HEAD COACH RANDY JEPSON Head Coach

Randy

JEPSON 21st Year at Penn State Penn State, 1982 CAREER RECORD: 300-61

Under the direction of Randy Jepson, the 2000, 2004, and 2007 National Coach of the Year, the Penn State men’s gymnastics program has carried on the proud tradition of excellence and achievement established by its forebearers. After guiding his teams to three national championships and two Big Ten titles, Jepson serves as a symbol of Penn State’s vaunted gymnastics heritage. Testament to his impact upon and dedication to the Penn State program and the sport overall, Jepson received the prestigious CGA Honor Coach Award in 2011. Bestowed annually, the Honor Coach Award recognizes CGA member coaches with 25 years or more of service to the sport of gymnastics. Presented with the honor at the NCAA/CGA Awards Banquet in April, Jepson received a special introduction by Bill Ballister, his coach and mentor at the University of Oregon. A member of the coaching staff since 1983, Jepson was appointed head coach on July 6, 1992, succeeding long-time head coach Karl Schier. During Jepson’s coaching tenure at his alma mater, Penn State studentathletes have earned All-America honors 97 times. He has also mentored 17 individual national champions, including Mark Sohn, the first gymnast to win four-consecutive pommel horse national championships. Jepson also championed the renovation efforts of the White Building, transforming the facility into the top collegiate training site in the country. JEPSON’S BACKGROUND Before his appointment as acting head coach, Jepson spent six seasons as an assistant to former head coach Karl Schier, who retired on October 1, 1991. Jepson is the sixth head coach in the 72-year history of the Penn State men’s gymnastics program and only the third in the last 64 years. Gene Wettstone coached from 1939-76 and was succeeded by Schier, one of his former athletes who served from 1977-91. Jepson earned the prestigious honor on April of 1991, the year he was named Assistant Coach of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches for his outstanding work. Seven months prior to that, he coached Mike Masucci to a gold medal in the all-around as head coach of the U.S. team that participated in the Cup of Puerto Rico international meet in San Juan. Masucci also captured gold medals in four events. A native of Portland, Ore., Jepson lettered for three years at the University of Oregon and was an NCAA finalist on the rings his sophomore year. He transferred to Penn State in 1982, when the Ducks dropped their gymnastics program. In his one season as a Nittany Lion, Jepson was captain and won All-America honors on rings. A Nissen-Award nominee as a senior, Jepson posted a perfect score of 10.0 on rings in a meet against a team from the Soviet Union in 1983 at Rec Hall. Jepson joined the Lions’ coaching staff as a graduate assistant in 1983 and worked in that capacity for two seasons. His first season as an assistant coach was 1985-86. Jepson has been instrumental in guiding Penn State gymnastics to berths 4

