Bruce McCall is being inducted into the Napa High School Athletic Hall of Fame for his long time assistance to coaches and athletes as a physical therapist and athletic trainer. McCall was a three-sport star at Righetti High School in Santa Maria. During his college years, a basketball injury ended his athletic career but also sparked his interest in sports medicine. While earning his BS degree at UC Santa Barbara, he worked with the Gaucho teams. His postgraduate work was done at UC San Francisco Medical School. McCall gained experience as a trainer, volunteering in the training room of the San Francisco 49ers. He is a licensed physical therapist, certified athletic trainer, member of the American Physical Therapy Association as well as the National Athletic Trainers Association. McCall, with his partner Glenn Hughes, owns the Napa Valley Physical Therapy Center that has, for more than 30 years, demonstrated its dedication to the health and safety of Napa and Vintage High School athletes. For decades McCall has provided information to players and coaches, worked with athletes on the field and opened his office to athletes for rehabilitation… all completely free of charge. One estimate is that the business has donated 19,000 treatments to the community’s youth. McCall has also been instrumental in building the team that includes local physicians, EMTs, and student volunteers that insures the best possible care for our athletes. He personally worked with Napa High teams from 1974 to 1989 and continues to be a loyal supporter as a member of the Athletic Boosters. For his assistance to the athletic programs and to the health of Napa High athletes, McCall is welcomed into the Napa High School Hall of Fame.
