AJ Quetta, a Bishop Feehan senior who suffered a severe spinal injury during a hockey game in January, thanked those who have rallied around him for their unwavering support.

“What’s been going on lately has been crazy,” Quetta said in a video posted Saturday. “I don’t have words to describe how awesome you people are and how supportive you’ve been for me. You all give me a reason to keep pushing and keep fighting.”

Quetta thanked his teammates, who were there in unison as he left Mass. General Hospital for the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. He wished them luck in their game against North Attleborough,


“I miss them like crazy,” Quetta said in the video, posted by Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. “I would do anything to get back on the ice with you guys.”

His father, Anthony Quetta Sr., also took time to thank everyone for their kind words, texts, and Facebook posts. He said it “means so much” to the entire family and keeps them moving forward, calling it “awe-inspiring.”

He said AJ is “doing well, fighting hard,” and that the well-wishes are helping him “fight harder every day.”

“We’re receiving your prayers, and your support, and we love you all very much,” Anthony Quetta Sr. said. “Thank you.”