PENN STATE 2012 • MEN’S GYMNASTICS

on the U.S. Senior National and Developmental squads, and in addition was a member of the 1997 and 2005 USA World Championships coaching staff. A member of the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches, Jepson served as secretary and treasurer of the United States Elite Coaches Association. In years past, Jepson has served men’s program director at Woodward Gymnastics Camp in Woodward, Pa. In addition, Jepson directed the North team that won the gold medal at the 1993 United States Olympic Festival. Jepson has also been heavily involved in national team training camps, helping to prepare teams for the 1999 World Championships in China and the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. He was also selected as assistant coach for the 1999 Pan American Games team in Winnipeg, Canada. In 2006, Jepson served as an assistant coach for Team USA at the World Championships and in a meet versus France and Switzerland. In February of 2008, Jepson served as head coach of a six-man U.S. team in a dual meet versus Canada, leading the Americans to victory. Later that year, countless hours spent overseeing the training of world class gymnast and Penn State assistant coach Kevin Tan paid off for Jepson, as Tan realized a lifelong dream by earning a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team. Jepson served as Tan’s personal coach, accompanying him to Beijing, China for the 2008 Summer Games, where he captured a bronze medal in the team competition. Jepson received his master’s degree from Penn State in exercise sport and science, with an emphasis in biomechanics, in 1990. He and his wife, Sue, a Penn State alum, and their four children - Adam and Anna, who both currently attend Penn State, Emily, and Maggie - reside in Centre Hall. JEPSON’S CAREER/YEAR-BY-YEAR 2011 • Penn State went undefeated at home in Rec Hall, claiming wins over Army, defending national champion Michigan, Springfield College, and Ohio State; knocked off two-time reigning Big Ten champion Illinois, Minnesota, and Iowa on the road; and won its 13th consecutive West Point Open crown. The Nittany Lions also traveled to San Juan for an international dual meet with the Puerto Rico National Team. Penn State established a season-high team score of 356.750 in a tri-meet at Oklahoma. • Penn State placed second in its qualifying session at the National Collegiate Championships to advance to the team finals for the first time since 2008. The Nittany Lions used a record-setting performance in the still rings, scoring a 62.300, to qualify. Penn State finished in sixth place at the team finals. • Four Nittany Lions earned All-America recognition at the National Collegiate Championships, the most since 2007. Wasef Burbar (high bar), Miguel Pineda (still rings), Parker Raque (floor exercise, vault), and Scott Rosenthal (still rings) each secured All-America honors for the first time in his career. • Junior Parker Raque came through in the clutch for Penn State at the National Collegiate Championships, setting career highs in three events (floor exercise, still rings, vault) to lead the Nittany Lions. In the individual event finals, he scored a career best 15.400 in the floor exercise and tied a personal high that he set in the national qualifier in the vault (16.050) to earn All-America honors in each event. • Penn State placed fourth at the Big Ten Championships, highlighted by a conference-high team rings score of 60.650. Junior Scott Rosenthal placed second in the still rings in the individual event finals, earning Second Team All-Big Ten honors. • Jepson was recognized with the 2011 College Gymnastics Association Honor Coach Award at the NCAA/CGA Award Banquet in Columbus, Ohio in April. The Honor Coach Award is bestowed annually to CGA member coaches with 25 years or more of service to the sport of gymnastics.

HEAD COACH RANDY JEPSON • Junior Miguel Pineda not only excelled in the competition arena but also in the classroom in 2011. A science major, he was honored as the NCAA Elite 88 Award winner and was named to the CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-America and CGA All-America Scholar Athlete First Teams. In addition, Pineda was a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award recipient and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors for the second straight year. • A standout competitive season in 2011 was only surpassed by the team’s performance in the classroom. The Nittany Lions earned the Penn State Varsity “S” Award and boasted 11 CGA All-American Scholar Athletes, nine Academic All-Big Ten honorees, and three Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award recipients. 2010 • With a multitude of injuries of varying degrees to a host of veterans, Penn State was forced to rely heavily on its talented freshman class in 2010. Of the 452 total routines performed by Nittany Lion gymnasts, 237 were contributed by true freshmen or 52 percent. If sophomores (or gymnasts with two years or fewer of competitive collegiate experience) were included, that number jumps to 327, meaning underclassmen accounted for a remarkable 72 percent of Penn State routines. • The Nittany Lions opened the season by winning their 12th consecutive West Point Open. Penn State also gained a home victory over William & Mary and swept a tri-meet versus Minnesota and Temple at Rec Hall. Penn State established a season-high team score of 354.450 in a home loss to Oklahoma. • Felix Aronovich was named Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Year, becoming the first Nittany Lion to receive the conference award since Mike Dutka in 1997. Aronovich competed in every meet, earning 13 top three finishes, including seven titles. • At the Big Ten Championships, Penn State overtook two higher ranked teams, including host Ohio State, to place a surprising third. Senior Nick Virbitsky earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors, contributing Penn State’s top showing in the individual event finals by placing second in the floor exercise. • In his final performance as a collegiate athlete, senior Noam Shaham finished sixth in the high bar in the individual finals of the National Collegiate Championships to earn his first career All-America honor.

