Bob Ogar, the 'Godfather of athletic trainers'
The Michigan Catholic
Bob Ogar has enjoyed the summer, using it, he says, to "re-energize" himself for the upcoming high school football season that officially kicked off Aug. 11. Right from the start of his 14th year as the athletic trainer at Detroit Catholic Central, Ogar will need all of that pent-up energy, and more, between now and Thanksgiving weekend (when the Shamrocks are usually playing for the state title, as they have in four of the past five years) to tend to the myriad of duties his job entails.

Red wine may not be so good for oral health
Dentistry Today
Red wine may be good for overall health but not oral health. The acidity of red wine leaves a mark on your teeth that takes its toll over time.
