High School Athlete Seeks Help to Walk On
Before Brooks Walton begins workouts, his trainer takes a knee. A slight ACL tear last season bears monitoring. Injuries can shatter dreams if they're not taken care of immediately. Brooks' dream is to walk-on at Auburn University this fall. And if he's going to take a leap from PA to the SEC, he's got to be of sound body.
Working out and listening to your body to stay injury-free.
"The mindset of the western world is let's treat it after it happens," Landers said. "And so it's really refreshing you have CHI St. Vincent Infirmary with the mindset, 'hey let's prevent it before it happens.'"
And that sentiment is right out of the Wear the Gown playbook. It's a philosophy that has also taken hold of this college freshman. Four tough workouts a week for Auburn and beyond.
"That way if I keep a work ethic going," Brooks said. "I'll be stronger. And I'll be workin' out and keep my body in a good position to be for the rest of my life really."
