WHEN YALE MENS LACROSSE PLAYER BEN REEVES WAS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL HE SAYS HE WANTED TO FIND A CURE FOR CANCER….NOW ALL GROWN UP HE’S TRYING TO DO IT IN COLLEGE…HE’S WORKING ON SOME PRETTY COMPLICATED STUFF.. 3 (SO WE HAVE THE GYLMPHATIC SYSTEM THAT CLEARS WASTE OUT OF YOUR BRAIN SO THERE’S A WORKING THEORY RIGHT NOW THAT THESE NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES ARE BECAUSE OF PROTEIN BUILDUPS LIKE MISFOLDED PROTEIN BUILDUPS IN YOUR BRAINSO THEY THINK MAYBE WHEN THE GYLMPHATIC SSYTEM ISN’T FUNSTIONING YOU’RE NOT CLEARING THOSE PROTEINS OUT. I MEAN THATS SIMPLE STUFF ANYBODY CAN PICE THAT STUFF TOGETHER. BEN REEVES IS DIFFERENT. IT’S INCREDIBLE WHAT HE CAN DO OUT HERE. AND WHEN HE’S NOT SCORING GOALS. HE’S TRYING TO FIND A CURE FOR CANCER. SOMETHING HE’S WANTED TO DO SINCE MIDDLE SCHOOL. IT’S A LOT MORE COMPLICATED THAN I THOUGH WHEN I FIRST SAID THAT. IT’S A CHALLENGE. A LOFTY GOAL. SOMETHING REEVES NORMALLY SETS AND ACHIEVES. HE WANTS TO BE THE BEST STUDENT HE CAN BE HE WANTS BE THE BEST ATHLETE THAT HE CAN BE. AND YOU NEVR HAVE ANY FEAR THAT HE’S GOING TO FALL SHORT OF THOSE GOALS. REEVES SPENT LAST SUMMER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER DOING CANCER RESEARCH. IT MADE FOR SOME LONG DAYS. IN THE SUMMER ITS ABOUT 10 HOURS A DAY HE’S A YALE STUDENT AND HE’S AN INCREDIBLE YALE STUDENT. HE’S GOT CLOSE TO A 4.0, 3.987 OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN A MAJOR THATS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. WHAT MIGHT BE EVEN MORE DIFFICULT IS STOPPING HIM ON THE FIELD. HE’S ONE OF THOSE TYPES OF GUYS. I’VE COACHED ONE OR TWO GUYS LIKE HIM. REEVES WAS A FIRST TEAM ALL AMERICAN AND FIRST TEAM ALL IVY LEAGUE SELECTIONS AND WAS LAST YEARS IVY LEAGUE TOURNAMENT MVP. THERE’S IMPRESSIVE AND THEN THERE’S I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE HOW IMPRESSIVE THAT IS. WHETHER HE’S ON THE FIELD OR TRYING TO FIND A CURE FOR CANCER, REEVES WON’T QUIT UNTIL HE GETS IT RIGHT.IF I DON’T KNOW SOMETHING IT REALLY BOTHERS ME. I WON’T BE ABLE TO REST EASY UNTIL I GET IT DONE.) BEN REEVES ON WANTING TO FIND A CURE FOR CANCER(11:13:11:09) IT’S A LOT MORE COMPLICATED THAN I THOUGH WHEN I FIRST SAID THAT. I WAS PRETTY YOUNG, THAT WAS MIDDLE
