LockDown helps conerly trophy winner Bo Wallace return to gridiron
“What we were trying to do was to reconstruct his ligaments with a minimal amount of holes in the bone of his clavicle so when he engages in contact this fall, hopefully it won’t cause a fracture where the holes are,” Geissler said. “To do this type of surgery in a contact athlete is a very unusual problem. I thought the use of this device, along with reconstruction of his ligaments, would be the best option for Bo.”“It’s just a week and a half after surgery, and I feel great,” Wallace said. “For these next few months, it will be a lot of rehab and taking care of it (his shoulder). I know I’m probably not going to throw before June. I just have to take care of my body in other ways and get with Pat and get my rehab done.”
Bo Wallace, actually started light throwing in April and played his first full game in August, gaining ESPN man of the match.

“The operation was very straightforward and I left hospital the following morning in a sling but my range of motion was back straight away. I think the best recommendation I can give for this product, and the confidence I now have, is that prior to the injury I wore shoulder protection and for the past four years, since recovering from the surgery, I have not worn any.”
