HOUSTON - University of Houston head athletics trainer Mike O'Shea recently received the Most Distinguished Trainers Award from the Southwest Athletic Trainer Association.

O'Shea, who is entering his 18th season at Houston in 2010-11, picked up the honor Friday during the 56th Southwest Athletic Trainers Association Annual Meeting and Clinical Symposium in Arlington, Texas. However, this was only the latest honor for O'Shea during his outstanding career.

In 2008, he received the University of Houston's Bill Yeoman Special Contributions Award. He earned the Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award from the National Athletic Trainers Association in 2005.

In 1999, he was awarded the Professional Football Athletic Trainer Society's Distinguished Alumni Award and was honored with the College and University Athletic Trainer of the Year Award by the Southwest Athletic Trainers Association in 2007.

Before coming to Houston in 1993, O'Shea served as the head football athletic trainer at the University of Louisville from 1985-93. He was named the NATA Trainer of the Year in 1987.

Prior to his tenure at Louisville, O'Shea worked at Miami (Fla.) from 1979-85 and was a part of the Hurricanes' 1983 national championship team.

O'Shea, a native of Brenham, Texas, began his career in 1963 as a student assistant athletic trainer at Blinn College. He moved on to the University of Texas and later Kent State University. He received his bachelor's degree from Texas in 1968 and his master's degree from Kent State in 1974.
