Stanford University soccer player Jaye Boissiere said there was a point in her college career where she was asked to consider medical retirement. Two years in, the Los Altos Hills native had played in only one game due to injuries and then missed more than half of last season.
Boissiere stuck with it, however, and the Stanford women probably wouldn’t be national champions if she hadn’t.
