This is not Sobieck's first bout with physical injury, he began with bad luck when he was just a small boy when he was severly bitten by a dog and had to have his leg rebuilt in the hospital. Parts of his leg remain without feeling to this day from the attack and he approaches all dogs with caution. Another incident where he jumped off of the basket ball hoop to the ground resulted in his breaking of both feet, but he failed to report the incident to anyone no doubt because of embarrassment and by the time his parents found out it was too late to do anything about it.

None of the other injuries have left him unable to play in the past but this incident definitely will.
