COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (5/2/08) University of North Texas football player Brock Stickler was recently awarded the All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year award by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Stickler was one of 239 collegiate athletes honored by the NSCA for his dedication to strength training and conditioning.
“Over the past three years, I have seen Brock build his way up to becoming an excellent athlete, student and person,” said assistant strength coach Troy Ramsey. “He has always brought everything he can give into the weight room everyday and that is all we have ever asked of him.”
Stickler started every game at wide receiver for the Mean Green, tallying 37 catches for 391 yards. One of only seven returning three-year letterwinners for North Texas, Stickler had his best game of his career last season against Louisiana-Lafayette with 98 yards receiving on nine catches and one touchdown.
