Spine Boarding Practice 

The PCHS football coaches learned about and practice their spine boarding skills on 08-10-2017 with some of the FirstLight Health athletic trainers. PCHS recently just purchased a spine board and the necessary accessories in case of an emergent situation. Hopefully the coaching staff will not have to put their skills to the test any time soon, but they are now prepared to use them if need be. Thanks to the coaching staff, Nick Schmitz, ATC, Dr. Thomas Mullin, and Nick Hansmann for taking time out of their busy schedules to practice these skills.
