The day we sat down for a second interview, Cody Hurley looked tired.

The 23 year-old squatted with the grunt of a man twice his age, sliding his glasses up to the bridge of his nose as he looked through them with peaked eyes. In our first interview, about a week before, I opened up with a request...
