Indianapolis Crew Transporting Kevin Ware Stayed Calm Amid Tears, Shock

(By Zak Keefer, and Shari Rudavsky)

"What you saw (Sunday) was everything we'd rehearsed, every single day, leading up to the event," said Ralph Reiff, who often runs the emergency medical crew at major sports events in Indianapolis. "You have a switch, and you do what you need to do."

The Louisville guard underwent successful surgery, and is already getting around on crutches, preparing to make the trip to his hometown of Atlanta to watch him teammates play in the Final Four.

Nice post, they did seem to do a fantastic job from the replay's I saw.

I think the teammate who was able to stay with Ware and tap him on the chest deserves some kudos as well, while no one else could look on (that would have been me too), he was right there with Ware trying to help as best he could, was nice to see.

Hopefully Ware is capable of a full recovery.

TWO YEARS LATER:

 

Amazingly, Ware actually came back and played 9 games last year for Louisville. ) O.o

He was able to get a red-shirt by sitting out the rest of the season, and transferred to Georgia State.

Ware had the best season of his career this year, starting for the first time ever (he was a reserve at Louisville), and helping lead the 14th-seeded Panthers to a stunning upset of #3-seeded Baylor in the N.C.A.A. tournament before they fell to Xavier in a tightly-contested Round of 32 game.

Ware has one more year of eligibility left (he will be a 5th-year senior next season.)

It will be great to see if his new team (Georgia State) can match or better what they were able to accomplish this season. ) :cool:

Ware is getting more playing time and scoring more pointed per game than he has n his entire 5-year college career now:

I'm happy for him, and glad to see that he is apparently faring very well, 3 years after his gruesome injury.

    • I was hoping to see news on a surprise retirement announcement after seeing this thread bumped up. 
    • Hutzler's was in Westview Mall, not Security Mall.
    • He lied before and was called out by Palmer.  
    • Isn't CD getting paid enough to lie through his teeth when he's asked questions on Hot Stove radio programs?  Would it hurt to make up a bunch of complete crap about his "punishing" work ethic just for public consumption?  Is that too much to ask? Apparently so.
    • I used to work at a grocery store in college and my boss used to me make me buy his lottery tickets at the liquor store next door and I frequently saw Artie Donovan in there shopping.  Only knew who he was because of Letterman.  Didn’t ask him for his autograph though.  Mark Williamson used to come in the Grocery store a bunch. As did coach Kenny Cooper.    Saw Brooks coming out of Security Mall one day In the 80s and he looked like he didn’t want to be bothered so I didn’t say anything to him. He left through Hutzlers so he probably figured no one was going to be in there.
    • Chris Davis did a phone-in interview today on the Hot Stove radio show on 105.7 The Fan here in Baltimore. Jim Hunter and Steve Melewski straight out asked Davis about hitting, and what he was doing to improve his hitting in this offseason. Nothing Davis said supplied hope. He flat out said he wasn't going to drastically alter his swing because he is now in his 30s, and because he has had sustained success in the past with his swing. He said he talked a lot with the O's staff (didn't he say that last year?) and the O's mentioned that he was successful when he was stronger, and since he has purposefully done less work with the weights the last few years, he was going to try to get stronger this offseason. He also said he would try to be more aggressive in order to not take so many called third strikes, and to let the ball travel, so as to not try to hit it out in front of the plate so much. He also said some stuff about his mind being in a better place, etcetera. Which would be nice if he was hitting baseballs with his mind instead of a bat. So, he basically said he was doing nothing special this offseason to improve his hitting, he is just going to take a better approach into the upcoming year.
    • Bwa-ha-ha!!! Beautiful! Great memory. Great reference!
