Moon, '13, Goes Pro as Athletic Training Intern
Anthony Moon has earned a varsity letter as a member of the Albion College baseball team and he is used to the relatively slower pace of the game as compared to many other sports.
The senior from Paw Paw, however, adjusted nicely this summer when he made the leap to the frantic pace common to the National Football League as one of the athletic training interns for the Cleveland Browns during training camp. The adjustment was even more impressive considering it was Moon's first physically demanding activity since coming off hip surgery, which forced him to miss the 2012 Briton baseball season.
