Just being aggressive and do more stuff but I kind of felt like I started to pick it up.
I can't progression kept us the season went on.
You know stuff happens and.
Get out there and lay back on time and that is what he did and that is what his teammates did despite a devastating injury to there.
Friend and teammate Kevin Wear a compound fracture that was gruesome and horrifying to see.
But from which she is already rebounding and it's incredible scenes -- -- talk about it as a matter of fact -- the -- -- statistic and six inches out of his leg.
A couple of days ago 72 hours ago and yet what an inspiration Trace Gallagher as you watch that -- was I confess is a non sports you know.
A lot of the names that he was mentioning.
We're not familiar to me but he appeared to be -- about his teammates and how.
Close they are described them like Brothers talked about how very very powerful it was to watch them win and how very very proud.
He was of them saying the bond between those teammates could not be broken.
Sadly the leg holding them up could be but he is expected to make a full recovery within a year they say.
Yeah he should be playing next season mega and the -- kept mentioning over and over again was Luke and it's Luke Hancock who is the captain the removal cardinals basketball team.
He's the one that came over and said the prayer for Canada where as he broke his leg.
