Congratulations to Dr. Kostas Economopoulos!

Congratulations to Dr. Kostas Economopoulos! He was asked by US Rugby to be the overseeing physician for their under 19 national team tryouts that took place from December 26th until Dec 31st.  The tryouts included 200 under 19 year old males attempting to make the US National Rugby team that competes all over the world.  Dr. Economopoulos and several other trainers and physical therapists were in charge of taking care of the bumps, bruises, breaks and concussions that go with rugby. Luckily, there were no major injuries during our week of tryouts.  He was asked to be the team doctor for the event because of his background of taking care of teams and young athletes in addition to His love for rugby. Dr. Economopoulos will have a chance to travel with the team to their international meets in the upcoming year.
