Scott Tucker Receives California Community College Athletic Trainer of the Year
Scott Tucker is currently in his 31st year as the Head Athletic Trainer for Cypress College (Cypress, CA). He came straight out of graduate school to assume this position from the infamous University of Utah, where he also taught Athletic Training Courses. Scott serves as the health care professional responsible for acute treatment, preventative medicine, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries for the 14 sports programs at Cypress College. In addition to his commitment to the Cypress student- athletes, Scott also serves as a Preceptor for Chapman University and California State University, Long Beach. During his time with Cypress College, he has received repeated nominations for Classified Employee of the Year, which exhibits not only his dedication to the student- athletes and patients, but to the entire Cypress community. He consistently works on improving the Athletic Training Department at Cypress College in order to meet the current demands. Presently, he is managing a significant equipment upgrade for the Cypress Athletic Training Facility. Scott also has demonstrated a passion for education. He has over 25 years as an adjunct instructor – teaching courses in First Aid, CPR, Athletic Training and activity classes. Scott feels that he was born to teach, therefore, student success is very important to him.
With all the athletic training responsibilities that Scott is busy performing, he still has time for other ventures that he loves being involved in. He is the entertainment director for Invisible Touch Events, and he has been a DJ for 23 years. Scott also serves his community by volunteering as football coach for two teams (5/6 graders, 7/8 graders), with the Friday Night Lights organization in Los Alamitos.
He lives in Westminster with his loving wife Jane and their new dog Baylor.
