William & Mary's Stover Honored by NSCA
William and Mary standout defensive tackle Mike Stover was recently honored as a recipient of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) annual All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year award.
The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year program is in its 32nd year and recognizes student-athletes’ dedication to strength training and conditioning. Stover was selected for the honor by William and Mary speed, strength and conditioning coach John Sauer, CSCS,*D.
“Mike Stover came to William and Mary as a walk-on who started at defensive tackle as a 245-pound true freshman,” Sauer said. “Through a great deal of hard work in our strength and conditioning program, Mike has developed into one of the outstanding defensive tackles in the country on the FCS level. Mike is an extremely motivated individual with tremendous passion for the game and training. I have really enjoyed working with this young man the last four years.”
A second-team all-conference selection in 2010, the senior from Millersville, Pa., finished the regular season ranked fifth in the Colonial Athletic Association in tackles for a loss (12.0) and eighth in sacks (3.5). Additionally, he ranked fifth in the league among defensive linemen with 4.4 tackles per game.
