Jared has just graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in Athletic training, and as part of his education he has worked on the sidelines of many sports programs including college football, field hockey, soccer, women's hockey, and high school football to name a few. Jared is also a basketball referee at the high school level and he was a star three-sport athlete in high school, so he has tremendous sports knowledge.
We talked to Jared about the job an athletic trainer does on the sideline of a typical game, how AT advances have extended professional sports careers, and more details about progress in athletic training. He also analyzed four major injuries in the news with pro sports and what their recovery processes and timelines are likely to be. These examples are Kevin Durant's Achillies tendon rupture, Klay Thompson's ACL injury, Chris Sale's Tommy John surgery, and Cam Newton's Lisfranc foot injury. With his high school basketball referee experience, we also talked to Jared about some popular offensive and defensive moves we see in the NBA and how those plays are called if kids try them in high school. He also had some obscure basketball rules that most people, even advanced basketball fans, might not know. Thanks to Jared for coming on the podcast and we wish him the best going forward with his career in Athletic Training!
