"I decided to have surgery in April and recovered just in time for my Freshman year season of college club football. I finished the year without missing a single kick and was named first team All-American."
"This commendation goes to the team effort of three specific individuals that made it possible for me to continue to walk and live a normal unrestricted life. It started with the keen skills of Dr. Brian Halpern who instantly recognized that my sudden onset of shin splints was a serious lower back problem that had developed. I was training at 65 to take my first vacation in years to go climbing in the Alps."
