April 4, 2008

Colorado Springs, CO (March, 31, 2008)- The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) recently awarded Neil Trimm, from Neumann College Athletics, with its annual All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the year award-recognizing the student athletes dedication to strength training and conditioning.


This year, the NSCA awarded 239 collegiate athletes from 165 schools with this esteemed award. Trimm was selected by the strength coach Salvatore Capone, CSCS, who said, "Neil joined the Knights mid-season as a Freshman, appearing in 10 games and recording 10 goals and 8 assists, recorded the first NCAA goal against SUNY Cortland, had a 5 point game vs. Utica College with 3 goals and 2 assists, and was appointed 1st ECAC West All-Rookie Team.


As a sophomore in 2005-2006: He dressed in all 25 games recording 18 goals and 27 assists... recording 3 or more points in 8 games including a 4 goal game against Lebanon Valley. Neil finished the season with one of the highest points/game average in the nation (1.80), led the ECAC West conference in total points, and gained 1st ECAC West All Conference Team.


As a Junior 2006-2007: As our 2nd year Assistant Captain, Neil led the knights to the best record in  s school history, and first ever playoff win. Neil Trimm led the nation scoring 18 goals, 49 assists, and 67 points in the 2006 - 2007 season. He averaged 2-points a game and as a result has been named the 2006-2007 NCAA statistical champion for points per game and assists per game. He has been named 1st

Team All-American, 1st Team ECAC West.


Neil's dedication to off-season conditioning has helped him become one of the elite players in all of college hockey. His leadership on the ice and in the weight room has turned the Neumann Ice Hockey into a Nationally recognized NCAA Division III program. As a freshman Neil had very little experience with weight lifting or office training. Over the past two seasons, he has become one of the hardest working players in the weight room, and that hard work as paid off with all of his NCAA awards."


--Salvatore Capone, CSCS, NSCA Member


Robert Jursnick, NSCA's Executive Director adds, "The advantages of strength training and conditioning cannot be denied in collegiate athletics. These student-athletes attest to this understanding, and are to be applauded for their hard work and dedication."


The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award program is in its 29th year, and is made possible by a grant from Power Systems, Inc., a Knoxville, Tennessee fitness product leader.
