A true Friday night under the lights wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for athletic trainers. In fact, teams are not allowed to compete without a medical professional on the field. Over at Francis Parker High School, the Lancers have twice the help. Francis Parker High School offers an athletic training program to their students who want to be more involved.
Once football returns, everything will be different. From having no fans in the stands, to the way athletics trainers handle the athletes. These students explain what they do on game day and leading up to the big night under the lights. Francis Parker Athletic Trainer, Niki Dehner discusses the topic of more injuries these athletes can experience since they’ve had more off time than normal.
