I played football at Rutgers University. Prior to any injuries I ran a 4.41 in the 40 yard dash. My senior year in high school I won the Meet of Champions in track for the 100 meter dash with a time of 10.51 seconds, which ranked in the top 10 in America. After tearing both of my ACLs (in which Dr. Gatt operated on both), I came back to run a 4.35 and then eventually a 4.27 in the 40 yard dash and I was able to make it in to the NFL, where I lived out my dreams and intercepted Tim Tebow. I was nervous and felt uneasy with the first doctor I went to for an opinion, but when I went to Dr. Gatt I felt extremely comfortable and I recommend him for anyone. I can't thank you enough Dr. Gatt. .
