Jarvis Moss, the first round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, suffered a staph infection two years ago that brings back memories of our ordeal, and might for you too:
If I showed you film of what he was like the first spring Ã¢â‚¬â€ he was 215 pounds,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Meyer, who became FloridaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s coach two years ago. Ã¢â‚¬Å“To become a first-rounder, and well deserved, help us win a national championship, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one of the great success stories, in my opinion, of college football in the last 10 years.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Getting drafted is an emotional experience for most players, maybe more so for Moss because of his ordeal. He said he woke up early before the NFL draft Saturday and cried, trying to get the tears out before his family saw him. When the Broncos called and told him heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be the 17th overall pick he couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help it; he broke down again. [Source]
Aww, that makes me so happy for him, even though I *strongly dislike* the Gators (I just had to say that). Way to go Jarvis – I am so happy for you!!
