Trac grew up in Panguitch Utah where he played basketball, baseball, and ran track and cross country through high school. He then attended Utah Valley University, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. While at UVU, he competed in track and cross country and, in 2015, was an honorable mention All-American in the 3000 meter steeple chase. Before attending graduate school, he also worked with the Nike Oregon Project helping pace athletes who were preparing for the 2016 Olympics. Trac received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Duke University in 2019. While at Duke, he participated in pre-season functional exam testing and concussion testing. Trac is a certified strength and conditioning specialist and he worked per diem for the Duke Sports Performance team, where he helped athletes of all ages to achieve their individual sport-related goals. Trac also had the opportunity to work with the Duke football team and athletes in various sports at Radford University in Virginia. He received the Helen Kaiser Scholarship from Duke University for his commitment and dedication to education, community service, and patient care. His special interests include injury prevention, running analysis, return to sport testing, and lower-extremity injuries. Outside of work he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, running, playing sports, and being outdoors.
