Jim Stoker, PT, SCS, CSCS

Jim is a Physical Therapist and VP of Clemson Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, originally from Upstate South Carolina. He graduated from Furman University and The Medical University of South Carolina. His hobbies include keeping up with his wonderful wife and two children, attending Furman and Clemson athletic events and when at all possible hunting and playing a round of golf. Jim played the traditional three sports growing up, football, basketball and baseball. His sport of choice is basketball and now also golf. Two knee surgeries in high school derailed further competitive sports participation but initiated his passion for rehabilitation and sports medicine. Jim has provided volunteer sports medicine coverage for high school athletics since 1996 and whole heartedly believes these services are essential for our youth.


Christopher Clemow, M.D.

Chris serves as a primary care sports medicine physician with Blue Ridge Orthopaedics and a faculty physician teaching residents with AnMed Health. The care of athletes and their overall safety is a daily concern for him. He loves sports and has since he was a child. His favorite sport to play is baseball and football is his favorite to watch. These days, triathlon related activities are what he does to try and slow down “Father Time” and generally stay in shape. Chris believes PlaySafe is critically important to athletic safety in our area. “Certified Athletic Trainers are the foundation of a good sports medicine system. Without them, the team would never work. The education of the next generation of leaders in the sports medicine field is also something close to my heart. I am proud to be a part of what Play Safe is working hard to accomplish.”


Michael Cunningham

Michael is a member of the Executive Team at AnMed Health. Growing up he was fortunate enough to be involved in youth and high school athletics, and knows firsthand the benefits of focusing on safety. His favorite sport without question is football, although he does enjoy playing basketball for exercise. Michael believes PlaySafe can and will be an important part of building a healthier community.


Robert Corney

Rob Corney is an associate attorney with Gallivan, White & Boyd, P.A. in Greenville. He was raised in Charleston as the fifth of eight children, where he spent his free time on the water and playing organized sports. After graduating from the University of South Carolina, Rob obtained his Juris Doctor degree from the Charleston School of Law and went to work for the S.C. Attorney General’s Office. Two years later, he and his wife moved to the Upstate where they welcomed their first child in July of 2014. When Rob is not working or spending time with his family, he enjoys playing golf, basketball and tennis, as well as cheering on his beloved Gamecocks. He believes in PlaySafe’s mission because he has witnessed the type of life-altering injuries that can be sustained when athletes are engaged in heated competition, and appreciates the impact an on-site medical professional can have when injuries occur.

Lori Harmon

Lori serves as practice manager for Blue Ridge Orthopaedics. A huge fan of college basketball, March Madness is her favorite time of year. Her position working with Blue Ridge has allowed her to see firsthand how vital the services of a certified athletic trainer can be to the student athletes in our area. As a former high school basketball player, she experienced only student trainers, who, along with coaches, had minimal first aid training. “When injuries occur, our student athletes need to know that the first responder will be a certified trainer, someone knowledgeable in assessing, treating, stabilizing and coordinating care with the appropriate physician or specialist. It is the goal of PlaySafe to see that all of our student athletes practice and compete with the knowledge that access to an athletic trainer is no longer a need, but a reality.”
