Degrees and Certifications:
Phillip Fain, a native of Jacksonville, Florida resided in Charleston, South Carolina and attending Academic Magnet High School until turning 17, then returned and graduated from Sandalwood High School. He became interested in athletic training because he never had one in either of his high schools. During his junior year in high school he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and never had the proper guidance. His school did not have access to an athletic trainer, and living in a low income household did not have accessible physical therapy and care. During the early high school football he played right guard and defensive tackle and receiving several scholarship offers but due to the ACL injury, football was off the table. Possessing a great desire to provide quality health care that he never received he decided to become an athletic trainer. In 10 ten years he plans to be fully active in the community as an athletic trainer and hopes to open his own facility where athletes can come and receive care at little or no cost.
