Spring Hill athletic trainer to be honored for life-saving action

Baseball is about the little things. Life is about the little things.

Garrett Plumlee has an understanding for the two sentiments and an outlook that most could not comprehend.

“In baseball, the little things count – you’ve got to capitalize on the little things,” Plumlee said. “It’s a life lesson. I’ve learned to appreciate those things so much more.”

A life lesson the 18-year-old was reminded of on the football field this past fall.

After breaking his leg earlier in the season, the Spring Hill senior returned to action in his final game at Panther Stadium – a moment of stepping onto the field surrounded by his teammates and friends the lifelong athlete was determined to do.

“I knew that when I broke my leg I wasn’t going to let that stop me. It’s my senior year,” Plumlee said. “I knew I was going to get back on that field, and when I did, it was a great feeling.”

He scored the first touchdown that night, a moment to cherish for any departing senior playing in front of the home crowd for one last time.

There was another moment that would define that night for the rest of his life.
