Encore Rehabilitation-Dothan is proud to give a shoutout to our very own Physical Therapist Bonnie Yesian on the completion of her 13th Boston Marathon Run! Way to go, Bonnie!

“I’ve been running since 1994 and started training for my first marathon in 2000. Since then I’ve completed 25 marathons along with numerous half marathons and shorter distance runs. I have now completed 13 Boston Marathons. Other races have included the New York Marathon; Chicago Marathon; California International Marathon (Sacramento); St. George Marathon; Houston Marathon; and Austin Marathon. I obviously like the sport but even more than that, I’ve loved all the extra benefits and unexpected life lessons running has taught me over the years. I’ve met the most amazing people and lifelong friends through running. I hope to continue as long as the good Lord allows me to run!” ~ Bonnie Yesian, PT

AHSAA Champions Challenge changed to AHSAA Kickoff Classic

Encore Sports Medicine

Two Games set for 14th annual Season-opening Event
AHSAA Champions Challenge is now the AHSAA Kickoff Classic
      MONTGOMERY – The AHSAA Champions Challenge Football Classic will have a new name, “The AHSAA Kickoff Classic,” when it kicks off the 2019 prep football season at Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl August 22-23, and it also has two exciting games set for 2019.

Montgomery rivals Jeff Davis and Carver-Montgomery will play on Thursday night, August 22, in the first game of the 14th annual football extravaganza. Defending Class 7A state football champion Central-Phenix City and perennial powerhouse Hoover will tangle in Friday’s game on August 23. Both games kick off at 7 p.m., and will be live-streamed over the NFHS Network.

”We are excited about new name of this important event and equally excited about the two games we have set,” said Alabama High School Athletic Directs & Coaches Association (AHSADCA) Director Jamie Lee. “The Champions Challenge has been the “official” start of the AHSAA football season for more the last 13 years. The new name for the event, the AHSAA Kickoff Classic, aptly describes the importance of these games.”

Lee said while the name has been changed from the Champions Challenge, the event will continue to be an ideal way to start prep football season.

“The Kickoff Classic will showcase one of the state’s top rivalries, Jeff Davis versus Carver-Montgomery, on Thursday,” he said. “And on Friday night, two of our premiere 7A programs will battle when Hoover and Central-Phenix City play.  The field will be full of future college talent both nights and will be a great way to kick off our season. We are thankful to all of these programs for committing to this year’s AHSAA Kickoff Classic, and we look forward to watching all of our teams in the AHSAA compete during the season.”

Central (14-0) and Hoover (9-4) will be meeting for the second time in the season-opening classic. The Bucs won 23-7 in the 2016 Classic on the way to a 12-2 season and its 11th state title later that season. The Bucs also won the state crown in 2017.

The Red Devils of Coach Jamey DuBose are coming off a 14-0 season, including a 52-7 win over 2018 Champions Challenge winner Thompson in the Class 7A Super 7 state championship game at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Thompson beat Hoover in the 7A semifinals in 2018.

Central is making its second appearance in the AHSAA Kickoff Classic. Hoover is 3-0 in three previous Classic appearances. DuBose (125-38) and Hoover Coach Josh Niblett (203-52) have squared off in the state finals three times when DuBose was head coach at Prattville. His Lions won in 2008 and 2011 and Niblett’s Bucs in 2009. The two faced each other again in the 2013 Class 6A quarterfinals with Hoover edging DuBose’s Florence squad 22-21. Central and Hoover have played twice (1978 and 1996) with the Bucs winning both times.

Carver (8-3) and Jeff Davis (3-7) are meeting for the 51st time in the Montgomery rivalry. Coach James Thompson (39-14), now in his second year as head coach, made great strides with Carver (8-3) in 2018. He came to the Wolverines from Pickens County where he compiled a 31-11 record and reached the 1A stat finals two year in a row. The Wolverines reached the Class 6A state playoffs last season with a rugged battle for the Region 2 title evolving between arch-rivals Carver, Sidney Lanier and Park Crossing.

Jeff Davis, coached by Lee Carter, started last season with four straight setbacks but went 3-3 the rest of the year. That momentum has the Vols excited about 2019. Carter is 26-37 at Jeff Davis in six seasons with three state playoff appearances.  Jeff Davis holds a 36-14 edge in its series with Carver, including winning three of the last four years. Thompson’s tenure with the Wolverines began last year with a season-opening 19-3 win over the Vols to snap a three-game DJ winning streak.

A total of 52 different schools have participated in the AHSAA’s season-opening classic since its inception in 2006 with teams from each of the eight districts and seven classifications taking part over the years. Carver is making its fourth appearance while Jeff Davis is making its AHSAA Kickoff Classic debut.

The games will be live-streamed by the NFHS Network and broadcast by the AHSAA Radio Network.

Happy National Athletic Training Month to Hannah Whigham, M.Ed., LAT, ATC!

Hannah has been an Athletic Trainer for seven years and with Encore Sports Medicine for almost two years. She provides Sports Medicine coverage throughout the Wiregrass area working primarily with Dale County, Ariton, and GW Long High Schools and South Dale Middle School. 

Hannah says, “The best thing about being an Athletic Trainer is seeing athletes succeed on and off the field. I became an Athletic Trainer because I knew I wanted to do something in the medical field and I’ve always loved sports. It was the best of both worlds!”

Thank you, Hannah, for always providing excellent care to our athletes! We are proud to have you on the Encore Sports Medicine Team!

Meet Leigh Scott, M.Ed, LAT, ATC

Encore Sports Medicine Athletic Trainer Leigh Scott. #EncoreRehab National Athletic Training Month gives us the opportunity to highlight our great team of Athletic Trainers. Say hello to Encore Sports Medicine Athletic Trainer Leigh Money!

“Why did I become an Athletic Trainer? I initially started the Athletic Training program at Troy University because I wanted to apply for a Physical Therapy program later. After a year in the program, I enjoyed working with collegiate athletes so much that I decided to get my master’s degree. This led to a graduate assistantship at Mississippi State University and a job working with the Bulldog Volleyball team. Those two years at State are some of my most enjoyable years as an Athletic Trainer. 

“I have always felt that the best part of being an Athletic Trainer is being able to work with the most dedicated group of people on Earth. To be able to assist someone who is willing to work harder than most is very satisfying. At the collegiate level, and even the high school level, I have found so much enjoyment the past 10 years in helping student athletes achieve their goals.” ~ Leigh Money, M.Ed., LAT, ATC.

We thank you, Leigh, for all you do for our athletes! Happy National Athletic Training Month!

Say hello to Matthew Rugger, LAT, ATC

Encore Sports Medicine Athletic Trainer Matthew Rugger #EncoreRehab

Encore Sports Medicine Athletic Trainer Matthew Rugger celebrates National Athletic Training Month with us by sharing how he became an Athletic Trainer.

“I decided to become an Athletic Trainer after my own experience with an injury. My second year in college, I tore my labrum in my shoulder while playing baseball. I was dedicated to doing my rehabilitation because I understood it would take rehab to get me back on the playing field, doing what I loved. I think it’s important to have that connection with your athletes, understanding how it feels to be injured and having compassion to get them back to playing again. The best part of being an Athletic Trainer is building relationships and mentoring high school athletes. I love seeing the priceless reaction of an injured athlete as they get to return to play after the rehabilitation process.” ~Matthew Rugger, LAT, ATC

We thank you, Matthew, for your compassion and dedication to our athletes! Happy National Athletic Training Month!
