Assistant Athletic Trainer
Seattle Seahawks

David Stricklin has been a part of the Seattle Seahawks athletic training staff for 5 seasons now culminated with a Super Bowl victory 2014.  It was Stricklin’s experiences in high school taking classes and spending time with the athletic trainers there that he found his passion for the profession.  David’s education began at Central Washington University where he received his Bachelors of Science degree.  Followed by attending Oregon State University where he diligently worked to earn his Masters of Science degree.   Strickliin furthered his athletic training skills during stints as a Summer Intern with the San Francisco 49ers in 2002, as well as completing a full season in 2005 with the Seattle Seahawks.

Love what you do is one thing David feels is the most important for all perspective athletic trainers.  “This is a very demanding profession that keeps us from our families far too often for you to be bitter or angry when you have to show up for work”.  Stricklin feels your attitude every day sets 70% of the atmosphere in your training room, and when you don’t love it you have to step away.  Continue to strive to get better, don’t become stagnant in your practice.  Whatever decisions you make, make sure they are helping you and your players move forward is David’s last piece of advice to future athletic trainers.
