My favorite part of being an ATC is that I get to be involved with an athlete from start to finish. We are there when the injury occurs, we see them progress through it and we witness their return to competition. Here at QMG, my favorite part is working with the area high school athletes and watching them grown over their high school careers as athletes and more importantly as people. We become part of the team and spend time with player, coaches and parents. Just like another family!

From the Coaches:
Brianne Guymon was the perfect athletic trainer for us at Brown County. Her ability to manage so many different personalities in the coaching staff and in our athletes was very special. She made a connection with everyone and she amazed me in how she was able to remember personal details about so many athletes to help make a connection with each person. Her instinct in dealing with each athlete was spot on. She was easily able to tell which player would see her for every little thing but she also could recognize that athlete that would try to play through everything. She was able to deal with both of these types of players to get them back into action quickly and safely.
From a head coach’s perspective, she became a vital part of our staff. She always had the players taken care of before games so we never had an issue of starting late or without everyone ready. During the games, she would take care of everything medical allowing our coaching staff to maintain focus on calling a game. With her knowledge of sports, she was able to help us get players back into games quickly when appropriate but also knew when it was best to not rush a player back into action when his impact would not be needed.
As a spectator for the other sports teams we have in Brown County I would watch Brianne’s professionalism during games and wish all trainers could take note. She was always focused on what was going on. She would take charge of every situation and work promptly to help the athlete return to play as quickly as possible if appropriate. She took a lot of pressure off the coaches and was exceptional in dealing with the parents. She would make sure that the parents and athlete were comfortable leaving the game and that everything was explained to them. She also would give them her number just in case they needed further explanation or if something had changed.
As a spokesman for the Brown County School District, I would personally like to thank Brianne and Quincy Medical Group for taking exceptionally care of our student/athletes in Brown County. – Tom Little, Head Football Coach – Brown County High School
Bri has been wonderful to Brown County athletics as a whole. She has gone out of her way many times to make sure our athletes let the care they need. Our coaching staff considers her a Hornet. We are all going to miss her tremendously!! – Dave Phelps, Athletic Director/Girls Basketball Coach – Brown County Hornets
