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!
