After the injury: Student athletes face more than just physical recovery
As a sophomore, Tyler Mellick had a bright couple years ahead of him. He was one of the few sophomores called up to play on the varsity hockey team. He was a varsity track runner and on the bubble of making the varsity tennis team. He was going into his junior year as the football team's top tailback.
"He was looking outstanding in our first week of practice," said Tyler's football coach, Dana Strain.
