Packers Head Athletic Trainer Pepper Burruss is known to many Packers fans as the man that works miracles getting players back on the field in record time. Working with some of the best and most highly paid athletes in the world, Burruss has a stressful job loaded with expectations.
The presentation of the annual Fain-Cain Memorial, recognition of the league’s outstanding trainer of the year, came during the NFL combine. Burruss was announced the winner. After 20 seasons with the Packers, many in the organization and around the league felt this was an award way overdue.
Burruss is a member of the Wisconsin Athletic Trainers Association Hall of Fame and was selected in 2010 by the NFL to represent PFATS on the league's head, neck and spine committee.
