Steve Morgan - pitcher at Michigan State University

 “This all just started as a business deal, I give you money and you make me strong.  That was the deal, but no you had to go above and beyond.  Every athletic trainer knows how to make someone strong, but I have never in my life met someone that turns a potentially great athlete into an unstoppable one.  What makes you so different from EVERYONE is your inability to step down.  You don’t accept athletes who make excuses or coaches or parents for that matter.  You find mentally strong people and literally harden their minds to where there is just no other way than to just do it.  That may be the best lesson I have learned from you, is just get it done.  Thanks for making me so mentally tough and helping me be my absolute best at Michigan State University.”
