Alan Edwards is in his 13th year as head athletic trainer for the Centenary athletic program. Edwards is a 1991 graduate of McNeese State University with a bachelor of science in health and physical education. He earned his master's degree in exercise science at Northeast Louisiana University in 1993. Edwards' services are provided through a partnership between Centenary College and Christus Schumpert Health System.

Dustin Bradstreet enters his fifth year as an athletic trainer at Centenary having moved to Shreveport from Wichita, Kansas. Bradstreet is a 2001 graduate of Fort Hays State University where he received a bachelor of science degree in physical education with a focus in athletic training. He continued his education at Fort Hays and graduated in 2003 with a masters degree in Health and Human Performance with emphases in exercise science and sports administration. He is certified with the National Athletic Trainer’s Association Board of Certification and has been in good standing since 2001.

Edwards and Bradstreet, along with Mike Peck, also supervise student and volunteer assistants as they gain valuable experience in their pursuit of becoming Certified Athletic Trainers. Student and volunteer assistants obtain practical experience at home and on the road, working with the Gents and Ladies athletic teams.

The Centenary College sports medicine facility is located on the bottom floor of the Gold Dome, where continued improvements have resulted in an enhanced facility.

The improvements include an upgraded computer system with injury tracking software, the addition of two stationary bicycles, and an increased storage capacity for the daily supplies used in treatments of student-athletes.

The training room is equipped with modalities to assist athletic trainers in the treatment of injuries of Centenary athletes. The room also contains training tables, an ice machine, and a whirlpool.
