USA Gymnastics announces 2020 All-Americans, Coaches of the Year and Outstanding Senior awards for USA Gymnastics Men’s Collegiate Nationals
posted on 04/02/2020

INDIANAPOLIS, April 2, 2020 – Following an abbreviated 2020 men’s collegiate gymnastics season, which was cut short due to concerns over the spread of coronavirus, USA Gymnastics today announced All-American selections, Coaches of the Year and Outstanding Senior awards.

These individuals represent two institutional categories, Varsity and Collegiate. Varsity schools are DI, DII or DIII, four-year colleges and universities whose programs are designated varsity sports and who provide athletic scholarship funds up to the equivalent of two full out-of-state athletic scholarships. The military academies are also included in the Varsity category. Collegiate schools are two- or four-year degree-granting institutions whose gymnastics programs are not operated as varsity sports but are instead club sports.

While All-American selections are typically based on results from the USA Gymnastics Men’s Collegiate National Championships, given the truncated conclusion to the 2020 season, this year’s honorees were determined based on cumulative performance results tracked through rankings found on the Collegiate Gymnastics Association’s “Road to Nationals” website, the official statistical platform for reporting meet scores throughout the season.

The top-six all-around gymnasts in each category and the top-six individual-event finishers from the categories combined were named All-Americans.
