Three years ago, I tore a major ligament in my shoulder that required reconstructive surgery. Prior to this, I was a first string varsity quarterback on a full ride scholarship at a prestigious university. The injury I sustained was devastating and threatened to end my football career before it had even begun. Doctors told me I may never play football at the collegiate level again. The emotional misery I felt from the possibility of never being able to play the game I loved again far outweighed any physical pain I suffered from the injury.
Facing long odds, I was determined to get back in the game as quickly as possible. With the help of a top notch Bristol personal trainer and a lot of internal motivation, I overcame my shoulder injury in record time. Doctors were impressed with my recovery time and cleared me to play for the next season.
