Antreon Bennett (’20) grew up playing sports. After being sidelined by a knee injury in high school, he experienced the physical and mental toll that such a setback can have. Going to rehab and working with a caring athletic trainer at his school not only helped him get back in the game, but it inspired him to help others in the same way.

Today, as a certified athletic trainer for North Oaks Health System, Antreon is directly helping high school student athletes tackle and overcome obstacles to come back stronger than ever.
