Cody Fletcher
Athletic Trainer

Cody Fletcher enters his second season as Athletic Trainer in the Freed-Hardeman University Athletic Department. Fletcher received a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training from Central Methodist University in 2011 and later added a Master of Arts degree in Higher Education Administration from Southeast Missouri State University in 2014.

Fletcher worked at Southeast Missouri State for two years while pursuing his graduate degree. His primary responsibilities included working for the football and baseball programs at the university.

After leaving Southeast Missouri, Fletcher began work at Star Physical Therapy as the Athletic Trainer at Greenbrier High School in Greenbrier, Tenn.

Fletcher said his favorite part about Athletic Training is the opportunity to make a difference in the outcome of a game.

"I love helping to improve the quality of life my athletes can have post injury, but I am also a lifetime athlete and someone who loves to win," he said. "Having a job that allows me to help an athlete get healthy enough to compete makes me feel as though I am still part of the team myself."

Fletcher and his wife Ashley welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Tayleigh, in 2016.
