I was devastated since the tournament was two weeks away and there was no way I could play. My thoughts were troubled, but there was one idea I received, never say never. Therefore, I practiced the hardest I had in a while for those two weeks at my local golf course. By the time the day of the tournament arrived, I was ready.

My sophomore year was coming to an end, but unfortunately I was unable to practice due to the fact that I tore my hamstring. I was required to attend practices, and prepare for my return.

I had a good friend that deserves to be on varsity.
When I went into the E.R. they were concerned that I had a compound fracture in my ankle due to the fact that I had a deep cut. They said it was one of the worst dislocations they had seen and that I needed surgery the next morning. After the surgery my doctor told me that when I dislocated it I
