During my senior football season, I lead the nation in tackles through the first eight games that I played. In game eight, I suffered a dislocated shoulder that would end my season and require surgery. It seemed that my hopes of playing professional football had been smashed. I left school in order to get surgery back at home in Pittsburgh, where I finished school online and began rehab. Because I had such a strong season leading up to my injury, I was determined to give my best effort at playing football at the highest level in the NFL. It was during this time that I really started to invest my time and focus into healing my body and becoming the healthiest person and athlete that I could become. I started seeing a nutritionist, eating clean, and taking the correct supplements (when I was introduced to NOW® vitamins/supplements).
