John Grigsby wins Excellence in Athletic Training Award

The FWATA Public Relations Committee is pleased to announce the Fall 2018 Quarter winner of the Excellence in Athletic Training Award as John Grigsby, ATC. Each quarter, the Excellence in Athletic Training Award celebrates District 8 athletic trainers or athletic training student members who display an exceptional commitment to mentoring, professional development, or enhancing the quality of health care.

Grigsby is in his 13th year at Miramonte High School (MHS) in Orinda, California where he is the Sports Medicine Instructor as well as the athletic trainer. His goal is to ensure the safety of all MHS student-athletes and provide quality healthcare to the entire MHS community.

John McGonigle, the freshman football coach at MHS said, “John Grigsby is certainly an incredibly knowledgeable and capable athletic trainer. And he is very hardworking and generous with his time. But I think what really sets him apart is his extremely professional demeanor. He projects an understated but unmistakable calm and confidence in any situation that inspires calm and confidence in all around him. His mere presence has a dramatic calming effect on injured athletes (and their parents and coaches).”

Please join us in congratulating John on winning the Excellence in Athletic Training Award for District 8!