• Twelve Nittany Lions, an impressive 60 percent of the 2010 roster, were honored as CGA All-America Scholar Athletes. Nine received first team accolades, including Miguel Pineda and Logan Wyman, who were two of just four gymnasts nationwide to earn perfect 4.0 GPAs, while three were recognized on the second team. In addition, Pineda, Wyman, Noam Shaham and Philip Harris were named Big Ten Distinguished Scholars and eight Nittany Lions received Academic All-Big Ten honors. 2009 • The Nittany Lions began the season by winning their 11th consecutive West Point Open. The 2009 home schedule was highlighted by a 348.900348.350 victory over Big Ten rival Michigan, which would go on to finish second at the National Collegiate Championships. Penn State established a season-high team score of 356.300 in a loss at Oklahoma. • Casey Sandy penned the final chapter of one of the most storied careers in the vaunted history of Penn State men’s gymnastics with a stellar senior year. He captured 29 titles, including seven in the pommel horse and six in the parallel bars. He tied the single season conference record by earning five Big Ten Gymnast of the Week awards and shattered the career mark for winning a total of 11 league honors. In the midst of his exceptional senior season, Sandy also was able to further his international gymnastics career by winning the all-around on both days at the Elite Canada 2009 thereby securing himself a roster spot on the Canadian National Team. Sandy’s march towards history and assault on the Penn State record book was slowed only by injury, as he suffered a severe toe sprain at the Big Ten Championships. Refusing to be hindered by the injury, he gutted out a win in the all-around in the qualifier at the National Collegiate Championships. Sandy then went on to earn his eighth and ninth All-America honors of his career with top eight finishes in all-around and vault finals. • Sandy’s brilliant season and exceptional career culminated with him being presented with the 2009 Nissen-Emery Award, becoming Penn State’s NCAA-record sixth recipient of the sport’s most prestigious honor. He was also named Penn State Male Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive time. • Five Nittany Lions (four on the first team) were recognized as All-America Scholar Athletes by the College Gymnastics Association while six received Academic All-Big Ten honors.

HEAD COACH RANDY JEPSON 1995 • Penn State’s third-place trophy at the NCAA Championships was the Nittany Lions’ top performance under Jepson to date and the best outcome since finishing second in 1991. Two Lions, Tony Pansy and Tom Ellefson, earned All-America honors on the parallel bars. • Jepson’s NCAA East Regional Championships came on his home floor. The Lions finished fourth at the Big Ten Championships at Illinois, as Pansy and Lee Ricketts were co-champions on the horizontal bar with 9.80 marks. • The team was recognized for having the 10th-highest team grade point average in the country among men’s gymnastics teams. The 3.009 the Nittany Lions carried was the best in the Big Ten and second among teams competing in the NCAA Championships. Furthermore, sophomore Joe Roemer was one of 49 recognized as All-America scholar-athlete.

Jepson and Miguel Pineda were honored at the 2011 NCAA/CGA Award Banquet. Jepson was presented with the CGA Honor Coach Award for 2011 while Pineda earned the NCAA Elite 88 Award.

1998 • Despite numerous injuries, the Nittany Lions rolled through the 1998 regular season with an 11-3 record (tied for fifth-most wins in school history), including a then-school record 231.150 in a win over Nebraska. • Seemingly rejuvenated by the return of all-arounder Mike Dutka in late February, Penn State entered the postseason poised for a run at a national championship. Behind the strength of Dutka’s four individual titles, the Lions nearly won the Big Ten crown, placing second to Iowa by less than a point. However, Dutka went down on vault at the NCAA East Regional with a broken foot. Penn State ended up finishing fourth to the Hawkeyes by .05. • Five Lions still managed to qualify as individuals for the NCAA Championships in the Bryce Jordan Center. Ron Roeder emerged as a star, earning All-America honors on the floor exercise and rings, while Brandon Stefaniak was an All-America on pommel horse with sixth-place finish. 1997 • Jepson led a mix of youth and experience to a fifth-place showing at the NCAA Championships. J.M. Michel earned All-America honors on the high bar with a sixth-place finish. Mike Dutka, who Jepson coached at the World Championships over the summer, finished only 0.075 points away from becoming an All-American in the all-around. • The Nittany Lions placed third at both the Big Ten Championships and the NCAA East Regional. During the regular season, Dutka earned a spot on the U.S. Senior National Team at the Winter Cup in February. In addition, captain Joe Roemer became the first Penn State gymnast to ever earn GTE Academic All-America honors, garnering a spot on the second team.

