PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (3TV/CBS 5) — Since the on-field collapse of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin during a live broadcast of Monday night’s game, many are learning the importance of learning CPR. This has also highlighted the role of athletic trainers on sports teams and, perhaps more significantly, the profession’s role in high school sports.
