One recipient of a national athletic trainer award is right here in the Borderland.

Joe Mora, Gadsden High School’s head athletic trainer, won the 2019 Gatorade Secondary School Athletic Trainer Award. 

According to a news release, Mora is among 10 secondary school athletic trainers from across the nation recognized for providing “outstanding athlete care and have had a profound impact on their students, colleagues, and community.”

Officials say he has been the school’s athletic trainer for nearly 20 years. 

“Being an athletic trainer means to I get to wake up every day and do what I love,” Mora said. “It is very humbling to be nominated by my peers and to be recognized for the effort I put forth every day for my school and student-athletes.”

As part of the award, Mora will receive a $1,000 grant toward his school’s athletic program, a Gatorade sideline cart, and Gatorade products for his student-athletes.
