The American Sleep and Breathing Academy (ASBA) recently partnered with NFL greats Gary Baxter and Earl Campbell in Tyler, Texas to ensure the highest quality sleep program for the community. On September 8, 2017, Campbell and Baxter unveiled the Project Rose Sports Science Center and offered a tour of the facility to special guests. ASBA Executive Directors David Gergen and Alan Hickey were among the special guests invited to the event.
The Center for Excellence that has been built with Texas Spine & Joint and partner Baylor Scott and White is Phase 1 of the project.
“For Earl and myself, this is a dream come true,” Baxter said. “We’ve done a lot of hard work on this. We wanted to bring something special. Project Rose Research Institute for Sports Science is tax exempt; We’re raising money to do research in the field of sports. We want to make sure for the next generation that we are helping to prevent injuries and stop injuries through education. Then even after guys get hurt or injured, we want to be there to help them return to the field and/or return to normal life.”
Phase 2 will feature a Bio-Mechanic Lab where researchers will work on everything from muscle tears to helping prevent and lessen the effects of concussions.
“We are going to be working with the best doctors, the best researchers and with the best equipment,” Baxter said.
“My hometown means the world to me, and to be able to give back is what life is all about,” said Earl Campbell. “My goal for this non-profit is to help as many people as possible, while we contribute to the study of sports science. I am so thankful for the opportunity”.
