We play this great game with heart and passion because there is no other way to play, we throw ourselves into this frenzy of violence for the love of the game. We as players and coaches know the dangers of what we do on all levels of football. Injuries are commonplace but when an injury like this happens to one of the games biggest stars it send echoes throughout the entire football world.
The Underdogs send they're prayers to Ryan Shazier, we hope to see you healed and on the field next season!
