"We are lucky to have Jeremy. He's a fixture who works very well with the players and coaches. We've definitely come to appreciate his extra efforts from detailed and timely injury reports to getting student-athletes the right treatment to recommending rest when needed," said Segel. "Our trainer is the best in the business!, and a true pro."

Jeremy is returning for a seventh season with the Knights. As the club's head athletic trainer, Jeremy is responsible for game training, medical coverage, treatment and coordinating additional care.

Ainsworth graduated from Oregon State with his Bachelor's degree in athletic training; he then earned his Master's in exercise and sports science at Oklahoma State.
