Nate Huston, who has worked at The College of Wooster for eight years, first as an assistant athletic trainer, and most recently as associate head athletic trainer, will assume the duties of head athletic trainer upon the retirement of Tom Love.
"I am very excited that Nate will serve as our next head athletic trainer," said athletic director Keith Beckett. "While there are big shoes to fill with Tom's retirement, Nate has all of the necessary skills and experience to provide a seamless transition and continue to advance injury prevention and athletic training care to our student-athletes."
"I'm excited about the opportunity and am looking forward to continuing the tradition that Tom created here of exceptional athletic training services," said Huston.
During his time at Wooster, Huston's primarily worked with the football, men's lacrosse, and swimming & diving teams, while also providing coverage and treatment to student-athletes from the College's other 19 sports as well.
Huston came to Wooster from Syracuse University, where he worked as a graduate assistant athletic trainer with the Orange's football and nationally-prominent men's lacrosse teams. Prior to that, Huston was a student athletic trainer at the University of Mount Union, where he worked with the Purple Raiders' 2008 national championship team.
