When asked “Why you coach”, Coach Carson responded “Every moment of athletic training is different, two identical injuries can present in completely different ways. The challenges of staying on top of the collection of the latest sports health information and decimating between fact and fiction keeps me engaged. Building relationships with athletes as they encounter the parts of participation which are not pleasant keeps me humble and appreciative of the wonders of the human mind and body.”
