    Default Steelers trainer leaving for Oregon State

    Steelers trainer leaving for Oregon State
    By Scott Brown, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
    Wednesday, June 1, 2011

    Ariko Iso, the only full-time female athletic trainer in the NFL, is leaving the Steelers for Oregon State.

    Iso, who spent nine seasons as an assistant athletic trainer for the Steelers, has taken the job as head athletic trainer at her alma mater. Iso interned with the Steelers during training camp in 2000 and 2001 before joining the team full-time in 2002.

    In 2008, she was part of a staff that was honored as the Professional Football Athletic Training Staff of the Year by the Professional Football Athletic Training Society.

    This has been great story since she joined the Steelers! She blew the door wide open for female trainers (not to mention minority female trainers)... Best wishes and good luck to her in her new position! Hopefully the person who takes her place keeps the guys healthy!
