SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Affton High School
By: Eldon Reid (MAT Class of 2015) and Haylie Dehm (MAT Class of 2016)
This semester has been a whirlwind of excitement! When we first came into the Athletic Training Room at Affton High School, you could tell that this was going to be an amazing experience. All the coaches were friendly and welcoming and the student athletes had a spunk of their own. We have had the chance to work with football, girls’ volleyball, boys’ soccer, co-ed cross country, boys’ swimming/diving, and the spirit teams. We have never seen a school so full of team spirit, or in this case, Purple Pride. It has been an interesting ride, this semester, as we have been relatively calm down in our cozy little Athletic Training Room. Besides the standard muscle strains and joint sprains that accompany being an athlete we have had experienced two broken fibulas and a fractured humerus.
