Our certified athletic trainer, Lewis Flanary, provides comprehensive athletic health care program for all student athletes in collaboration with local orthopedic doctors and surgeons. Primary responsibilities include prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
Coach Flanary is in his 7th year of practicing as a certified athletic trainer. His interest in becoming an athletic trainer was ignited by a high school internship with the athletic training staff and football team at the College of William and Mary during his senior year at Lafayette High School (’07). He continued to pursue a career in athletic training by completing his undergraduate coursework and receiving a B.S. in Athletic Training from James Madison University (’11). Over the next two years, he worked as a certified athletic trainer for several collegiate teams including football, track & field, and womens soccer while taking classes going towards a M.S. in Clinical Exercise Physiology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (’13). After his two years in Tennessee, Coach Flanary returned to the peninsula where he has spent the past four years as an athletic trainer and teacher for Newport News Public Schools. In addition to working at Lafayette, Coach Flanary provides his services to several local soccer clubs, such as Virginia Legacy and Richmond Strikers, offering medical coverage at many athletic events in the Williamsburg community and in the surrounding Hampton Roads area.
