COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Men's basketball senior Andrew Hogue (Arroyo Grande, Calif. / Arroyo Grande) has been named a 2015 All-American Athlete Award recipient by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and EAS Sports Nutrition.
The All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year Award program recognizes collegiate and high school athletes whose athletic accomplishments, in the opinion of their strength coach, reflect their dedication to strength training and conditioning. These athletes are also recognized for their academic and personal accomplishments and their integrity as student athletes.
Hogue's physical strength, body mass gains and cardiovascular fitness drove his accomplishments on the court in leading the most successful Beavers team in the last 54 years. As a senior co-captain, he demonstrated outstanding drive, competitive edge and positive attitude every day, but most apparent was his excellent leadership as he mentored his teammates in both basketball and life skills. His commitment to strength- and fitness-building was a critical component in his on-court success, as evidenced by his increases in rebounds per game (3.7 to 7.9) and assists per game (1.0 to 2.6) over his career, culminating in his leading the SCIAC in total rebounds as a senior. His contributions helped the team record its most conference wins (three) since 1960-61 and equal the team's total number of conference wins over the previous 44 years.
Hogue will be recognized in the NSCA's annual All-American Strength and Conditioning Athletes of the Year book at nsca.com.
