    Texas A&M's Billy Pickard Leaves Behind a Mountain of Memories
    Bryan Eagle
    Family and friends, many of them a Who's Who from Texas A&M, paid their respects Friday to Billy Pickard, described several times at the memorial as "the ultimate company man." For more than five decades Pickard bled maroon while molding athletic trainers, managers, players, coaches, athletic directors, and even the media, into being better at what they do — but also better people. He exemplified the Aggie Spirit, but as son Kevin said, his father was all about relationships.

    Making Genes a Better Fit
    Times of Northwest Indiana
    This year's theme for National Athletic Training month is "We prepare — you perform." One form of preparation for athletic trainers involves being ready for any possible injury. Another, however, is to prepare injured athletes to return to play and to assist coaches with the preparation of healthy athletes in ways that make injury less likely. Wouldn't it be nice, though, if the athletic trainer had some type of crystal ball to predict which athlete was more likely to suffer which injury?
