"Adversity Introduces a Man to Himself."
--Marcus Lattimore, former University of South Carolina running back.
Despite one serious knee injury, Lattimore was projected to be the most coveted collegiate running back in the 2013 NFL draft as the 2012 college football season opened. However, during that season, he injured his knee for the second time in as many years in a game against the Tennessee Volunteers. He torn three ligaments and many thought his professional football was over before it began.
Lattimore is engaged in the second major rehabilitation of his football life and reportedly working as hard as ever to prepare for the NFL.
Today, Lattimore is anxiously waiting to see if NFL teams will take a chance on him.
