"There were lots of things that were said, lots of negative things," Hostetler said. "That fed me because none of those guys had seen me play. I never had the opportunity. It wasn't like I had gone out there and failed and that's why I was a backup. I was a backup because we didn't have free agency and I was behind a guy who was playing really well who hadn't gotten hurt."
"Habitat management and road structures to limit mortality are the next step," said Jeff Hostetler, a scientist at the Smithsonian Institution who did research on efforts to revive the Florida panther population while he was a graduate student at the University of Florida.
