The University of Washington Strength and Conditioning coach Tim Socha is the first candidate for our search.  Socha is a long term coach for the Washington Huskies and has been instrumental in aiding the team to develop less recruited talent into NFL caliber players. He was instrumental in the Washington Huskies’ ability to develop so many NFL caliber talent, such as the LA Rams very own Taylor Rapp, Greg Gaines, and even Coleman Shelton.

Socha helps young men transition from high school players into NFL ready prospects.  One example is that of defensive lineman Elijah Qualls, who arrived at the Huskies as just a 265-pound hopeful freshman but emerged as a 321 pound NFL defensive lineman. During his time with Washington, 24 Huskies have been selected in the NFL Draft.

Socha’s efforts have been recognized by his peers, as he was named the FootballScoop.com National Strength Coach of the Year in 2016.  He has been with the University of Washington for seven seasons, all years in the same role.

Prior to his time at the University of Washington, Socha was the Strength and Conditioning Coach for Boise State University for eight years. Socha brings stability to the role, as well as the ability to work with players to personalize their fitness regiment to ensure they remain healthy and at the top of their play throughout their NFL careers.
