Walrack - Boddy wouldn't change the defense to a 4-3 where they could utilize my natural playmaking abilities as a roaming free safety, woulda won states if he woulda listened.

As of now Iron Mountain will fall under the WITHOUT category. Thanks again for the information.

I read an article not so long ago that North Carolina was thinking about making it mandatory that every school caries an ATC. There was some sort of accident where a kid played with a concusion and actually died because he was hit while playing with it. He was diagnosed incorrectly earlier in the week by a first responder that was helping out the team.

The problem with the whole thing is they estimated it would cost each school over 50K a year to do so. Seems really high but I don't know the financial end of that.

My question is. Of the Certified ATC's that cover UP teams.... are they volunteer or do they get paid?

I admit I just skimmed the posting in "Who is taking care of YOUR injuries?" but where does it show the differences between a Certified ATC and a Physical Therapist?

Great point UPFOOTBALL!! There was just a piece on ESPN Outside the Lines on this very issue done this past week. ATC's are mandetory at every high school in many states---just not Michigan.....yet.
As for the financial piece, it is very very cheap to have an ATC cover games in the UP. I know that some schools contract out to local hospitals for the ATC coverage for very little money if at all.
We will get something posted on the difference between an ATC and a PT shortly. Thank you for your comments and interest!!
