The Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) named Josh Martin, SPSU interim head athletic trainer, the 2012 Athletic Trainer of the Year at their recent annual meeting.
The award – voted on by each institution in the SSAC – was presented at the SSAC’s annual spring meeting.
Martin received his degree in athletic training at State University of New York College at Cortland and recently completed his Master of Sports Science and Pedagogy degree from Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C. There, he served as an approved clinical instructor for their athletic training education program.
Martin has enjoyed his first year as a certified athletic trainer for Hornets' athletics and looks forward to watching the program grow over the coming years. “Being able to become a part of SPSU and its award winning athletics has been a privilege,” he said.
