The Fresno State men's basketball team held its annual awards banquet earlier this week at Pardini's.
Brad Floy is in his second season as an athletic trainer at Fresno State. He is responsible for the care and prevention of injuries as they relate to the Bulldog men's basketball program.
A native of Clear Lake, Iowa, Floy spent the previous seven years in the same position with the University of Iowa's men's basketball team while earning his Bachelor's of Science, Master's of Science, and working toward his doctorate, all in Exercise Science. He is currently completing his doctoral program.
He specializes in lower extremity injuries, bio mechanics and motor control of walking. During his time at the University of Iowa, he researched spinal cord injuries and stroke patients.
During Floy's tenure, the Iowa Hawkeyes achieved excellence at the highest level as regular postseason contenders. In 2006, the Hawkeyes won the Big Ten Tournament championship and earned a number-three seed in the NCAA Tournament. As a No. 10 seed, Iowa also made the NCAA Tournament in 2005 after going to three straight postseason NIT tournaments from 2002-2004.
The 29-year-old Floy is married to Erin Floy, who works as a physical therapist. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf and working out.
