Albert Dell Flair Jr. 1952 - 2013

Albert Dell Flair Jr.

Sunday, August 04, 2013
In our days on earth we meet many people, but only a very few truly impact and shape our lives. Dell Flair was a life changer for me. Meeting him was one of the most defining moments of my life. He accepted me into his profession when I was searching for a new identity and inspired me learn the LSU way to handle the tools of athletic training. From that first day in 1978 when he looked me over as a 43 year old Vietnam combat veteran walk-on student trainer trying to learn to clean a whirlpool the LSU way, and said "Well, now just who do we have here?", my love affair with athletic training kick-started. Today I am still working as a certified athletic trainer with 33 years of experience at the university, clinic, NFL and Olympic levels because of him. He inspired me to try to emulate him: be punctual, disciplined, dedicated, and set the example as a professional. Those goals have served as north stars for me to set my daily compass to follow. But the most important lesson I took away from our too short time together was to always keep the fire of my passion for being the caregiver for my athletes burning.Be sure they know they can trust me to insure their health and safety on the fields of competition above all else- but have fun doing it! What a smile and laugh- they could light up the training room like the sun. I was very sad to read this news today; it leaves a hole in my heart. On the road of life I have learned that it truly is "family first; because all the rest are strangers." Dell Flair was family to me.

I was sad to hear of the passing of Dell. I knew Dell mainly through Louisiana Athletic Trainer Association. He will be missed by the athletic trainers that knew him. His family will be in my prayers.
