Travis Roy Inspirational Story

Roy attended Yarmouth High School as a freshman, then transferred to nearby North Yarmouth Academy in order to pursue an athletic scholarship. Roy transferred again and graduated from Tabor Academy and received an ice hockey scholarship to Boston University.

On October 20, 1995 — just eleven seconds into his first-ever shift for Boston University men’s ice hockey team — a 20-year-old Roy slid head-first into the boards after University of North Dakota player Mitch Vig avoided Roy’s check. The awkward impact with the boards resulted in Roy cracking his fourth and fifth vertebra and leaving him a paraplegic.
