Q: What sports do you play for AHS?
A: I play volleyball and soccer for AHS.

Q: How long have you been playing those sports for AHS?
A: I’ve been playing these sports since freshman year, so this would be my fourth year playing.

Q: What is the injury that happened to you and when did it happen?
A: I tore my ACL during my junior year on the soccer team.

Q: What were the injury’s effects on the team overall?
A: Both sports [volleyball and soccer] lost a player on the field or court, but they never lost the spirit of me being there. The only effect this injury had on the teams was me being unable to play.

Q: Overall, how has the rehab process been?
A: The rehab process has been difficult overall. I started off not being able to walk, but now I am able to jog, which I think is a huge achievement. Setting and reaching little goals makes the process a lot easier and manageable.

Q: How much longer do you plan to be out of sports?
A: My goal is to get back before soccer season tryouts. So, my plan is to only be out of sports about two more months.

Q: How will the injury impact you in the future?                                                           A: This injury will not have a huge impact on me in the future. I will have to be more careful because I do have the risk of tearing my ACL again. However, I am doing rehab to put myself in a position to play sports again so it doesn’t set me back.

Q: What is the worst part of being injured?
A: The worst part of being injured is not being able to play sports that I love. It is a difficult challenge sitting on the sidelines watching plays go by and be unable to do anything about it because I know what it is really like to be out there playing.
