Meet the Author

Boyd Epley is the associate athletic director for athletic performance and facility development at the University of Nebraska. A legend at Nebraska and a pioneer in his field, Epley started Husker Power for the Husker football team in 1969. His strength programs have had positive effects on millions of athletes while he has worked behind the scenes with a mission to move athletes to a new level, never be satisfied, always stay focused, and always look for new innovation and research.

In 1969, Epley became the first person to carry the title of strength coach in what was then the Big Eight Conference. In 1978, Epley founded the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He hosted the first national convention and served as president and chairman of the board of directors for five years. In 1980, Epley was the first to be named the national strength coach of the year, and in 1993 he was presented the NSCA's first Lifetime Achievement Award. He was also honored by the Nebraska Football Hall of Fame in 1993 with the Lyell Bremser Award, and in 1999 he was named as one of the top 100 people to have influenced college football in the last 100 years. In 2003 he was named to the College Strength Coaches Hall of Fame.

Epley lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, with his wife, Jane. They have two children, Jay and Jenna.
