Clarksville, Ark. – Dallas Brose was named the Assistant Athletic Trainer at the University of the Ozarks, it was announced by Athletic Director Jimmy Clark Friday (August 10).
Brose served as a Graduate Assistant of Sports Medicine at Fresno Pacific University (FPU) while completing his master's degree in Athletic Training the past two years. Prior to FPU, he worked as the Assistant Athletic Trainer at Cowley College in Arkansas City, Kansas, for three years. Brose additionally covered Central Valley Christian High School football in Visalia, Calif., for one year.
"I am very excited Dallas is joining the athletic training staff," said Head Athletic Trainer Chad Floyd. "Dallas came highly recommended from his previous colleagues and supervisors. He has a strong work ethic and was well thought of at his previous institutions. This is a very demanding job and I know that he has the ability to handle the daily responsibilities."
A native of Tulsa, Okla., Brose received his bachelor's degree in Athletic Training from George Fox University in 2013.
"I am eager to begin working at University of the Ozarks," said Brose. "I realized during the interview process that the character of the people here is very high. This is an athletic department where the egos are minimized. I know its cliché, but the campus has a family-like atmosphere. It is an environment that I feel like I can fit into on a personal and professional level. And, my undergrad was at an NCAA Division III institution, so I have familiarity and appreciation of the philosophy and emphasis on the student aspect."
Brose joins Floyd and Assistant Athletic Trainer Denise Prather to complete a staff that serves 20 intercollegiate athletic programs, encompassing more than 320 NCAA Division III student-athletes.
"Chad has a ton of experience in athletic training," he said. "So I see it as an opportunity to continue to grow. He is well respected as an athletic trainer and as a person. I really like being in an athletic environment. I like building relationships with people that I'm around. So that's something I am looking forward to."
