Congratulations to the University of Alabama’s Jeff Allen, who won Head Athletic Trainer of the Year. Now, in his 12th season with the Crimson Tide, Allen has enjoyed five National Football Championships with the team (2009, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2017).
Allen has had a stellar athletic training career. Earning a master’s degree in health and physical education from Valdosta State University in 1995, he has authored several published articles and is a regular speaker at national and state athletic training conferences. In addition, he has had work published by the Journal of Athletic Training and Athletic Therapy Today.
Prior to Alabama, he was the head athletic trainer at the University of Central Florida, where he was responsible for the sports medicine needs for the entire department. Allen was head athletic trainer at Chattanooga from 2000-04, overseeing the athletic training operations for 16 varsity sports. He was an assistant athletic trainer at Kentucky from 1997-2000 and earlier served as an assistant athletic trainer from 1995-97 at Valdosta State, where he was head athletic trainer for the football and baseball teams.
During his tenure at Alabama, Allen has trained, conditioned and rehabilitated athletes in a SwimEx hydrotherapy pool and plunge pools. Alabama has a SwimEx 600 T DW pool with a deep well and two plunge pools (hot and cold). This SwimEx pool is the deepest most powerful in the SwimEx hydrotherapy line. It is a superior performer for the highest level athlete with versatility and strength for ultimate, world class aquatic therapy.
