Did this a few weeks ago, surprised they posted that now.


Anyway, here's his bio:


Keon Weise enters his first season as the head athletic trainer for the Orlando Magic. Weise began his career with the Magic as an athletic training intern during the 2002-03 season.


In this role, Weise is responsible for all aspects of the medical care of the Magic players, including injury prevention and rehabilitation. Prior to being promoted to this position he served as the team’s performance enhancement specialist/assistant athletic trainer for seven seasons.


Before joining the Magic, Weise attended graduate school at Temple University, where he received a master’s degree in sports medicine/athletic training. While at Temple, he also worked as a graduate assistant athletic trainer for the university. As an undergraduate student at the University of Maryland, he earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, while working as a student athletic trainer. He worked primarily with the Terps football, men’s basketball, and men’s and women’s track teams.


Weise is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) and the Athletic Trainers’ Association of Florida (ATAF), along with being a performance enhancement specialist and corrective exercise specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). He has a proactive approach to training, having developed a comprehensive assessment protocol that the Magic’s sports medicine staff uses to create individualized injury prevention programs for each player.


A sought after speaker, Weise frequently lectures about injury prevention and management. He was a presenter at the Cutting Edge Concepts in Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Seminar in Orlando. During the 2009 offseason, he had the opportunity to travel to St. Vincent & the Grenadines to lead sports medicine training sessions for local physical education teachers and coaches. This past offseason, Weise served as an athletic trainer for the Jamaican Men’s National Basketball Team.


With a passion for mentoring youth, Weise is an active member in the league’s Read to Achieve Program, along with being actively involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida.


A native of Philadelphia, Pa., Weise is an avid fan of the Eagles and enjoys traveling to games. In his spare time, he enjoys riding motorcycles and playing golf. He and his wife, Mackenzie, reside in Orlando.




Nice guy.
