Dengel and Bosch honored for research article on NFL player body composition

Dr. Donald Dengel, professor of kinesiology and director of the Laboratory of Integrative Human Physiology (LIHP) [pictured above], and Tyler Bosch, doctoral candidate [pictured below] are recipients of the Scientific Manuscript Excellence Honor: Gary A. Dudley Memorial Paper for their article "Body Composition and Bone Mineral Density of National Football League Players." Their research, published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, examined the body composition of National Football League (NFL) players before the start of their regular season. The findings are a template for future studies examining fat, lean, and bone mass in NFL players.

The Gary A. Dudley Memorial Paper is one of the highest honors the National Strength and Conditioning Association gives for scholarship and is named after one of the pioneers in modern exercise physiology research.