1994 • Capturing third place at both the Big Ten and the NCAA East Regional Championships, the Nittany Lions advanced to the 1994 NCAA Championships, where they finished sixth. 1993 • At the 1993 NCAA East Regional, Penn State posted its second-highest score of the season, but was unable to crack the top three in the team standings. Thus, for the first time since 1977, Penn State did not field a team at the NCAA Championships. The school’s streak of 15-consecutive appearances in the NCAA meet was the nation’s longest entering the season. • Two Nittany Lions represented the program at the NCAA Championships. Senior captain Mike Masucci placed 11th on parallel bars and 16th on pommel horse. Sophomore Joel Neuwirth was 20th on the pommel horse. • The Nittany Lions placed sixth at the Big Ten Championships. Masucci reached the finals on three events, sharing the high bar title with a score of 9.725 and was named All-Big Ten. 1992 • As acting head coach during the 1992 season, Jepson directed Penn State to a fifth-place showing at the Big Ten Championships and fourth place in the NCAA East Regional.

Whether it’s in the classroom or in the gym, the only way for a student-athlete to reach his full potential is through honest, hard work…a lot of it. The Penn State athletic administration has done an outstanding job over the years in providing our program with the resources, coaching staff, and facilities we need to reach the highest levels of success in our sport both in the NCAA program and in the international arena as well. Additionally, our teams face the nation’s stiffest competition year after year to challenge our athletes as they prepare to become the nation’s finest gymnasts. With this foundation to build on, the staff prepares our athletes through the most up-to-date training techniques available. Every year it is our goal to be the strongest and most physically prepared team in the country. Our comprehensive strength and conditioning program has enabled our teams to continually meet this challenge. We also believe that to be on top, our athletes need to perform quality gymnastics and not do just enough to “get by.” Therefore, we emphasize skills appropriate for the

challenges of today’s code of points and continually stress the importance of consistent, solid routine performance. Academically speaking, our student athletes are provided with a wide variety of resources to ensure that they have every opportunity to experience success in the classroom in addition to the gym. The Morgan Academic Support Center is provided exclusively for Penn State student athletes and offers academic advising, a free tutorial service, priority scheduling, and a Freshman Enrichment Program designed to better enable the first-year student to handle the transitions and academic challenges facing the collegiate freshman athlete. At Penn State, we have built a reputation as a leader in the development of the student athlete and firmly believe that academic and athletic success go hand in hand, are attainable, and are expected. With all of the various resources available to our student athletes to ensure success the only remaining key is their own commitment, sacrifice, and effort. It is this hard work…and lots of it…that has and will continue to enable them to achieve their academic and competitive dreams.

ASSISTANT COACH SLAVA BOIKO Assistant Coach

Slava

BOIKO 16th Year at Penn State

A valued member of the coaching staff for the past 15 seasons, Slava Boiko brings a wealth of international competitive and coaching experience to the Penn State staff. Riding the successes of the Nittany Lions’ winning ways, Boiko assisted in bringing back the 2000 NCAA Championship to Penn State as well as capturing the team’s 11th and 12th title in 2004 and 2007. His focus is on technique and execution of skills and routines. “Slava is the consummate technician,” said Penn State head coach Randy Jepson. “His experience and his knowledge, in terms of technical expertise, are unparalleled in the entire world. There isn’t anything that he doesn’t know about the technical aspects of gymnastics. His wealth of knowledge and experience are tremendous assets to us.” Boiko was a member of the Soviet Union National Team from 1969-76, winning 13 national championships during that span. After retiring from competition, Boiko was the men’s gymnastics national coach and the head coach in the Center of Sport Club of Army in Moscow. Following that, he was the head coach of the Israeli National Team. From 1972 until 1992, he was involved in coaching four Olympic team champions and eight World Team Championships squads as a member of the USSR and Russian coaching staffs. Boiko earned the distinction of International Master of Sport in 1983 and he also coached 20 gymnasts who went on to receive the same honor. In addition, 30 athletes won Soviet and Russian National Titles under his tutelage. It’s not just in State College or the former Soviet Union where Boiko is recognized and revered.

