A storm, a tree and a life-changing injury turned college basketball player Zac Bradley into a rugby fan. It happened swiftly back in May 2011, when the 20 year-old from Riverdale was in his car.

“I was driving in a storm when a tree fell on top of the car, but I don’t even remember it,” said Bradley. “I know I suffered a spinal cord injury and was at Grady Hospital for a month, but I barely remember that. I was in a very bad condition and on a lot of drugs.”

The 6-foot-tall Bradley went directly from Grady to the Shepherd Center in Buckhead, where he realized the full extent of his injuries.
