He revealed to WVSN what triggered his desire to transfer from Navy after only one year. “Government passed a bill where people from service academy can’t go pro. That’s my end goal in life and I wanna reach that. Being at navy was starting to make me lose the love for the game,” said Cain about why he had to move on.
