“When I tore my anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) last October during football season, it was really tough. I was told I wasn’t going to play for at least six months. I worried that I wasn’t going to run track or play football ever again. I had surgery October 31. Then, I started doing my physical therapy the next week, which lasted about four months. When I finally came back, I worked as hard as I could so I could run track last season. I ended up going to Districts for high jump and placed sixth overall. When football started this year, I focused only on one position and special teams. It’s been a rough time getting back to where I was, but now my knee is stronger and more flexible than it was before.”
