He’s the heart and soul of our program, so really tough blow,” head coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters. “I feel for him. He’s had a fantastic start to the season, has obviously made a huge jump. I just know Caris. If anybody’s coming back from this, the human, the character, the person, the player, he’ll come back from this.”
