Dwayne Frampton was Arkansas State’s number one receiver and was tearing up the NCAA, before the 2011-2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl. In the bowl game the Red Wolves jumped out to a 13-0 lead, where Dwayne had already had 4 receptions for 31 yards, before he took a hit in his knee. Frampton was on path to solidify a spot in the NFL Draft, but ended up with a Grade 1 MCL tear. Although he has had to overcome a lot he could remember the play like it just yesterday.
"I was running an out route and the defender broke quickly on the ball. When he broke to come tackle me, he just decided to put his head to my knee. I tried to lift my knee up, but my body stayed parallel and my knee went in. I got up and I thought everything was fine. Then something felt loose. The team [Doctor] said he didn’t recommend me going back in. – Dwayne Frampton"
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INSIDE, VIDEO PROVIDED BY CHRIS CHAMBERS OF XCELR8 PERFORMANCE
Frampton has been in Fort Lauderdale, Florida working out with Xcelr8 performance with Chris Chambers. It has only been a few weeks out since Dwayne’s injury and while some players take up to 8 weeks after an injury like this to get back running. Dwayne has been on a mission to prove people wrong, that he can play in the NFL at the next level, and that this injury didn’t stop him.
"I would say I am about 100% right now minus a few aches just after workouts. I am truly blessed– Dwayne Frampton"
Well I was able to get an exclusive video from Chris Chambers and his staff at Xcelr8 performance to show you how far Frampton has come. This video shows what he looks like right now, and shows how much work and dedication he has put into it. Remember this injury happened on January 8th, we are talking just a couple months later, Dwayne says he is back to normal. What do you think?
