Seth Fogler worked hard as a trainer in college, then worked hard as trainer over his career

The Miami Herald checked in with some student athletic trainers in October 1988, among them Barry University's Seth Fogler.

Fogler told The Herald their work almost always came away from the spotlight.

"We're working before games, after games, before, after and during practice," Fogler told The Herald. "At games and practices we're standing around observing in case anyone should get hurt. We watch for the injuries."

Fogler has gone on to watch for injuries in the decades since, from high school to the pros, across sports and even in Jai-Alai.

Fogler started at Barry University in Miami Shores. He interned at the University of Miami and earned his national certification in 1990. That same year, he served as trainer for the high-A Miami Miracle.

He soon also signed on as a trainer with Dania Jai-Alai by 1992. He continued there for his fourth year in 1995, The Herald wrote.

"I never realized how competitive the sport is," Fogler told The Herald in March 1995. "It's a very difficult sport. Physically, it can rip your body apart. The ball itself poses a very large danger for the players, going anywhere up to 150 miles per hour."

Fogler later served as trainer at American High School in Miami in 2000. He continues to be listed in 2022 as head athletic trainer at Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
