Athletic Training Students Intern with Professional Teams

This summer, four athletic training students participated in summer internships with various professional organizations, including the National Football League (NFL), Arena Football League (AFL), and Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA).

In the NFL, Dani Klein interned with the Buffalo Bills, and Raymond Champagne interned with the Houston Texans. In the WNBA, Stephanie Garcia interned with the Los Angeles Sparks. In the AFL, Zac Benjamin interned with the Tulsa Talons. These students furthered their athletic training careers both educationally and clinically, with roles including pre-game and post-game set-up and break-down, hydration, treatments, observing, and facilitating rehabilitations, and observing evaluations performed by Certified Athletic Trainers and/or team physicians. Each student received a unique and valuable experience working with professional teams that will prepare him or her for future job settings and careers as Athletic Trainers.
