    So good morning.
    Yesterday, Florida High 2017 graduate Cam Brown, a two-time state medalist for the Seminole wrestlers and all-state footballer, had surgery on his left leg, where the surgeons removed the leg two inches above his knee, to fight the growth of osteosarcoma there.
    According to the Team Super Cam Facebook page, a prosthetic device should fit him well. He’s out of recovery and in his hospital room and will be able to eat today. Hopefully he’ll be able to be home before July 4th.
    In the meantime, there is a fundraiser for Cam scheduled for Saturday, July 29th (that’s four Saturdays from tomorrow, if you read this on the 30th of June), from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Rockhill Missionary Baptist Church in Tallahassee. More details are on the attached flyer below.
    As my #trackdad responsibilities will have come to a close for the summer by that point, in fact I will not even have parental responsibilities on that day with my son up north with his mother, I am going to take my crabby car — which has decided to become temperamental these past two weeks, what with the lovely weather we’ve been having — and come out to this event.
    I think you should make plans, too. Hopefully, I will see a large contingent of the north Florida wrestling community in attendance.

    The Cats, thanks for posting. What more are you hearing about Cam? For some good news, I did see that Tyrie is cleared to go this fall. GO CATS!!!

    STATS has done a nice article about the battle and his immediate plans:

    http://www.fcs.football/cfb/story.as...00416733194304
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    ~ Which of ETSU, Stony Brook or Albany shall I cheer for now? ~

    I'm afraid that the doctors, even with the left leg amputation, did not get all of the cancer. Sheesh....I cannot even begin to imagine what this family is going through. Even if this kid never dons a purple and gold uniform, he will always be a Catamount. Sad.
