It was an OAK reunion at this year’s NFL Combine in Indianapolis as Dr. Michael Corcoran and Dr. Carey Ellis met up with former OAK Orthopedic athletic trainer Scott DeGraff, ATC and OAK strength and conditioning specialist Micah Gerhart ATC, CSCS at Lucas Oil Field. As in years past Dr’s. Corcoran and Ellis provide medical evaluation of the Combine invitee’s which in large part determines how the athlete will project in the April NFL draft.
Athletic Trainer Scott DeGraff who is currently the assistant athletic trainer for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers previously worked at OAK and served Bradley Bourbonnais High School as their full time athletic trainer and Micah Gerhart also has athletic training duties with the Philadelphia Eagles and was a vital member of OAK Athletic Development in Bourbonnais. The OAK/NFL team would have been complete, but unfortunately athletic trainer Byron Cunningham of the St. Louis Rams and now LA Rams who served as the full-time trainer at Bishop McNamara High School when at OAK was unavailable.
Through the OAK Orthopedics Sports Medicine program, directed by Dr. Corcoran, these young men gained the valuable and needed experience to work in the pinnacle of their profession, the National Football League. We couldn’t be prouder!
