We are proud of all of our alumni but this is a very special accomplishment! Congratulations, Greg Banks!

Congratulations to CofC alumnus Greg Banks '94, Athletic Trainer for the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team, on the incredible World Cup victory yesterday! He is shown here holding the Copa Mundial after Sunday's match in Lyon, France. Mr. Banks has been involved in women's soccer at the highest levels for many years. While at the College, he took care of Cougar athletes as a student trainer and majored in physical education. Mr. Banks owns Competitive Edge Training in Mount Pleasant, SC. He and his wife, alumna Tara Roberts Banks '96, reside in Mount Pleasant.


Congratulations, Jake!

Jake Epperson ’19 has plans to attend the University of Tennessee to pursue his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. He ultimately would like to incorporate the athletic training and physical therapy fields in his career by conducting rehabilitation for the athletic patient populations.
The athletic training program provided him with evaluation and rehabilitation experience that he feels has prepared him well for graduate school. Jake is excited about the athletic training field because of how rapidly it has been growing. He feels the athletic training profession is becoming more involved and more recognized as an allied health profession. #StudentSpotlight 10/01/2018
