Deion Tolliver attended Baylor University, where he graduated with a B.S. in Athletic Training. He was originally born in North Carolina and moved to Texas when he was a young boy. Deion has always had a love for sports, playing basketball, football, and track & field in high school. He knew growing up that he wanted to play sports professionally or work within the field. During, his senior year of high school, Deion suffered his first major injury, which led him to finding an interest in athletic training. Working closely with his athletic trainer in high school greatly impacted his life. He wanted to do the same for others. Deion is currently working towards a M.S. in Applied Exercise Science with a concentration in Human Movement Science. After this fellowship, Deion hopes to work in the college setting.
Deion enjoys watching sports, listening to music, and traveling. He also loves beating his roommate, Omar, in fantasy football. He is currently in first place and intends to win it all!
