Awarded to one individual each year for outstanding service as an athletic trainer
Add the Tim Kerin Award to the long list of recognition for Michigan State head athletic trainer Sally Nogle.
Nogle received the award, given to one individual each year for outstanding service as an athletic trainer, on Thursday in St. Louis at the National Athletic Trainers’ Association’s national convention. It has been awarded in the name of Kerin, the late, longtime University of Tennessee trainer, since 1994. Kerin died suddenly from an aortic aneurysm in 1992.
“This is quite a professional honor, especially since I knew Tim Kerin,” Nogle said in a statement. “As a young professional, I looked up to Tim because he had established himself as a leader in this field. He had quite an impact on this profession.”
Also Thursday, MSU associate head athletic trainer Dave Carrier was inducted into the NATA Hall of Fame. Carrier is entering his 32nd season as the athletic trainer of the MSU hockey team.
Nogle was inducted into the NATA Hall of Fame in 2012. She received the Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award in 2003 and the NATA Service Award in 1998.
Nogle also has received the Michigan Athletic Trainers’ Society Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award and the Michigan Athletic Trainers’ Society Hall of Fame Award. In 2006, she received the Jack Breslin Outstanding Staff Award for Michigan State University.
In 2008, Nogle was honored with the San Diego State University Robert J. Moore Distinguished Alumnus Award, and in 2012 she received the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers’ Association (GLATA) Outstanding Educator Award.
Nogle has been with MSU’s training staff since 1983 and was promoted MSU head athletic trainer and head football athletic trainer in 2013.
