Jeff Allen, co-founder of Kinematic Sports, LLC and Director of Sports Medicine for The University of Alabama Athletics has been named the National Athletic Trainer’s Association Head Athletic Trainer of the Year.
Every year the Intercollegiate Council for Sports Medicine recognizes one individual for exceptional performance as a head athletic trainer in each of the following collegiate divisions: NCAA Division-I, NCAA D II, NCAA D III, NAIA, Junior College/Community College and Club/Intramural/Recreational Sports, per the NATA’s website.
Award recipients are actively involved in their community and/or campus, athletic training associations and promotion of the profession.
Allen is in his twelfth season with the Crimson Tide. In addition to his role as Director of Sports Medicine, he also serves as the Head Athletic Trainer for Alabama Football.
As the Head Football Athletic Trainer at Alabama, Allen was looking a way to make sideline medical care during games more private. From that idea and his work with two Alabama engineering students – Jared Cassity and Patrick Powell – SidelinER® the medical-evaluation tent was developed.
SidelinER® medical tents are produced by Kinematic Sports, LLC now. The company was started by Allen and the two former students. Their product has spread in college football and the NFL.