“I get nothing but the highest regard for Mr. Boiko as I travel,” Jepson said. “He is one of the foremost coaches in the world and brought up some of the best gymnasts the Soviet Union has produced. Having him here is just an incredible blessing.” Some noteworthy gymnasts he has coached are Alexander Pogorelov, Valentin Turbanov, Sergie Gusev, Uri Ermakov, and 2008 Olympian Kevin Tan.

ASSISTANT COACH KEVIN TAN Assistant Coach

Kevin

TAN Seventh Year at Penn State Penn State, 2004

Former six-time Penn State All-American Kevin Tan is entering his seventh season as a full-time assistant coach under Randy Jepson. After establishing himself as one of the top collegiate gymnasts during his Nittany Lion career, Tan achieved that lofty status on the international gymnastics stage in 2008. A lifetime of hard work and preparation culminated in the realization of a lifelong dream when Tan was named to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team following a first-place showing in the still rings at the Olympic Trials in Philadelphia. He was further honored when he was selected, by a vote of his teammates, to represent the team as its lone captain. With the world’s gaze focused on Beijing, China, Tan’s dream became sweeter when he helped the U.S. capture a bronze medal in the team finals of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Tan’s Olympic achievements were just the pinnacle of his competitive success in 2008. In May, Tan won his third straight rings title at the VISA Championships. A month prior, he won a silver medal in the still rings at the 32nd Turnier der Meister Cottbus, Germany, an event that featured a collection of the world’s elite competitors from 40 countries. His standout showing at the Turnier der Meister came on the heels of two impressive performances earlier in the year. In February, Tan captured his third consecutive and fourth overall rings championship at the Winter Cup Challenge. Later that month, he led a select group of gymnasts from the U.S. Men’s Senior National Team to a 361.350-352.600 dual meet victory over Canada in Calgary. With perhaps his best performance in his distinguished international career, Tan won the pommel horse, still rings, parallel bars .

After returning from Beijing and the Olympics, Tan’s star continued to rise when he signed on to perform with the 2008 Tour of Gymnastics Superstars. Along with a select group of the nation’s most celebrated gymnasts, Tan embarked on a three-month long, 37-city whirlwind tour of the United States, displaying his gymnastics skills in the live extraordinary sports and music extravaganza. Tan officially retired from competitive gymnastics in March 2011. “Kevin had an incredible run as a competitor and that has made him a better coach,” said Penn State head coach Randy Jepson. “He has seen things from both sides. Having a former world-class elite competitor in our gym every day is a tremendous benefit. He brings a lot of wisdom, competitive experience, and thought process into his coaching.” A member of Penn State’s 2004 NCAA championship team, Tan was the Nittany Lions’ first back-to-back NCAA champion on the still rings, earning titles in 2003 and 2004. He also earned All-American honors on the parallel bars (2002) and high bar (2003) during his standout college career. During his senior year in 2004, Tan was one of the premier collegiate gymnasts in the nation, becoming a finalist for the Nissen-Emery Award. He was an all-conference honoree, winning both the still rings and parallel bars crowns at the 2004 Big Ten Championships. His still rings title was his third-consecutive conference championship in the event.

PENN STATE HONORS T H E N I S S E N - E M E R Y A WA R D THE HIGHEST HONOR IN COLLEGIATE GYMNASTICS

The Nissen-Emery Award is the highest honor in collegiate gymnastics. Awarded in recognition of outstanding athletic achievement, academic excellence and sportsmanship, it is equivalent to college football’s Heisman Trophy. Presented annually to the top collegiate male senior gymnast in the U.S., the award was originally named the Nissen Award after George Nissen, a former NCAA Champion, for his contributions to the sport. In 1997, it was renamed the Nissen-Emery Award in honor of former Penn State gymnast Dr. Robert Emery for his support of the sport. Emery won the award in 1969. Penn State’s six recipients ranks first for the most in the award’s history. The first award was presented in 1966.
