WASHINGTON - Georgetown University assistant sports performance coach Trevor Williams was the recipient of the Inaugural Lance Vermeil Scholarship Award by the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches association (CSCCa) at the 12th annual national conference recently in Orlando, Florida.

This honor was established by one of the CSCCa sponsors, M-F Athletic/Perform Better, in memory of Lance Vermeil. Vermeil was an extremely qualified and dedicated young strength & conditioning coach who was committed to the profession of collegiate strength and conditioning coaching and to serving and protecting the student-athlete.

Williams was nominated for the award by his mentor, Georgetown Director of Sports Performance Mike Hill.

"Trevor is an individual who has demonstrated that he possesses the outstanding qualities and skills necessary to be a successful and effective coach," Hill said. "He has tremendous potential and is a great fit for this profession. We obviously felt he was a very deserving candidate and we're really happy that he was recognized for the hard work he has put in here at Georgetown."

A part-time assistant coach for the Georgetown Athletics program, Williams came to the Hilltop in 2011 to complete an internship through the CSCCa. After successfully passing the CSCCa exam, he was hired and this year worked with all 29 intercollegiate sports, but with specific oversight of four teams, including serving as an assistant with the Hoya football program.

His passion for the profession has lead him to create a whole new look for the GU Iron Hoyas Department and he has created an outreach program working with local organizations and their strength training. Chief among those was his work with the Fort Meyer Arlington Cemetery Honor Guard Platoon members, who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

In addition, he has created outreach programs with the Fairfax County Virginia SWAT Team, the Fairfax County Organized Crime and Narcotics Division of the Special Crimes Unit and Wounded Warriors, as well as creating a YouTube presence for Iron Hoyas.

"Trevor has personified what our profession has come to in that he has been working multiple jobs and hours for the love of helping athletes reach their potential and to earn a coaching position," Hill said. "He has committed full-time hours in a part-time position and has been a tremendous asset for our staff, coaches and student-athletes."

Williams was presented with the award by Al Vermeil, the father of Lance Vermeil and a former strength & conditioning coach for the NBA's Chicago Bulls who is considered a legend in the field of strength & conditioning.
