His football season may be over, but Marcus Lattimore is still very much committed to his team and his supporters.
After suffering one of the most gruesome injuries in football history in a game against Tennessee on Oct. 27, Lattimore made it apparent he is not going to give up that easily and will return to the game.
As the South Carolina running back begins his recovery to repair damaged ACL, MCL, PCL and LCL ligaments in his right knee, he wants his supporters to know that he appreciates their well wishes, and he is sending out some well wishes of his own to his fellow Gamecocks, who beat Arkansas 38-20 on Saturday.
To see Lattimore’s message, check out the video below.
