THE BELIEVER: "As a teenager, Evan came down with a horrendous nosebleed shortly before a major competition. He lost so much blood that he turned white and felt faint, yet he still wanted to skate. Then he went out and gave such a perfect performance that he won the competition. He has the mental ability to believe in himself no matter what, and then deliver." -- Frank Carroll, coach
