Rams Hire New Head Athletic Trainer
ST. LOUIS, MO – The St. Louis Rams hired Reginald Scott as head athletic trainer, the team announced today.
“We are happy to add Reggie to our team,” said Rams Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo. “He comes highly recommended, very qualified and greatly respected by his peers and the players he has worked with. He is very excited to be a part of the Rams organization.”
Since 2003, Scott served as assistant athletic trainer for the Carolina Panthers, where he provided rehabilitation, treatments and preventative care for players. He also developed rehabilitation programs for injured players, and managed the day-to-day operations of the training room. Prior to working with the Panthers, Scott did a year-long internship with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“Reggie brings a young, fresh, and modern approach to the job,” said Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith. “He is forward thinking and as a player, he makes you feel comfortable with the treatment and rehabilitation you receive. He is a great person and is always on top of his game. He is going to be missed here in Carolina and the players are going to enjoy working with him in St. Louis.”
“Reggie was always diligent in his efforts trying to prevent injuries and rehabbing players, trying to get them back on the field,” said Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers. “Most importantly, I always knew if I needed Reggie, I could always count on him. He will be missed, but I am excited for his opportunity. The Rams’ players will benefit from his presence.”
Before entering the NFL, Scott worked as a student athletic trainer at West Virginia University for four years (1999-2002), working with student athletes involved in football, wrestling, baseball, men’s tennis and soccer. Scott was responsible for the prevention, evaluation, management, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, as well as serving as a liaison between team physicians, athletic training staff, coaches, players and player’s families.
Scott broke into athletic training as an intern with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2000.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in athletic training from West Virginia University and a master’s degree in performance enhancement and injury prevention from California University at Pennsylvania. In 2007, he added the Performance Enhancement Specialist Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
Scott is a member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, where he serves as an Ethnic Diversity mentor. He also serves on the Professional Enhancement and Advocacy Committee of the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society (PFATS). In 2004, he was a part of the staff that won the PFATS Athletic Training Staff of the Year award, and in 2003, he earned the U.S. Air Force Commanders Award for Excellence.
Scott, a native of Dover, Del., is married to wife Tina, and has one child, Sophia.
