Luck? Miracle? Courage? All Of The Above…

Imagine this. You are a top collegiate diver. One summer, you are with your brother and some friends at a swimming hole back in the woods that you’ve dove into many times before. Somehow you break your neck and split open your head pulling off a dive that you could do in your sleep off a springboard. You crack five vertebrae, almost paralyzing yourself. Somehow, luck smiles on you, and you just barely – by millimeters – avoid snapping your spinal cord. Then, a year later, you are back on the diving board, making your return to competition. Such is the STORY of Army’s Zach Mclain. A reminder that we all need a little bit (or a lot) of luck on occasion. I’m amazed by the courage Zach has for getting back on the board.
