Albert Padilla, a senior in the department of athletic training at Temple, is featured in the current edition of "Say Something," a podcast produced by the Chronicle of Higher Education that collects stories from college students about what they're up to and why. Padilla talks about his experiences as an intern with the Minnesota Vikings, and credits his opportunity to Jaime Mansell, the department's clinical coordinator. "At first, the athletes were a bit standoffish. They want to know that you know what you're doing," said Padilla. "But after just a week, they start to trust you and everything runs like clockwork."
