Nate Majnaric joined the GSU Strength and Conditioning staff in the summer of 2015.
An Ohio native, Majnaric graduated from West Virginia, where he was a member of the Mountaineers’ football team. He was an All-Big 12 Academic honoree and earned his bachelor’s degree in coaching education with an emphasis on exercise psychology.
He spent the 2014-15 year at Mississippi State as a graduate assistant, working with the men’s and women’s basketball teams. His strength and conditioning experience includes three years on the WVU staff under Mike Joseph.
A 6-foot, 230-pounder, Majnaric played football as a linebacker and running back at Green High School midway between Akron and Canton, Ohio. He also competed in track and field in the shot and discus. At Green HS, Majnaric was second in his graduating class in 2009 with a 4.22 GPA.
He went to WVU and tried to earn a spot as a walk-on player under coach Bill Stewart, but was cut several time before earning a spot as a sophomore, then finished under Dana Holgorsen, earning a scholarship as a senior. Injuries curtailed his career, but he preserved to return.
Born June 5, 1990, he is the son of Dan and Darla Majnaric, with a brother Kyle. He is an active member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Nate and his fiancé, Addie, are making marriage plans.
