Andrew Baker Named Head Athletic Trainer

University of Wisconsin-River Falls has a new Head Man

Andrew Baker has been named head athletic trainer and health and human performance lecturer according to UW-River Falls Athletic Director Roger Ternes.

Baker will be replacing long-time head athletic trainer Gary “Stump” Eloranta who is retiring this August after 40+ years of service to the university.

“I’ve got some big shoes to fill in succeeding Wisconsin athletic training legend Stump,” said Baker “but I am ready for that challenge and can’t wait to get to River Falls and start working.”

“I’m excited to get to River Falls and hit the ground running,” says Baker. “It’s an exciting time at UWRF and I hope to be able to contribute to the goals and mission of the athletic department and the health and human performance department.”

Baker comes to River Falls after working the last four years (2011-2015) as an athletic trainer within the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, MI.  A majority of his time was spent with the USA Hockey National Team development program.  He also worked with the post-operative team at MedSport Orthopedics.
