You may have noticed lately that if you punch me in the stomach that it feels like solid steel? I know what you are thinking…hasn’t it always felt like that?

For about the last four months I have been in a back brace, and I am just about to take it off! I had to wear my brace all the time except for when I was sleeping or showering. Only three weeks into summer, we had our first basketball camp in Mitchell, and that’s where it all happened. It was the last game of the camp, and it was just before half. On a fast break, I ran to get back on defense, and I caught up to the ball handler and went up and blocked him as he was laying up the ball. All the momentum and being off balance, I landed straight on my back and ended up with three stress fractures. My summer after that didn’t consist of much other than lying on the couch in my brace watching television. The doctor told me he has no doubt I will be back for basketball. I began rehab recently and will be working hard to getting back onto to the court this winter. It has been a long summer, and I am more than ready to get this brace off!
