Imagine playing football your entire life and you achieve a dream: signing with a Division I program. Then, a brutal setback strikes.
That’s exactly what happened to Brodarious Hamm one month after he put pen to paper on National Signing Day back in February. Hamm learned he had cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma to be exact.
Eight months later, he received some incredible news on Thursday that he was cancer free, posting about it on Facebook
When Hamm was diagnosed, coach Gus Malzahn said that the football program would stick by him, issuing this statement:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. He’s a fine young man with a fine family. He’s got a great attitude. Very unfortunate and like we’ve talked about before we’ve had experience with players — Shon Coleman, Tashawn (Manning). We’re going to be there for him. He’s going to get through this. We expect him to be with us after a short period of time after he gets healthy.”
Hamm was a 3-star recruit according to 247 Sports and was ranked as the No. 32 recruit in the country.
