Our final episode from the on-campus visit to Virginia Tech is with athletic trainer Sean Collins. A New York native with nearly zero wrestling experience before coming to Blacksburg, Collins talks about is journey to Virginia Tech and what it’s been like working with the wrestling program and falling in love with the sport.
Collins is one of the frontliners when it comes to making sure wrestlers are at their best heading into matches, practice and the postseason. He’s also first on the scene when it comes to injuries and prognosis of athletes’ bumps and bruises. Collins explains the role trust plays in individual athletes’ performances and their rehabilitation plans when they do get hurt.
