http://www.mgoblue.com/genrel/050713aaa.html Title says most of it. Thirteen UM athletes were named to the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) All-American Player of the Year status. Among them was Jon Horford.

 Strength coach Jon Sanderson on Jon Horford ... "Jon Horford has a relentless drive to be the best in the weight room and on the court. He has made tremendous gains in his time at Michigan improving in every area that we test. His vertical jump has improved by four inches and his back squat has improved by 135 lbs., among others. He is a high-character kid and a joy to coach."

Awesome to see all the athletes working hard.

If Michigan athletes took home 13 of the 229 available awards, then that's about 5%, if I am not mistaken. It's a tribute to the S&C programs as well as the staff who run them and the athletes who use them. Excellent work all around, and congratulations to these athletes.

Despite all the injuries he sufferred, he has shown consistent progress when he is on the court, provide quality minutes offensively and defensively.
