They say that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, and that couldn’t be more true. I am a sophomore college volleyball player and I tore my ACL one week into preseason this year. Last season I didn’t get a lot of playing time, so I worked my ass of this summer to get better. I did all the assigned workouts, the optional ones, and hired a personal volleyball coach. I was killing it at the first few practices of preseason, and people noticed. I was in a great position to be a significant contributor to my team. Then one bad landing later, everything I envisioned for the season was destroyed. I lost my huge double room that I had to myself, because they had to move me to the first floor. It takes me 20 minutes to walk to a class that is 5 minutes away because of my stupid crutches. And worst of all, I can’t play at all this season. I am so incredibly heartbroken. I’ve cried myself to sleep for the past week. I just feel lost right now. You never think it can happen until it happens to you….
