Few and far between are the offseason days when we get to share good news about college football, and this one's a doozy. Syracuse punter Rob Long, who underwent surgery in December to battle a brain tumor, has a little something he'd like to share:
SB Nation's Syracuse community celebrates:
On paper, Rob Long should be a gimme for an NFL tryout. But nothing about Rob's life has been a gimme since he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. That tumor is now gone and Rob can concentrate the thing he's been wanting to do for as long as he can remember...kick on Sundays.
Our real and sincere congratulations to Rob, and best wishes for a long career in the league.
