I used to see Braxston in the trainer's room a lot. He was hurt quite a bit in his ND career. I remember lamenting my latest stress fracture to Big John, who was the classic tough love guy. Big John wasn't hearing it from me. He pointed to Braxston and basically said, "take a look at that guy. He's in far worse shape than you and you don't see him getting down about it. Your injuries come from overuse and his come from violent collisions."
