Neil Thompson - athletic trainer

As a school district, we would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for our athletic trainer, Neil Thompson.  Neil drives in from Bowling Green daily to work with our student-athletes.  In a career field that is sought after and positions are available for your picking, Neil chose Fostoria, and we are very grateful for his decision.  

Neil's expertise in sports medicine and injury prevention has been a game-changer for our school's athletes. From taping sprained ankles to providing rehabilitation exercises, Neil has been a reliable presence, ensuring that students are in their best physical condition to compete.  

 Here are just a few reasons why he deserves this heartfelt appreciation:

  1. Expertise: His knowledge of sports medicine and injury prevention is second to none.  He has been our go-to for all things related to our athletes’ health, providing guidance that’s not just about quick fixes but long-term well-being.

  2. Compassion: Beyond his professional expertise, Neil’s genuine care for our students’ physical and emotional health is evident.

  3. Endless Patience: Dealing with a bunch of junior/senior high school athletes isn’t always easy.  Neil has handled it with patience and grace.  He is always willing to answer questions and see students at times that are most convenient for them.

  4. Positive Role Model: In a world with many negative influences, Neil has been a great example of dedication, positivity, and professionalism.  

Thank you, Neil, for being the unsung hero of our sports teams, for mending our students’ bodies and lifting their spirits.
