Former Stallion.

Contrary to popular belief, the most dangerous animal is not the lion or tiger or even the elephant. The most dangerous animal is a shark riding on an elephant, just trampling and eating everything they see.

In 2009 a report came out that ALS in athletes seems to affect solely baseball,football and soccer players and not basketball or hockey players. The first 3 are outdoor summer sports and the latter are indoor winter sports. Environment has to be a factor.

I remember him as a player. Tough, intense and full of the game. Shocking to see him this way now but clearly he is bringing the same intensity and desire to meeting his current challenge.
A person to be admired.
