Spotlight on Doug Woods

Doug "Doc" Woods

Doug "Doc" Woods became the Head Athletic Trainer for Grand Valley State University in 1976 and held the position for the next 22 years. During this time, Doc established what is now one of the most successful Athletic Training Programs in the country. Woods was inducted into the MATS Hall of Fame in 2008 for his dedication and passion for the field of Athletic Training. After stepping down as the Head Athletic Trainer, Doc continued teaching for the Movement Science Department as well as started coaching the Lakers Softball team in 1991. He retired from coaching in 2014 after 24 years and 888 wins. After 40 years of service to both GVSU and the Athletic Training Program, Doug Woods will be retiring from teaching in April 2016.
