Play Station: Florida's professional athletic trainers

| 12/28/2016

Jay Sabol says it’s a pre-game custom to greet the other team’s athletic trainer and wish each other a “boring game,” but injuries are inevitable in a high-speed, dynamic contact sport like basketball — and staying cool under fire is critical.

“Last year, they made fun of me, the guys on TNT, because I had a player who dislocated his finger and he was hollering and he’d never seen his finger sideways before. I just kind of walked over, nonchalantly. I put his finger back in place,” he recalls. “Everybody said I didn’t care, but that’s far from the truth because obviously I cared.” 

ALSO IN THIS ARTICLE: Tom Mulligan, Head Athletic Trainer, Tampa Bay Lightning; Keon Weise, Head Athletic Trainer, Orlando Magic; Ron Porterfield, Head Athletic Trainer, Tampa Bay Rays; plus fitness and nutrition tips.

  • I support it - good start
  • I oppose it - because it doesn't repeal Obamacare enough
  • I oppose it - because it would harm low-income, seniors and more
  • Unsure, need to study it more
