Four Chippewas Named Strength and Conditioning All-Americans

MOUNT PLEASANT - Four Central Michigan University student-athletes have been named recipients of the All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year award.

Steve Brown (wrestling), Cheryl Conlin (gymnastics), Colin Miller (football) and Valerie Prause (soccer) have each been recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

CMU's quartet of honorees is among 232 student-athletes from 106 schools recognized by the NSCA this year with the All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year award. The awards are based on nominations submitted by the strength and conditioning staff at each institution.

Brown is a three-time Mid-American Conference champion who earned All-America honors as a senior in 2010. He placed eighth at 157 pounds at the 2010 NCAA Championships.

Conlin shared the floor exercise title at the 2010 MAC Championships, helping lead the Chippewas to their 11th MAC gymnastics title. She was CMU's top performer on the floor at the NCAA Regionals.

Miller, entering his fourth year as a starter on the Chippewas' offensive line, was an All-MAC second team selection in 2009. He helped lead CMU to its third MAC title in four seasons in 2009 and a victory in the GMAC Bowl.

Prause was an All-MAC first team selection as a midfielder in 2009, a season in which the Chippewas won the MAC regular season and tournament titles. She tallied nine points on two goals and five assists last season.
