Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
He began playing Para ice hockey in 2013 at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, MD, United States of America.
Why this sport?
His mother suggested he should try the sport. "I really didn't want to do it. Once I tried sled hockey, I instantly fell in love with it. It's a ton of fun throwing your weight around because it adds a whole new dimension and strategy to the game. Plus, it really has toughened me up physically and mentally because you have to be ready to take big hits."
