Only 37% of high schools nationally have a full-time athletic trainer. Tom Herrmann, the director of the Athletic Training Program at the UC College of Allied Health Sciences, told WKRC-TV Local 12 that it should be the cost of doing business for high schools to have a full-time athletic trainer on staff.
“The NCAA says it’s necessary,” says Herrmann, who was the first graduate of UC’s Athletic Training Program when it was an internship in 1977. “The IOC says it’s necessary. FIFA says it’s necessary. The NFL says it’s necessary. The NBA says it’s necessary.”
