EMORY, Va. – Emory & Henry College Strength & Conditioning Coach Josh Bullock has resigned to assume a position with the United States Ski Team. In his new role of Director of Strength & Conditioning of the freestyle mogul team, Bullock will lead the training for members of the U.S. National Ski Team, including past and future Olympians.
"My three years at Emory & Henry have been some of the most rewarding of my career," commented Bullock. "I feel blessed to have worked with such a great group of coaches, trainers, and support staff. Most importantly, it has truly been my honor and pleasure to serve our student-athletes."
Bullock joined the E&H Department of Athletics in August of 2014 as the College's first-ever full-time strength & conditioning coach. During his time with the Wasps, he worked tirelessly to make the Robert W. Gibson, III Weight Room a place where Emory & Henry student-athletes could train with top of the line equipment and instilled in them a culture of hard work and accountability.
"We are extremely thankful for the hard work and dedication that Josh showed to Emory & Henry," said Interim Director of Athletics and Head Women's Basketball Coach Anne Crutchfield. "The increased success experienced by all of our teams over the past three years is, without a doubt, in part because of the strength & conditioning program."
During the 2016-17 academic year alone, seven Emory & Henry teams finished in the top half of the ODAC including five inside the top four. Two programs reached ODAC Championship games while the Wasps saw the softball team receive a bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament and sent a member of the women's swimming team to the NCAA Division III Championship for the second year in a row.
"In my time at E&H I am most proud of the process we went through to achieve at a high level," Bullock added. "It would be impossible to count the all the reps, early mornings, and late nights by all involved. To all those who contributed to the success and growth of the program, I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Emory & Henry is currently in the midst of a search for its next strength & conditioning coach.
