Meet Southold's New Athletic Trainer
Mr. Averette graduated from Southold High School in 2010 and then earned his Bachelor's of Science degree in Athletic Training from SUNY Cortland in May 2015. Mr. Averette worked as an intern for the NY Jets as an athletic trainer during preseason camp and has many clinical experiences working with high school and collegiate sports teams including baseball, wrestling, and football. He also worked as a medical volunteer at the Empire State games and completed a rotation in a casting room at Upstate Orthopedics in Syracuse, NY. He is very excited and grateful for this opportunity to work for the community that he grew up in and hopes that he can improve the health and performance of all of Southold’s athletic teams.
I find this to be a very good and informative video about concussions. I encourage athletes, parents, and coaches to watch. It is about five minutes long and will teach you about what a concussion is and what to do when one is suspected.
