The 2015 season marks Steve Bartlinski's ninth as head football athletic trainer.

One of the most coveted athletic trainers in the country, Bartlinski was an invited delegate to the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine as well as the 2013 Leaders In Performance conference in New York.

Bartlinski has spoken at several national and international conventions, including the 2014 National Athletic Trainers' Association 65th Clinical Symposia in Indianapolis, where he presented on communication, challenges and conflict in athletic training.

Bartlinski gave a presentation on concussion management in Japan and also presented about Stanford's sports medicine and sports performance initiatives during a program visit to Las Vegas with Shannon Turley, the Kissick Family Director of Sports Performance. Among his many other speaking engagements, Bartlinski spoke at the 2011 International Kinesiotaping Research Symposium in Orlando.

In 2012 Bartlinski co-authored with a team of Stanford doctors a research paper in the American Journal of Sports Medicine on "Acromioclavicular joint injuries in NCAA football: Data from the 2004 through 2009 NCAA Injury Surveillance System."

Prior to coming to Stanford for the 2007 season, Bartlinski served on the athletic training staff of the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League for 12 seasons.

After working as an assistant trainer for the SaberCats during the 1995 and 1996 campaigns, Bartlinski was promoted to the head athletic trainer position and served in that capacity for the next 10 seasons.

In addition to his duties with the SaberCats, Bartlinski also served as an athletic trainer and physical therapist for Daniels Therapy Services in Mountain View (2000-06) and with Baysport Physical Therapy in Los Gatos (1995-2000).

Bartlinski has also served on training staffs for numerous local and national events, including the 1996 Summer Olympics, San Jose Rock 'N' Roll Marathon, USA MotoGP Red Bull Championships, East-West Shrine Game, Pacific Coast Figure Skating Championships, Monday Night Raw, Central Pacific Figure Skating Championships, Bruce Jenner Track and Field Classic and the USA Track and Field National Junior Championships.

Bartlinski received his undergraduate degree in athletic training and exercise science from Ithaca in 1994. He is a member of the Ithaca Alumni Advisory Board and is an approved clinical instructor with the undergraduate athletic training program at San Jose State.

In 2008, Bartlinski was named Stanford Football's Man of the Year for his dedicated service to the program.
