In this episode, the Radio Rounds team speaks with special guest Travis Roy, author of a book entitled Eleven Seconds, which chronicles his life-altering accident in 1995, in which he became paralyzed from the neck down, just 11 seconds into his first varsity hockey game with the then-reigning NCAA champion Boston University.
Travis’s story is about hope and perseverance in the face of tragedy.

Travis describes his accident in further detail, as well as the incredible response from the college hockey community.
