#LIONSTRONG: Switching Gears Leads to Helping Lions
The LMU Sports Network takes a look at why LMU is #LIONSTRONG, featuring Steve Cortez.
LOS ANGELES - - The LMU Sports Network takes a look at why LMU is #LIONSTRONG. What started a path in chemical engineering turned into a career in sports medicine for assistant athletic trainer Steven Cortez. Entering his ninth season with the Lions, Cortez loves helping out the student-athletes of LMU.
Cortez joined the LMU Athletic Training staff in January of 2008 and works primarily with the baseball, men's crew and women's volleyball programs.
Prior to joining LMU, Cortez worked as the Head Athletic Trainer and teacher at St. Paul High School in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. beginning in August of 2006. Cortez, who has spent stints working as an Athletic Trainer for FedEx and as a personal trainer at 24 Hour Fitness, got his start in athletic training as a student athletic trainer at Cal State Fullerton in August of 2001. After finishing college, Cortez took an internship with the Anaheim Angels Baseball Club in July of 2003, which led to a job as an athletic trainer for the Angels in Mesa, Ariz. during the 2004 season.
Support LMU's 22 intercollegiate teams and it's student-athletes through scholarships and team support by joining the Lions Athletics Fund. Your help will make LMU #LIONSTRONG.
