ANAHEIM – 365体育娱乐平台网址 senior Maxx Silao might be a football coach some day. 

He got some early experience as a coach this season, experience he did not want. 他成了365体育娱乐平台网址教练特洛伊·托马斯“我的得力助手”.” 

Silao, 一个防守端, was unable to practice all spring and summer and did not play in a game until this month because of injuries suffered in a car accident. 

Silao and his father Scott were travelling south in the family truck on the 241 toll road, headed to their home in Mission Viejo on Feb 7 after watching the Super Bowl at a cousin’s home in Corona. Maxx开车.

他不确定事故是如何发生的. 

“但我很确定我在开车时睡着了,”Silao说.

车辆撞进了中间的隔板. 撞击击昏了斯科特和麦克斯. 当Maxx苏醒过来, the door would not open so he climbed through the driver’s side window and walked around the truck to try to pull his father out of the vehicle. 

“Mom said four people helped me but I don’t remember it,”Silao说. 

斯劳的脚踝骨折,腰椎脱臼. His father was in a coma for two days and continues his recovery from various injuries.

Silao手术修复的脚踝有一个钢板和螺丝钉. 它的背部有一根杆子、板和螺丝. 

Silao was told that playing football this season, his senior season, was unlikely to happen. 尽管如此,他仍然想成为365体育娱乐平台网址足球的一部分. 

“教练说每个人在这支球队里都有自己的角色,”西劳说. 

Thomas assigned Silao a role: coach the lower-levels defensive linemen, 为校队的防守队员辩护. 

“他一直是我的得力助手,”托马斯说. “我是一个很难为之效力的人. 我对我的球员要求很高. 我需要一个和球员沟通的渠道而麦克斯就是这样.” 

司劳认真地对待他的教练角色. 

托马斯说:“Maxx没有像我一样对这些人宽容。. “And that really helped me because it wasn’t always my voice having to say those things that need to be said. 我不认为和你的同龄人相处是件容易的事, 尤其是当你处在他的处境时, 不是在玩. When you’re playing on the field you get a little more ‘street cred’ than when you’re not. He would be relentless, getting this team where he wants it to be.” 

Silao figured sharing his knowledge and experience would benefit the program. 

“我只是把自己看作一名教练,”西劳说. “我做了我能做的,特别是为年轻球员. 我可以教他们快速传球和阅读, how to be able to read the offensive lineman’s eyes to see if they were looking here or there, 诸如此类的.” 

与此同时,思劳的病情有所好转. He started lifting weights, increasing his program as the weeks passed. Eventually the cast on his ankle was removed and and then the walking boot became unnecessary, 于是他开始跑. 

他最终参加了非接触演习. 随后进行接触演习. 

最后,他终于可以上场了. 11月. 12, Silao played in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 first-round playoff game against Santa Margarita. He had not played for Sevite since his sophomore season – the fall 2020 season did not happen because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the accident kept him from playing in the Friars’ five spring 2021 games. 

是的,他很紧张. As he jogged onto the field in the Santa Margarita game the nervousness dissipated quickly. 

“There was so much joy and excitement to be back on the field with these guys,”Silao说. “Just to be able to experience that one more time before I graduate.” 

His teammates’ interactions with him were like it was just another game. 

“他们对待我就像我从没受伤一样.”Silao说. “我需要的,.” 

事实上,他的队友们都为他感到兴奋. 

“It was magical,” said 365体育娱乐平台网址 senior linebacker Aden Eckenwiler. “队员们将他视为球队的领袖. 他激励了365体育备用网站所有人.” 

斯劳已经参加了十几场比赛 365体育娱乐平台网址以34-3击败圣玛格丽塔 和上周的演出数量差不多 以40比21战胜圣. 约翰黄宗泽 在半决赛中. 

找不. 8 to play against Mater Dei on Friday in the CIF-SS Division 1 championship game at Veterans Stadium in Long Beach. 

斯劳想在高中毕业后继续踢足球. His plans include community college football before matriculating to a four-year school. 

除此之外? As Silao has proven already, coaching football sure seems to be a possibility.
