Meet Our Winners
Brett Crossland – 2020 ASSET Fall Scholarship
Brett is a graduate student majoring in Kinesiology. He says, “Upon completion of my degree, I hope to remain at TWU and use the skills and knowledge that I have acquired to continue to develop a Sports Science practice within our athletics department, while beginning to teach undergraduate level courses within the kinesiology department. In my 5 years at TWU I have grown to love my position and hope to make our Sports Performance department the first in NCAA Division II to have a fully integrated Sports Science department. This department will conduct research pertaining to the body’s response to exercise and incorporate a large number of factors including: nutrition, mental health, genetics, recovery modalities, and training tools. I am confident that the education I am receiving at TWU will equip me to meet these goals and prepare our student‐athletes to meet the demands of college athletics.”
