Congratulations to Dr. Chhabra! He was asked and acted as the Medical Director for the Fiesta Bowl and the Cactus bowl 2015, arranging providing medical care to all teams competing. 44th Annual Fiesta Bowl Recap: No. 20 Boise State rode the momentum from a hot start and a late defensive stop to hold off a charging No. 10 Arizona squad en route to a 38-30 victory at the 44th Annual VIZIO Fiesta Bowl on Wednesday afternoon in Glendale, Ariz. Jay Ajayi rushed for 134 yards in the game and three first-half touchdowns to help pace the Broncos to their early lead. Quarterback Grant Hedrick completed 24-of-31 for 309 yards and a touchdown with one interception while Thomas Sperbeck caught 12 passes for 199 yards to earn Offensive MVP honors. Tanner Vallejo finished with 14 tackles and 1.5 sacks to earn Defensive MVP accolades while Donte Deayon returned an interception for a touchdown in the third quarter for BSU's only touchdown of the second half. 2015 TicketCity Cactus Bowl Recap: (Tempe, Ariz.) - The Oklahoma State University football team utilized a dominating opening half and held off a late surge from the University of Washington to take home a 30-22 victory at the TicketCity Cactus Bowl on Friday evening in Tempe, Ariz. The Cowboys (7-6, 4-5 Big 12) opened up a 24-0 lead through 30 minutes of action and did just enough to hold on at Sun Devil Stadium, despite being outscored 22-6 in the second half. Desmond Roland finished with 123 yards on the ground for OSU, earning Offensive MVP honors, and playing a pivotal role in OSU outgaining the Huskies with 473 total yards of offense to just 369. Mason Rudolph had 299 yards and two touchdowns on 17-of-26 passing with an interception while Brandon Sheperd added 98 yards through the air with a touchdown reception to help key the Cowboys' multi-faceted offense. In a game that featured the coldest kickoff temperature (45 degrees) in Cactus Bowl history, the announced 35,409 in attendance sat through temperatures that started dipping close to freezing in a contest that saw Washington (8-6, 4-5 Pac-12) keep things interesting after a slow start. The Huskies closed things within a single possession with 3:29 remaining in the contest on a Jaydon Mickens 16-yard touchdown reception from Miles and a successful two-point pass conversion from Miles to Deontae Cooper. The Cowboys looked to have things in the bag, however, following a 48-yard third-down reception by defensive lineman James Castleman to set up a 27-yard Ben Grogan field goal attempt on the following drive. The score would have made it a two-possession game with under a minute left, but the attempt was hooked wide left to give UW one final gasp. The hope was short-lived, however, as Kevin Peterson picked off Cyler Miles with five seconds remaining in the game to seal the victory for the Cowboys. Seth Jacobs earned Defensive MVP honors with eight tackles, a tackle for loss and a forced fumble. The OSU defense had eight tackles for loss in the contest. After being thoroughly dominated in the first half (gaining only 108 total yards of offense), Washington opened the second half with seven-play, 82-yard drive to get on the board to climb back within 24-7 following a 31-yard Jaydon Mickens rushing touchdown. Oklahoma State would add a 27-yard Grogan field goal with 1:47 remaining in the third but Washington wouldn't go quietly into the night, as John Ross returned ensuing 96 yards to the house - the longest kick return in Cactus Bowl history - to bring UW back within 27-14. Mickens' second touchdown of the game made things interested, but the Washington offense just couldn't muster one final drive at the end of regulation. Miles finished with 268 yards and a touchdown on 25-of-38 passing with only the interception at the end of regulation against his credit. Mickens finished with 113 total yards (31 rushing, 82 receiving) to pace the Husky offense. The Cowboys drew first blood in the contest, driving 84 yards on 11 plays on the opening drive of the game and taking a 7-0 lead on a bruising goal line run up the gut by defensive tackle James Castleman - his first rush and first touchdown of the season. Oklahoma State was able to withstand the storm of back-to-back turnovers on the ensuing two drives. The Huskies forced a Rudolph fumble on the OSU 28-yard line, but UW's Cameron Van Winkle's 43-yard field goal attempt a couple plays later clanked off the left upright to keep the Huskies off the scoreboard. It took just three plays for Washington to regain possession as Budda Baker utilized one hand to help bring down a long Rudolph interception deep in UW territory. The Huskies were unable to capitalize and OSU made them pay on the following drive, heading 84 yards down the field on the next drive - including a nifty double pass play - with Rudolph finding James Washington on a 28-yard strike with the seconds drifting down in the first quarter to give the Cowboys a 14-0 edge through one frame. After adding a field goal in the second quarter, Oklahoma State ended the first half with a dagger as Rudolph found Brandon Shepherd on a 47-yard bomb with 48 seconds remaining before the break to go ahead 24-0 heading into the locker room. #RESULTS.RECOVERY.RELIEF.

TOCA Tip Tuesday: THROWING Injuries! Throwing injuries are common at all ages. They can range from strained muscles to tears and even fractures. Injuries mostly occur at the elbow or shoulder and vary based on age and sport. Baseball is the most common cause of throwing injury, in particular pitching. It is a very stressful motion for the arm and often occurs in younger players who throw too often, too much and with poor mechanics. The velocity of a pitch comes from the lower body and if proper mechanics are not used (either from a lack of training or a lack of physical capability) then injuries will occur. This happens as the arm become the generator of velocity and leads to stress on ligaments, tendons, cartilage and bone. In kids, growth plate stress fractures are common. In adults, labral tears and rotator cuff tears are more common. Around the elbow, kids can get growth plate injury or cartilage damage. Adults typically get tendonitis/ tendon tears, ligament tears, bone spurs, loose bodies and occasionally a stress fracture. Treatment is almost always successful without surgery if it is caught early and mechanics corrected during the rehab process. Rehab can take months to accomplish and can be frustrating as time off from throwing is required. Once fully recovered, a gradual (2-3 month) return to throwing is required to avoid recurrence. Surgeries are more common when the injury progress to full tears or high grade partial tears. Recovery can take 6 months or more and return to throwing can be as long as 18-24 months. Many times, even with successful surgery, throwing cannot be resumed to the same level as before the injury. Weekend warrior throwers (throwing hard to your kids or in adult leagues) when adequate conditioning is absent leads to injury more often. Prevention is the key and knowing your limits. Avoid throwing hard (flashback from younger years) use proper mechanics and maintain shoulder muscle strength (rotator cuff, scapula) and overall conditioning. TOCA has several fellowship-trained physicians with extensive experience and expertise in throwing injuries. If you need someone to asses your injury give us a call: 602-277-6211
