Alabama’s Kenyan Drake reflected back on his injury two years later.
In Alabama’s 2014 matchup against Ole Miss, Drake suffered a broken leg in a gruesome injury. Tuesday marked the two-year anniversary of the event, and he took to Twitter to reflect back on it.
Drake said, “Warning Graphic Content: 2 years ago today I sustained an injury that many said wouldn’t allow me to play this game at the same level again. I lost the majority of my junior season and it made me cherish every single play I have today. Honestly without this injury I don’t know where I would be today because it taught e more about myself than anything in my life. On this anniversary I just wanted to take the time to thank my family, friends, teammates, training staff, surgeons and fans who helped me through a very surreal time and watched a boy become a man.”
