The Lew Williams Award

The Stephen Bushee Award

The Lewis "Lew" Williams Award exists to honor Lew Williams, Colgate University's first officially designated athletic trainer for his dedication to Sports Medicine from 1949 to 1972. It is presented to the student athletic trainer who shows excellence in performance in the training room and the classroom. Stephen Bushee is a 1981 graduate of Colgate University who worked for four years as a student athletic trainer with the Sports Medicine Program.  His love for Athletic Training was immediately evident as he worked enthusiastically in all aspects of the program.  Whether it was football, wrestling, field hockey, women's lacrosse, or clinic duty, Steve put 110% effort into the care of the student-athletes who were his charge.

He is the student athletic trainer by whom all other athletic trainers are measured.  His love for the profession of Athletic Training and the unfailing desire to take care of the student-athlete are traits that inspire all athletic trainers.  Steve is currently the Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Medicine at Boston College.  The award is given to the senior student assistant who demonstrates exceptional dedication and abilities over the course of their entire college career.
