Houston Dynamo Head AT Chris Rumsey
Christopher Rumsey joined the Houston Dynamo sports medicine team in July 2016, coming from Oregon State University where he primarily covered men’s soccer.
He received his bachelor’s degree in athletic training from Capital University in Columbus, OH and his master’s degree in science in sports medicine from Oregon State University.
Chris has experience at all levels of soccer as an athletic trainer and was a four year letterwinner on the soccer team in college.
Why is Rumsey involved in PSATS?
Professional Duty to improve
What Keeps You coming to work?
I work outside with sports. If working 9-5 inside daily is your happy place then more power to you. But for Chris it is torture.
Being from the Pacific Northwest Chris loves to be outside.
What is the hardest part of being an MLS AT?
Longest professional sports season
Favorite way to take a break?
Chris Rumsey is an outdoor guy. Really anything outdoros will do, but to really get away he heads back home.
He still needs to explore some more of Europe too.
If dehydrating your self while on vacation is part of your routine then plan ahead and take some HOIST with you to re-hydrate and rapidly recover.
