Hunter coming in hot again for the blog this year.....

Hey everyone,

            Hunter Long coming in hot again for the blog this year. I’ll be writing some good ones, so stay tuned. Anyway, hope everyone had a great summer vacation. Although for me, the word vacation seems to change meaning during that 3 month span. I work every day from 5:30 AM to between 2:30 and 6 every day. Tennessee’s summer heat is one for the books; if ya’ll haven’t experienced it consider yourself lucky. I’m also coming off shoulder surgery as well, and my shoulder is holding up just fine. I was blessed to have 2 of the best surgeons and rehab specialist known to man. They did everything they could possible for me to return to the game I love and while I was IR, I still managed to set a record for the worst and longest surgery he’s ever had in his career. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing but you have to find the positives throughout any rough situation you’re going through. Also while I have the microphone, big shutout to my parents who took care of me while I was in the trenches, love y'all a lot. While you are injured and you find yourself with a lot of down time, your mind starts to wonder and think about a lot of things. Sometimes things happen in your life for different reasons whether they are good or bad but I feel this surgery made me hit the refresh button in my career, and get back to the basics and just simply hard work, have fun no matter what, and have a positive attitude. I also think I took for granted that playing NCAA hockey is a privilege because all it takes is one shift or one bad night in town for that all to change. So going into every game this year my mindset will be a little different than it has in the past. Looking for a couple early wins to get the season rolling in the right direction.
