King's football player delays surgery to play with his team

Saturday, November 21, 2015

Heraldnet has a story about King's football defensive end Edmund Sundquist, who delayed surgery on a broken and hyperextended elbow to play his senior year with the team.

For those teams fortunate enough to be playing in mid-November, every player is a little worse for wear.King's defensive end Edmund Sundquist takes it to a whole new level. Sundquist was injured before the season even started. 
The Knights senior broke his elbow and hyperextended it prior to King's season opener against Lynden. Sundquist opted to delay his surgery until after the season so he could play his senior year out with his teammates. 
“The doctors told me, ‘You're going to need to have surgery and you'll be out for six-to-eight weeks. You could maybe come back for playoffs,'” Sundquist recalled. “As a senior, there's no way I'm sitting out for that. ... I've been playing football since I was in fourth grade. I played fall and then arena football, so I've played more than 10 seasons easily. I just love the game. Not playing was not an option for me.” 
So Sundquist toughed it out and returned to be a force on the defensive line for King's.
