He was introduced to wheelchair basketball while still on active duty as part of the NMCSD Wounded, Ill and Injured Wellness Division programs.
After almost 10 years, Hector continues to enjoy playing wheelchair basketball and mentoring the younger players. He looks forward to continuing to grow the exposure to the game as well as to all adaptive sports in general.
