    “It all comes down to safety of children. Safety for children on and off the playing field is my main priority. As a parent of high school athletes, I have personally been on the receiving end of The Center Foundation athletic trainers. And, I’ve seen the service that they provide to our local schools. When a player ‘drops to the ground,’ knowing that trained support is on the field makes a huge difference to parents.“
