LAKELAND, Fla.—Southeastern University Director of Athletics Drew Watson has announced Akeem Robinson as the new Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Robinson comes to SEU from New Mexico State, where he has spent the last six years as an assistant strength coach and then director of Olympic sports. He has also served as the director of sports psychology for the Aggies since 2016.
“Akeem brings a higher-level perspective to Fire strength and conditioning that will immediately benefit each of our 18 programs,” said Watson. “From understanding what it takes to succeed as a Division I student-athletes to his role in helping New Mexico State reach its first bowl game in 57 years, he understands that building strength is just as much mental as it is physical. I’m excited to have him here.”
Robinson earned his Master’s from the University of Missouri where he worked as a graduate assistant, working with football, cross country, and track and field performance training. Additionally, he helped with social responsibility initiative, “Men for Men,” and was the Fellowship of Christian Athletes liaison for the strength staff.
“I’m so excited to be part of the Fire family,” said Robinson. “SEU has created such a spiritually-driven and championship mindset. I’m so excited to be a part of what the athletic department is doing.”
During his undergrad, Robinson was a four-year letter winner for Tommy Bowden at Clemson University, and played in four bowl games.
