Lebanon Highs Justin McKinney will be the recipient of the Sandy Sandlin High School Athletic Trainer of the Year Award during the Tennessee Athletic Trainers Society annual meeting Saturday at Nashville's Baptist Hospital.

McKinney, MS, ATC, and a product of Lebanons Cumberland University, is an employee of Health Management Associates -- the parent company of UMC hospital.

During the 2011 football season McKinney is credited with saving the life of football player D'Shaun Jones who collapsed after leaving practice with difficulty breathing.

McKinney initiated his emergency action plan, and used CPR and an AED to get Jones breathing again. McKinney's quick reactions helped avoid a tragedy.

Friendship Christian trainer Nathan Johnson received the 2010 Sandy Sandlin Award.
