I got really nervous when he told me this, But when I lined up for the play I remember what Bugs told me, and I got really confident. When he gave me the ball, I ran as fast as I could and juked out one kid, then trucked over another kid, and I was running away from at least 5 players ahead of me. And I thought to myself “oh my god” because at the time, I was like 4 foot 7, and they were like 5 foot 2.

I sprinted to the endzone, not aware of anyone that was near me. At the one yard line, I felt a shove. Although I fell on the end zone, the corner-back landed on my arm, crushing it and pain surging through it. As I walked off the field, I showed it to a medical professional.
