2006 Stanford v Washington Football agme.
Midway through the third quarter, Johnny Durocher, Washington QB flips an interception to Stanford. Stanford D Tackle Chris Horn 6'5" and 280 (and who happens to hail from NJ which is where I learned about this) takes off downfield blocking for the Stanford D Back.
Horn clobbers QB Durocher sending him flying to the turf...knocked out cold.
Durocher is wheeled off to recover at the hospital. Because of the head injury and loss of consciousness they take an MRI.
Low and behold they find the kid has a brain tumor. An operable brain tumor, that if had not been discovered as early as it was, may well have been fatal.
Life works in strange ways.
