Courtney Wagner Signs 1-Day Contract with Rochester Razorsharks

Rochester RazorSharks
Rochester, NY (WROC)-  For the next 24 hours, the Rochester Razorsharks have a new teammate and a new captain.  Courtney Wagner, a young Canandaigua teen with brain cancer, is suiting up for tomorrow night’s game.
   
Wagner made headlines earlier this month when she started in her senior night basketball game.  Today, Wagner signed a one-day pro contract with the Razorsharks.  She’s hoping people can learn lessons from her story.

“Even if you have some traumatic disease or something that is really not good or doesn’t have a good prognosis, you can still be positive and try to get through it with the help of those around you with your community and family and friends,” said Wagner.

Wagner will be in the starting lineup and the honorary captain tomorrow against Philadelphia.
