In high school football, I tore my ACL just before my Senior season as a captain. My goal was to get back to playing form in time for college Rugby in the fall. I re-tore my ACL that Spring and again, I had my ACL fixed. After lots of rehab, I felt great and got back to Rugby. After a great season in college, I moved on to play Men's Division 1 Rugby in the United States. However, a few years later, I felt like something wasn't quite right in my knee. I then spoke with my original knee doctor and was told I could never play Rugby again. I then sought out Dr. Russell Warren. He had fixed my uncle, a professional football player's knee, so I figured I'd talk to him and see what he had to say. One year later, I'm starting every game for my team. My knee feels better than ever. I laugh when I think back to my original doctor who told me I would never play again. Dr. Warren gave me back my playing career and a huge piece of my life. I am forever grateful to that man.
