I was responsible for...
Aided the athletic training staff in day to day operation of the sports medicine equipment and facilities. Participated in pre-practice taping, bracing, and stretching for the athletes, as well as general and post-practice treatment/rehabilitation. Provided practice and competition coverage through first-aid and hydration.
I will never forget...
Being able to develop, learn, and practice clinical skills in the highest proffesional football environment is an experienced that can be unparalleled. My most memorable experiences occurred on the sidelines during the pre-season games, including joining the team on the road versus the New York Giants.
Advice for others...
Do not be afraid to go out of your comfort zone. Learning and proffesional development happens only if you push yourself beyond your comfort zone, even if you fail. Failure is sometimes the best way to achieve success.
