The head athletic trainer at Stephen F. Austin State University has won the division one head athletic trainer of the year award.
Jeff smith was nominated by his peers for this award, it was then judged by the national athletic trainers association.
SFA has won three national awards in sports medicine this year and jeff smith is honored to be a recipient of one of them.
“It feels good,” said Jeff Smith, SFA Head Athletic Trainer. “I’m a firm believer that it is as much a staff award as it is a personal award. We’ve got a great staff here at sfa in our sports medicine athletic training department. We all work hard, long hours, and spend a lot of time here working with our student athletes. So it’s great to be recognized for some of the service we do to our student athletes.”
It is always good to know you have an excellent training staff for your athletes even if you hope an injury will never happen.
