Gross in good spirits

Buddy Gross seems to be in good spirits this morning, considering the right ankle injury he is facing. It’s an obvious obstacle to overcome for this sport, but so far he has been able to move around fairly well.

The front leaner seat shown in the image is helping out tremendously. This seat allows Gross to swing his leg over, keeping it elevated while fishing instead of standing or putting any weight on it. He’s managed to cover plenty of water and swing a few fish in the boat during the final day of official practice.
