I still remember his horrific injury and recovery. Anyone know what he's doing now?

While he can walk he is not 100%.  He still has lingering affects from the injury

Another story from a year ago.

Thanks for the article promo. I still wear his jersey from time to time. Sounds like a classy guy that has a strong faith in god. Great example

As I recall, what made Kevin's injury so "horrific" was the fact that it was such a run of the mill play, and looked like nothing really...but it caused so much damage.

I hope he is doing well, seemed like he didn't let his career and health (To a certain extent) being taken away take his life away as well.

Exactly. That was the same situation for Mike Utley.

I was thinking this had to be done on purpose by whoever rolls the tape, to mess with the sports guy.  What are the odds of that not being done on purpose?!?

And Dale Earnhardt. That crash was not nearly as bad as many others, where drivers exited their vehicles without a scratch.
