History
The ATAF Hall of Fame Legacy Scholarship was initiated shortly after the

untimely death of Steve Glickman, LAT, ATC, PT, LMT in July of 2011. Steve

was, and continues to be, the epitome of the athletic training profession.

His professional and personal life personified the unselfish caring and service

to everyone who could benefit from the education, training, experience and

care that he so nobly provided. This scholarship was given the name Legacy

to honor ATAF’s Hall of Fame members and to encourage the future generations of athletic trainers who will continue the legacy of so many selfless, dedicated and caring individuals who paved the way for the noble profession they will serve.  

The need to support the academic development of future athletic trainers is an enormous task. College costs are forever increasing and scholarship assistance is unable to keep up with the need. The ATAF Hall of Fame members have taken it upon themselves to develop, grow and nurture this much needed program, but cannot meet the goal alone.  Please consider donating to this endeavor.
