OrthoNebraska is pleased to announce the inaugural Comeback Athlete of the Year scholarship, recognizing athletes from the communities we serve whose journey from injury back to sport can inspire others.
OrthoNebraska has treated many athletes, so we know first-hand that athletes who fight to return to the playing field after an injury possess incredible determination and awe-inspiring dedication. We’d like to honor those athletes who have bounced back from an injury to successfully return to competition.
