Nebraska is the only team that has had consecutive winners of both of these awards.Steinkuhler is one of eight Nebraska winners of the Outland Trophy and one of five Nebraska winners of the Lombardi Award. Strength Coaches at the start of my time at Wisconsin Athletics were myself, John Dettman and Steve Myrland (not pictured).Kennedy was at Ohio State and Texas A & M and is now with the Tampa Bay Bucs.We all worked full time plus and managed to pull off college at the same time as undergraduates!LSU back in '87, Jerry Schmidt, Randy Gobel, Mike Arthur, Boyd Epley, Dave Ellis and Dave Kennedy.Schmidt has won a title at Florida, Notre Dame and OU.Dett and I held down the fort in the Mc Clain Weight Room and Myrland covered the old weight room under the stadium at the time for some of the Olympic sports.In either case the weight rooms were under ground so you came in when it was dark and left when it was dark!
that broadened my sport exposures to Olympic, Pro and Military athletes.• Strength Staff UNL Athletics ‘82• Strength Staff Wisconsin Athletics ’90-‘93• Sports Nutrition Director UNL Athletics ’94-‘01• Started Private Practice ’01-Present I knew nutrition was going to be my direction from the time I arrived at the University of Nebraska back in January of '82, but back in those days you had to have some dual utility (strength or medicine) to find employment, so I tested the waters under Boyd Epley (UNL Strength Coach) and got traction after sending him this letter (yes from a typewriter).
On the left, Dave Rimington and on the far right is Dean Steinkuhler.
Rimington won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's top interior offensive or defensive lineman, in 19, and is its only two-time winner.
Steinkuhler attended the University of Nebraska, where he won the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's top offensive lineman, in 1983.
Steinkuhler also won the Lombardi Award in 1983, marking the second consecutive year a Nebraska player had won that award as Rimington had also won the Lombardi in 1982.
