Re(5): Open Tryout at Miami on Friday @ 11 AM

Brilliant William!!!
I was never a star (and I am sure many will jump at the chance to confirm that ) but i had many good years left in me when i decided to walk away. After 12 years of not knowing if I had a job the following season, and if I did have a job not knowing how many months of income I would have and then trying to figure out how to earn income in between seasons i just had enough of the uncertainty. It is a tough lifestyle for those who do not play with year-round contracts. there is not a day that goes by that i don't think about playing or do not dream about playing multiple times a week. My brother played until he was in his 40's and once he was done he had no back up plan and has struggled to survive to this very day. I did not want to make the same mistake so I retired at the ripe old age of 29. I miss playing under the lights and It was not easy to walk away but it was the best decision I have ever made.
