Growing up in a small farming community, Kevin Bonner developed a strong work ethic, as well as an early interest in both sports and the sciences. "To be honest, at the time, it was not much fun getting up quite early to take care of cows and chickens before walking to the bus stop," he says, "but I think it does instill drive and character, which helps you for the rest of your life."
Kevin Bonner was a three-sport athlete in high school, but he eventually concentrated on baseball, earning him an athletic scholarship to Georgetown University. He played well; however, like many pitchers probably threw too often, ultimately sustaining an injury to his elbow. The silver lining was that his injury spurred his interest in orthopaedics and sports medicine.
