Tim had this to say about the accolade:
“It’s nice to have my work acknowledged but it’s not why I do what I do. For me, research is an important piece of the puzzle to know I can offer the best information to the teams, players and coaches I work with. My real enjoyment comes from seeing my athletes and coaches succeed.”
