Bryce had surgery on his broken ankle and torn ligaments so running with his girlfriend. Like this wasn't an option. Okay cancer also. Talk if i can keep. Yeah ain't trying to die today. This is like whole movement disgusted. How nice this thing area right fact before getting hurt braces trajectory seemed clear my sophomore year going into my junior year. I just remember when. I was at a place where everything looked like everything outwardly. Look great on my freshman year. I had a chance to go to. Nfl my junior year. If i did really well that year. And i just remember just kind of questioning why i was doing what i was doing what my purpose was because i felt like i was kind of like a law like i knew what my dream was but i didn't know why necessarily like why fully i wanted it. And the thing is like every day in practice our coach's job and their goal was to create those situations where they push us to limit every day. You put my body on the line going through tough training and my coaches. They were getting on us every day. Yelling and just really getting on us mentally in our member. Thank you when you go through difficult situations. If you don't have a purpose or reason why to push through certain situations is very hard for you to to work through situations to overcome them. Come out on the other side. If you don't have a purpose or meaning for why you must go through it. And i was questioning like. Is this really something. I wanna do for the rest of my life like how dangerous we know. The game of football is concussions. All that stuff. I'm putting my body through hell every day in practice and i was thinking you know like is this really worth it. A once. obvious path to success was thrown into question after that software season. Bryce walked away from football. We have a very unique approach at the university of virginia as our program is very very challenging. That's bronco mendenhall. Bryce his head coach at the university of virginia. I'm surprised it took bryce through a sophomore year question. My goal is actually to have each of our young people uncover why they'd be playing as soon as possible to make things so significant so challenging. That wants decided. There's clarity on how come and so bryce moved from receiver to defensive back. Here comes a brand new coaching staff. None of them recruited them nor did he know in a program expects more than i think anyone might even think is reasonable. And so. here's all of this commitment. Here's all of us. Effort years all is being required. And certainly why now. Why would i do this. And so it's actually pretty normal and it was an amazing though the transformation once the clarity and the choice came is is something i really wanna do. Reis then took that internalize it and then he. He wrestled with it. The dream that formed in the far reaches of rice's mind dream. He visualized in a picture in kindergarten when he told his teacher that he wanted to play. Football was still there but fifteen years later he lost some of the motivation to achieve it the best gift i could give rice all. Isn't the football mastery. Or that knowledge it's the defining moments or the possibilities to have the defining moment so before he leaves college. He's ready and much.
