This is the injury that took me to boarding school for two years before college.
I was in Colorado playing lacrosse in my last tournament of the summer. It was the championship game, and the biggest game of my life yet.
I had just committed to my dream school, Marquette! I had to preform my best.
Parker, I'm open!
I got the ball, and just when I thought we were going to score,
I was blindsided and taken to the emergency room.
Well Parker, from what I can see in your X-Ray, your elbow is badly broken.
Most likely, you aren't done growing yet.
Will I need surgery?
Parker, if you still want to play at Marquette, we need to do something. With your lengthy recovery time we think that it is best that you go to IMG. They have phenomenal training and physical therapy.
Ok, I'll do it. I want to be the best that I can be and this is what it takes. When do I start?
After two years of recovery and training every day for hours on end, I was ready for college.
Wow, senior year is finally here, I never thought I would it be in Florida for two years away from my family BEFORE college even starts.
Finally, at Marquette
Man, I'm all moved into college, that flew by so fast. Time to make new memories with new friends!
