Athletes, Parents, and Supporters of Tennessee Aquatics,
It is a great honor to announce that Caleb Harrington is a recipient of 2018 NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award. This award is given by the National Strength and Conditioning Association in recognition of athletes that excel in sport, strength and conditioning programs, the classroom, and the community. I have had the pleasure of coaching Caleb over the last 3 years during dryland training. During that time, I have seen his athleticism develop and mature to the point that he leads our team in almost every strength & conditioning category. Caleb shows up for every training session with a positive attitude and a drive to better himself. He exemplifies servant leadership through his hard work, encouragement for others, and his willingness to provide tutelage to younger swimmers. All these positive attributes, combined with scholarship and community service, are why I nominated this young man for the NSCA All-American Award.
The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) is an international nonprofit professional association founded in 1978 and is dedicated advancing the profession by supporting strength and conditioning professionals devoted to helping others discover and maximize their strengths. The organization disseminates research-based knowledge and its practical application by offering industry-leading certifications, research journals, career development services and continuing education opportunities. The NSCA community is composed of more than 45,000 members and certified professionals who further industry standards as researchers, educators, strength coaches, personal trainers and roles in related fields.
