Brennan Gipson of McPherson was chosen as the Advanced Physical Therapy Athlete of the Month for March. Gipson went to APT due to a loose kneecap that kept slipping in and out of place due to countless hours on the tennis court.
“The most beneficial part of therapy for me was definitely the quad and knee strengthen-ing exercises they had me do,” Gipson said. “Lots of squats and lunges of various difficul-ties were involved.”
Gipson said it was such a gratifying feeling every time he left APT knowing the work they put him through was going to be beneficial in the long run.
“I absolutely love the staff at Advanced,” Gipson said. “My main physical therapist was Mallory, but Amanda and Heather also worked with me sometimes. They were all so nice and encouraging whenever I felt like I couldn’t do something.”
Aside from tennis, Gipson is also the manager for the volleyball and men’s basketball pro-gram. He is involved in Scholar’s Bowl, Kay Club and International Club.
After graduation, Gipson plans to attend Oklahoma State and major in Aerospace Admin-istration with the hope of working operations for a major global airline.
While he will not play tennis in college, Gipson will still play it in intramurals.
