Like
Athletes to be considered for this award are characterized by intensity,
consistency of purpose, achievement, and teamwork. These athletes are
superior performers on the field/court who exemplify the best of what it
takes to become fierce competitors. They exhibit tremendous work ethic
and leadership skills. They motivate their teammates to excel and perform
at their best. Leaders by example, these student athletes have strong
academic standing and exhibit good sportsmanship. They are dedicated to
their sport—tireless workers in pursuit of excellence—translating
everything they accomplish, be it in the strength and conditioning arena
or the classroom, to performance on the field/court.
