Combine Athlete JT Thomas Stopping By For An Adjustment
For football fans, attending the seminar is just the tip of the iceberg. Each morning you here the buzz going around the seminar about who saw who when they were out for dinner the previous night. The town is just full of football people. I could count at least 50 head coaches that I have just happened to run into over the four years that I have attended the seminar. My wife actually literally ran into then San Francisco 49ers Offensive Coordinator, Mike Martz, while he was being interviewed by Sirius radio. She was so caught up in the moment of getting to meet then Cowboys Head Coach, Wade Phillips, that she had to text message my father-in-law. With her eyes firmly fixed on her phone, she proceeded to walk obliviously into a circle of several reporters, cameras, microphones and one former Head Coach. You never know who you will run into, literally. Last year, the big story around the combine was Cam Newton. Was he cut out to be an NFL quarterback? It was widely thought before the combine that he would not be successful at the next level. Newton spent a large amount of time leading up to the combine working with quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. Coming out of the combine, Newton’s performance was good enough to convince the Carolina Panthers to use the first selection in the 2011 draft on him. Newton would then go on to break several rookie records in his first season. On the plane ride home from Indianapolis, Cam’s quarterback guru was sitting in the seat right behind me. These are only a few of the football memories that I have brought back from the Professional Football Chiropractic seminars over the past few years. As a chiropractor and a football fan, I look forward to attending the PFC seminar each year. I get to learn from the best, be a part of football history each year, and I get continuing education credits as a bonus.
