"Strength and conditioning is key to top performance by our student-athletes, and it is a top priority for the department," said GW Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero.
In his Assistant Athletics Director role, Kenyon oversees strength and conditioning and nutrition for all 23 varsity sports. He is also the strength and conditioning coach for men's basketball, golf, gymnastics and men's water polo. Kenyon played basketball at Adelphi University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in sports management with a minor in exercise science.
Kenyon said Nero really understands the importance of strength and conditioning as a foundation.
"If you want to be at your best in competition, you must lay the foundation in the weight room," said Kenyon, who has been head Strength and Conditioning Coach for the last three years.
Kenyon also served as a graduate assistant at GW during the 2006-07 season, working with men's and women's basketball, soccer, men's golf, baseball and softball.
Kenyon returned to GW after serving as an assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, in 2007-08, where he worked with the Gators' men's and women's basketball, golf and tennis teams. He also was an intern at Rutgers during the summer of 2007, working primarily with the Scarlet Knights' football program.
Kenyon lettered in basketball for four seasons at Adelphi University from 2002-06. He played in 110 games and scored 500 points in helping the Panthers to three NCAA Division II Tournament appearances (2003, 2005-06), a New York Collegiate Athletic Conference (NYCAC) Tournament championship in 2006 and an 86-34 composite record. Kenyon received his bachelor's degree in sports management from Adelphi in 2006.
