Meet this month’s patient in the spotlight Trey Mattingly!
Currently, Trey is a junior in High School and plays baseball for the South Spencer Rebels. However, in the fall he tore his ACL playing football.
“During our second varsity game of the season, I ran down the field on kickoff and ran over a kid trying to get the receiver. I was reaching for the receiver when a kid grabbed me, and I twisted and heard a loud pop.”
“Luckily, Dr. Grossfield was great. We were skeptical that I would not be ready for spring baseball season but I knew with hard work, dedication and a great surgeon I would be ready. And we did it! I recovered months earlier than predicted. I put on about 15 pounds of muscle, and am stronger, faster, and more determined than ever.”
Trey has always been very athletic and was even in a T-ball league at the age of 2!
Presently Trey plays left field, 3rd, as well as pitches from time to time.
“I can play pretty much any position. But I like left field the most. I work hard and I’m determined to get to the next level.”
