Colorado Springs, Colo. - The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) is proud to announce Clemson senior Torie Robinson as a 2018 All-American Athlete of the Year Award recipient. This award recognizes Robinson’s athletic accomplishments and her dedication to strength and conditioning. Nominated by Clemson strength & conditioning coach Stephanie Mock, Robinson’s determination to improve in athletics while maintaining academic prominence is a great model for all student-athletes at Clemson.
“We are proud to have Stephanie Mock join the NSCA to ensure athlete safety and improve athletic performance,” says Coach Scott Caulfield, the NSCA’s Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, “Supporting NSCA-certified coaches and student-athletes like Torie Robinson is the foundation the NSCA is built on.”
“Along with Torie's achievements on the track, she has consistently dedicated herself all four years in the weight room at the highest level including completing an internship with Clemson Olympic sports strength and conditioning this summer,” said Mock. “Being a short sprinter, Torie is without a doubt one of the most powerful females we have in our weight room here at Clemson, which she has demonstrated this through her 180-pound power clean and 280-pound squat. Most importantly, Torie has set a tremendous example for all of our incoming freshman as to what level of focus and commitment is needed to be a successful track and field athlete not only on the track but in the weight room. We are very lucky to have her here at Clemson University.”
