In loving memory of an Outstanding Trainer, D.C., Mentor, Role Model and Friend.

Gary Tuthill was an athletic trainer for the Los Angeles Rams, USC football, NFL Pro Bowls, and the PGA tour. Gary was committed to supporting trainer excellence in our Orange County high schools be serving as a Board members to the Orange County Athletic Directors Association. He also established and ran for many years an athletic training clinic for all the county athletic programs.

Gary passed away in 1996. In his honor, OCADA established the “Gary Tuthill Memorial Athletic Trainer Award” recognizing county athletic trainers and to celebrate his noteworthy achievements, leadership qualities and championing our cause in education.

We miss Gary's Leadership and Medical Expertise, but most importantly we miss his Caring and Compassionate regard for the Student/Athletes of Orange County.
