Stokely was the only guy I ever remember talking about needing time off to recover physically from disc golf in the 90's. He was cool to watch because he had every throw in the book and just flat-out bombed, but it always seemed to take a toll on him physically. Sometime around '98 or '99 he was at Mid-Am just selling discs; he said he had an injury and couldn't throw. So I don't think it was a one-time major injury. I think his body just broke down from the physical strain of playing all that disc golf. It's a shame; he was by far the most entertaining guy to watch throw in the late 90's.
