Al Bellamy enters his 12th season as athletic trainer. In his role, Bellamy helps manage the team’s athletic training staff and works closely with the team’s physicians.

Bellamy arrived in Detroit following 13 years as assistant trainer with the Washington Redskins. Bellamy began working with the Redskins in 1988 and was a member of the team’s medical staff when Washington won Super Bowl XXVI.

In 2009, Bellamy also served on the Gatorade Advisory Board.

Prior to joining the Redskins, he served a two-year stint as an assistant athletic trainer with the University of Miami (Fla.) football team (1986-87). During this span, he worked with the Hurricanes’ program that claimed the 1987 National Championship and included former Lions’ safety Bennie Blades and wide receiver Brett Perriman. That assignment was his first full-time job and came after he had earned his master’s degree in physical education (emphasis on sports medicine) from Syracuse.

Before obtaining his master’s from Syracuse, Bellamy attended Michigan State as an undergraduate and received his bachelor’s degree in health education in 1984. While at MSU, he began working in the NFL when he served training camp internships with both the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers.

Prior to attending Michigan State, Bellamy attended Archbishop John Carroll High School in Washington, DC. In recognition of Bellamy’s career in athletic training, the school’s annual Student Athletic Trainer and Manager of the Year Award is named in his honor.

He and his wife, Sharon, reside in Northville, Mich., with their son, Chase, and daughter, Ashley.
