TOP TRAINER: John Joslin, left, Director of Sports Medicine at Oral Roberts University, is set to be inducted into the Oklahoma Athletic Trainers’ Association (OATA) Hall of Fame at the group’s annual meeting in May.
Joslin has spent the last 12 years with the Golden Eagles supervising athletic training and sports medicine efforts for each of ORU’s 16 intercollegiate teams. He came to ORU after spending the previous three years as Head Athletic Trainer for the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Developmental League.
A 1988 graduate of the University of Tulsa, Joslin worked at EOOC for 23 years and assisted athletic training students during clinical rotations. He served as the OATA chairman from 1997-2005 and remains a member of the National Athletic Trainers Association and Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision.
He is joined by Roger Ploeger and Dr. Brock Schnebel in the Class of 2020 and the 30 previous recipients dating back to 1997.
Joslin is the second member of the ORU community to earn the distinguished honor as Glenn “Smitty” Smith was inducted in the OATA Hall of Fame in 2013.
The highest honor a member of the OATA can receive is induction into the OATA Hall of Fame and be recognized for their contributions to the profession of Athletic Training. Candidates are reviewed and then voted on by the Hall of Fame Committee. The candidates who receive a majority vote are then submitted for final approval by the OATA Executive Committee.
