When I found out several weeks ago that I was being honored at the ESPY Awards with the 2015 Pat Tillman Award for Service, I was overwhelmed with both excitement and anxiety. I was excited about being the second recipient ever to receive the award and being recognized for my continued service to my fellow veterans. I was consumed with anxiety at the thought of going on stage and giving a speech in front of millions. This is very different from playing ball in front of thousands.
