My Story: The last 6 years of my life have been filled with turbulent events. I ended a successful high school football career, receiving the 2005 regional defensive player of the year award. I played middle linebacker and was involved in head to head collisions almost every play. Eventually, all the stingers I suffered caught up to me. A few months later my football scholarship was stripped after I suffered a ruptured disk in my neck that fragmented into my spinal column, aka a broken neck. My body atrophied and I lost over 30 pounds. The pain was debilitating and did not stop in my neck. It traveled down my arms and made my hands numb due to the pressure that was on my spinal cord. In May 2007, I underwent a three hour neck fusion surgery that permanently placed four screws and a titanium plate in my vertebrae. For the next 19 months, I was forced to rehab my neck and regain my range of motion and mobility. After I was cleared to train again, I decided to get my life back. I had two options: be upset or do what I could to get better. I got back in the gym and trained very intensely. I transformed my body from being a slim, 160 pound kid after my surgery to a 185 pound, natural lean physique with 6% body fat!
