Athletic Trainer Spotlight: Lindsay Hagler

Athletic trainers (ATs) are at the heart of The Center Foundation's sports medicine program. Working in concert with coaching staff, ATs help create a safe and supportive environment to keep Central Oregon’s student athletes healthy, safe, and active.

Meet Lindsay Hagler, AT-C

Lindsay has been an athletic trainer for over ten years, and spent eight of those years working with the student athletes at Mt. View High School. She graduated from George Fox University with a bachelor’s in Athletic Training and Fitness Management, providing her the opportunity to work closely with the Portland State University football team. She received her Masters in Sports Medicine from Western Michigan University, while working at a local high school as their first athletic trainer. Lindsay finds it most rewarding when she is able to help athletes from the moment they are injured on the field, through rehabilitation, and then finally seeing them compete again in the sport they love.

What’s one thing you would like people to know about athletic trainers?

We are highly trained allied health care professionals that do “a lot of behind the scenes work”, you may only see us on the sidelines of games, but we started preparing several hours earlier and we usually put in additional time after the game concludes, working to keep our athletes safe and healthy.
