    Chris Lofton

    Wow... Quite the story

    LINK

    .....The three-time All-American, in an exclusive interview with ESPN.com, revealed for the first time publicly that he played his senior season at Tennessee after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from one of his testicles in March 2007.

    He was diagnosed with cancer only a few days after Tennessee ended its 2006-07 season with a Sweet 16 loss to Ohio State in San Antonio. Miraculously, the cancer was discovered after Lofton was picked randomly following the first-round win over Long Beach State to submit to an NCAA-mandated drug test. The results turned up positive, and Tennessee officials weren't notified until the day of the Ohio State game......


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I just read that, WOW, very lucky he caught it early. Testicular cancer is most common in 18-30 year olds, so everyone out there, give the boys a little extra check once and a while!

    Re: Chris Lofton

    I read this story yesterday and I couldn't believe that he had cancer. Players like this is what makes basketball such a great game. I'm glad that he made it through this ordeal and I hope that he can make at the next level.
