Ben and Cindy Davidson Athletic Training Scholarship

Give Now

Ben was a Former Thunderbird athletic trainer who committed the majority of his life to Southern Utah University and the student-athletes that attended the institution.

Davidson became an athletic trainer for SUU in 1979, and he also served as a track and field coach at the NAIA level. He served as a track and field coach for eight seasons, where athletes under his guidance claimed four NAIA National Championships.

He was the National Athletic Trainers' Association Most Distinguished Trainer in 1999, and inducted into the Rocky Mountain Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame in 2007.

Davidson dedicated nearly four decades to Southern Utah University, and helped build the athletic trainers' education program into what it is today before retiring from the school in 2013. He was a teacher of all things and his method was simple: he taught by example. Rarely was there a time where he would pass on an opportunity to help others within the community.

Ben passed away on May 20, 2020 while hiking; doing what he loved. Join us in celebrating his life and legacy, donate to the Ben and Cindy Davidson Athletic Training Scholarship.
