He was ACC Defensive player of the year last year. From AP-
Herzlich, a senior, was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a cancer most often found in bone or soft tissue.
“Obviously, I was shocked. I had been extremely focused on preparing for my senior season at Boston College and for life beyond that. Now, I must channel all that energy into facing my toughest opponent yet, and that is exactly what I will do,” Herzlich said in a statement released by the school.
Herzlich has returned to his native Pennsylvania to be near his family and undergo tests to determine a course of treatment.
Herzlich was a finalist for the Butkus Award, given to the nation’s top linebacker, last season. He led the Eagles with 110 tackles, six interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
I’m a cancer survivor myself. As one I wish Herzlich the best and hope he beats the dragon.
