Redskins Name Larry Hess Head Athletic Trainer

Posted by Matt Terl on February 16, 2010 – 2:53 pm

The Redskins today named Larry Hess as Head Athletic Trainer. Hess was most recently the Director of Rehabilitation for the Redskins, after starting his career here as an Assistant Athletic Trainer. Gary Fitzgerald has the whole story over at Redskins.com; here are a few other Hess-related notes.

  • I conducted a long interview with Hess and physical therapist/assistant athletic trainer Elliott Jermyn (who has continued in those roles) waaaayyyy back in November of 2008, in which both guys were very open in discussing the workings of the training room.
  • Hess also earned a few minutes of fame by being the guy who got the phone call from Jason Taylor at 3:00 in the morning when Taylor suffered a near-career-ending calf injury during the 2008 season. “When people get hit in the shin,” Hess explained to me later, “I warn all the players, ‘Hey, if you have any problems tonight, if your foot gets sore, you can’t feel it, you get numbness or tingling, you get excruciating pain … call me.’ I’ve said that to a hundred players and haven’t had one phone call until this one.”
  • He’s also helpfully offered ten tips for YOUR rehab as well, over on Redskins.com. Being neurotic and somewhat whiny, I’m partial to number 1: “Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Communication between a person coming off an injury and his or her physical therapist is vital.” But they’re all actually useful tips.
  • He was a keynote speaker at the Fourth Annual Injuries In Football Conference back in April of last year; after the parade of injuries to Redskins players this season, I can only assume that he’ll be invited back for the 2010 edition.
  • Oh, and Colt Brennan once amused himself by filming a video of Hess and the other trainers doing the P90X workout, which Brennan misidentified as Jazzercise. Video after the jump. (UPDATE: There is some dispute as to if that’s actually Hess in the video, but whatever. It’s worth re-watching anyhow.)

    Mr. Hess,
    Being an Athletic Trainer I wanted to ask if I could bring 2 young men to your Athletic Training Room to observe for a morning (or afternoon). Or, if there would be privacy violations having us inside the Training Room, could I bring them to a practice? We currently live in Richmond.
    Hope to hear from you via the email required above. Thank you very much!
