Since 1974 the Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic has served the local area for orthopaedic problems and musculosketal issues. The sports medicine program has team physicians for local high schools which provide sports physicals and urgent care for athletes.   

On a weekly basis, Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic is proud to sponsor the "20 Questions" that will feature a high school student-athlete in the local Catholic high school community. If there is a specific student-athlete that you’d like to know or hear more about, email future suggestions to crevell@catholicsportsnet.com.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 3 a.m. because I’m usually asleep.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? Willie, it’s short for William.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Wesley Manor Nursing Home.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can walk on my hands.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Backwards, because I think it’d be cool to see prehistoric life.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I’d ask Jesus how to get to Heaven.
