"I play because whenever I am on that field, in that crease, I forget about any troubles. It's like I don't have a prosthetic, it's like I don't have stress, it's like I don't have drama. I play to have fun, and I play for the love of the game. I play to make it to college, and accomplish my dream of playing for the University of Virginia."
