Austin Elementary fifth grade students Trace Holcomb and Anthony Gomez had the opportunity to FaceTime with Boston Red Sox athletic trainer Jon Jochim while finishing up their research unit on "sports injuries" in Jacqueline Rose's ELA class.
Both Holcomb and Gomez chatted with Jochim about the challenges and benefits of his position, and he gave them some great advice about success and failure.
Jochim has been with the Box Red Sox organization since 2003. Prior to the ballclub, he was the athletic trainer for the Harlem Globetrotters Basketball Team from 2000-03.
