News – MTSU’s AT Robbie Stewart nominated for Courage Award!

29 Sep

Middle Tennessee State University’s athletic trainer Robbie Stewart and football player Shane Blissard  have been nominated for the 2011 Discover Orange Bowl FWAA Courage Award!

Stewart and his staff helped save Blissard from a life-threatening injury during spring practice, and Blissard returned to the field this season. Blissard suffered a ruptured spleen, bruised kidney, a broken rib and a pneumothorax.  Due to Stewart’s diligent monitoring of Blissard and quick recognition of the seriousness of the injury, Blissard has made a full recovery and is playing football again.

Congratulations Robbie on a job well done!
