Behind all the images of athletes running, jumping and celebrating wins, and the joy and elation the fans and spectators feel from watching their idols set records and compile victories, is a team of people who keep the world’s top professional athletes healthy. It’s this team that rehabs the stars you see on Sunday back from injury when skeptics say they’ll never return to the same form, and gives them the confidence to trust their body. You rarely see or hear of them, but they are an integral part of on-field performance, which propels our teams to victory. They are the NFL sports medicine staff.

The Pro Football Athletic Trainers Society has recognized the best athletic training staff in the NFL since 1985. In 2013, the Houston Texans staff of Director of Sports Medicine/Head Athletic Trainer, Geoff Kaplan, Coordinator of Rehabilitation/Assistant Athletic Trainer, Roland Ramirez, and Assistant Athletic Trainer, A.J. Van Valkenburgh, along with their interns, Travis Turner, Adrian Dixon and Andrew Crane, received this prestigious honor.

“My proudest moment as a sports medicine professional is after a player has suffered a significant injury and he’s been rehabbing for six, or seven, or eight months, and the day he steps back on the field, and he’s back to being the guy he was before the injury, putting all that doubt that he had in his mind that he’d never be the same football player again. That is a proud moment,” Kaplan said. “The fact that my staff has been recognized as the top athletic training staff in the NFL, and the award was voted on by our peers makes it even more special.”

edit: it does say "trainers" versus "doctors", so may have been earned.
