BYU’S KNIGHTS INDUCTED INTO HALL OF
Clancy Medal recipient David O. Draper, '84, wasn't the only BYU professor in the spotlight at the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) meeting in June. Also honored was physical education professor Kenneth L. Knight—the inaugural recipient of the Clancy Medal in 1997—whom NATA named to its hall of fame.
While Draper's research focuses on the uses of heat in healing, Knight has spent much of his career exploring cryotherapy—the therapeutic use of cold—to treat both the immediate and long-term effects of injuries. The two professors plan to present their divergent approaches together in an upcoming book on therapeutic modalities.
Knight, who calls his induction a "significant achievement," was nominated for the honor by former students who now work at the Lake Placid Olympic Training Center. He joins fellow professor Earlene Durrant, '62, a 2000 inductee to the association's hall of fame.
