Every school has one and they’re most needed- athletic trainers are the foundation of sports. The duties of an athletic trainer are to make sure the athletes are hydrated and ready to perform even that means wrapping up a leg.

“I help keep the team together by simply doing my job and helping the players stay on the field,” junior athletic trainer Brandon “Spot” Mayers said. 

If the trainers for that sport weren’t there, the athletes would have to take time to hydrate themselves which then takes time from the game. Athletic trainers reduce the time it takes when providing for the needs of athletes.

“Time is the hardest part for being an athletic trainer because we set up before practice and clean up late after the players leave,”  Brandon said.

From time to time being an athletic trainer can be stressful, but Brandon enjoys the worth from what he gets out of it. When Brandon signed up to become an athletic trainer he also acquired some perks such as getting to be up close during the games and being a key part in sports. In doing so he received the ‘I Believe’ award on Oct. 23.

“Brandon is a hard worker who demonstrates, daily, his desire to become an athletic trainer when he completes his education.  He carries a passion for all things relating to sports medicine and to the care and prevention of athletic injuries,” athletic trainer Red Ganus said.

After high school, Brandon plans to attend college to pursue his dream and study to become an athletic trainer.
