Hi my name is Gregory Hawthorne, most people refer to me as
Greg. I am an Athletic Trainer
here at Florida State University and work primarily with the football
team. I am beginning a sports
medicine blog here on Seminoles.com.
Sports medicine is a very broad topic so the blog will cover topics
ranging from injuries and rehabilitation to general nutrition. If you have any questions you would
like to ask please leave a comment.
This blog however will not, I repeat will not discuss specific players or their injuries, sorry.
Here is a little about me I was born in the Greater
Pittsburgh Area in Pennsylvania, when to school in the a sweetest place on
earth, Hershey, PA. I then
went to undergrad at UM, not the orange and green, but the Maize and Blue, the
University of Michigan where I received my B.S. in Athletic Training. I went to Michigan State University for
graduate school where I received my Master's Degree in Kinesiology. At MSU I learned a great deal about
Osteopathic and Manuel Medicine. While attending school I worked with many of
the sports teams. I used the
knowledge I gained to work for several NFL teams, the Detroit Lions, the Rhein
Fire of the now defunct NFL-E, and the Jacksonville Jaguars. I have also worked as a performance
enhancement specialist and personal trainer.
I hope this blog will help you understand a little more
about sports medicine issues and general wellness leading you to make better
health decisions and increase your quality of life. So stay tuned for the first entry....
