Great young man. It also highlights how many of us take for granted the high importance and the scope and size of the natural supports built around us. Shannon didn't really have the environment for those to develop for good portions of his life.

Thanks for posting this! Too often we ignore the mental and social pressures these athletes face.

Wow! Really respect Shannon. I'm sure many of us can admit that we suffered from some type of mental stress/depression/panic over the years. I sure have, and yes, I'm not embarrassed to say I take medication and my life is so much better for it.

In case you wanted to hear his story more in-depth, he went on the GH podcast earlier this year. It's a tough listen, but he is so open to sharing his story and helping others. It's really remarkable.
