“My entire career, my whole life, it’s always an uphill battle. I was never one of the guys that was hyped up or highly touted. I always had to really earn my respect 10 times over.”
No matter which stage of his career you select, this quote from Shane Prince, now 28, can be applied.
At 15 years old, Prince, a Spencerport, N.Y., native, was drafted by the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. He was the final pick of the 13th round so that highly touted comment certainly seems justified.
