The player said he was talking to his wife over the break. I was like, you know what? I want it to be cold. I want it to be warm. I want snow.

Under Recognize to Recover, announced by the USSF in December 2015, a wind chill temperature index of the type forecast includes a "recommended action'' to "consider modifying activity to limit exposure and allow for more frequent chances to re-warm.''

Moderate risk for cold-related illness is defined as a 19 wind chill, which is orange on the USSF index, when the temperature is 25 degrees.

The USSF recommends to provide additional clothing, cover as much exposed skin as practical, and provide opportunities and facilities for re-warming.

If the wind increases to 10 mph and the wind chill drops to 15, the index would be in the red zone. The alert level would be black if the temperature dropped to 15 degrees and the wind increased to 10 mph.

Cancel or attempt to move activities indoors is the recommendation for that level.

He said to "know that mentality and what it takes to succeed in those moments.'' It's embracing the cold for me. When I'm called into action, I have fun with it and keep up my focus. This is America. This is beautiful. In the same time of year, we can play in 90 degrees and in zero degrees. It's pretty cool.
