J.D. Byars is Back in the Press Box

Transforming JD

JD leads an active lifestyle running marathons, jogging stadium steps, and playing sports with his kids. An injury put a halt to all that, but his doctor knew leading specialists who could help get him back to doing the things he loves.

As the play-by-play voice of the University of South Alabama Jaguars, J.D. Byars spends much of his time split between the USA football field house and the press box.

According to J.D., he was impressed by the professionalism of the caregivers and the new up-to-date technology at the USA Strada Patient Care Center. “Every single touch point left an impression of care, efficiency and a good attitude,” he said.
