He is responsible for physical conditioning of OSU athletes in 16 sports but devotes most of his time to football and basketball.

Everyone involved in amateur and professional athletics knows that athletes must have constant physical care to remain active. In fact, many high schools are adding trainers to their athletic staffs."
