Erie (Pa.) running back Greg Garmon cools on Wolverines | MLive.com

Illinois is in my top three, along with North Carolina and Iowa. There could be some changes to that list, but right now those are the three that really stick out.
The week before he had 5 those 3 plus UM and UVA.

4 years ago Garmon underwent chemo and radiation for cancer. Now he's a 4 star breakaway threat.

For the Star haters:
Quote:
"I don't think the stars next to a player's name really matter. Really, it just matters how you play when you get there and who wants it more, because there are going to be a lot of four to five star players that go to a school and never play. Stars just don't matter."
For the Facebook fanatics:
Quote:
"When I get on Facebook and I see the Michigan fan base pulling for me, it's impressive."
But they didn't make the cut

Not only a Survivor

Greg Garmon is both a cancer survivor and Top 100 football recruit - MaxPreps News

By: Joseph Santoliquito | MaxPreps.com
6/28/11

...

Each time he looked around the room it hit him. He had a tough time believing where he was, but the throbbing pain that coursed through his left hip, down his left leg and up into his stomach area said otherwise. It explained the constant ache he used to play with, one time running for 150 yards in sheer agony, and why his left leg kept popping out of his hip.

It told him he had cancer — at 14 years old.

The ordeal stated a little more to the 6-foot-2, 190-pound rising senior from McDowell (Erie, Pa.). He found out how much he loved playing football.

Rated No. 82 in MaxPreps' Top 100 players from the Class of 2012, the lightning-fast tailback rushed for 1,110 yards and 11 touchdowns in the Trojans' flexbone triple-option offense last season as a junior. He's received 20 college offers and has narrowed his list down to five: Michigan, Illinois, North Carolina, Iowa and Pittsburgh.

Talking about college destinations and possibly rushing for 2,000 yards this coming season is light years from lying in a hospital bed with lymphoma of the bone, undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments … and wondering if he would ever play high school football, all endured by Garmon when he was diagnosed with cancer in November 2006, which forced him to miss playing in eighth grade.

"I used to think that I'd never play again," Garmon recalled. "You think of a lot of things lying in a hospital bed and you're a kid with cancer. It's why I run the way I do now. I try to make it to the end zone on every carry. Every run is a big run, every hit I make is a big hit. I know what it's like to have football and sports taken away. I know what it's like playing football with cancer, because that's basically what I did."

Garmon played his entire seventh-grade season in excruciating pain. Each time he went to the doctor about it, Garmon and his mother were told he was growing too fast.

He dislocated his left hip several times. He'd undergo extensive stretching before each game with a chiropractor, and his left leg would still pop out. It came to a point where Garmon didn't want to say anything in fear of being taken out. He'd bite down hard on his lower lip and somehow deal with the shooting spasms down his left leg.

"I didn't think anything of it, I got used to the pain and I knew if I said something, I wouldn't be able to play," Garmon said. "I learned to live with it. I had to keep playing."

He made it all the way to his grade-school championship game, where he rushed for 150 yards on a mere nine carries.

Garmon didn't realize he was playing with cancer. That didn't come until after the season, when he and his mother visited Children's Hospital of Erie to see if they could get some answers in November 2006. A biopsy was taken and a mass was found. But to make sure, a second biopsy at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh was taken.

"I remember coming into the house from playing with my friends and I heard my mother talking on the phone," Garmon said. "I asked her what was going on and she told me I had cancer and that I had to spend two weeks in the hospital. I didn't think anything of it. What I remember most is being mad about not playing basketball, and we were supposed to have a good team my seventh-grade year. I was a young kid. I knew cancer was bad, but I didn't know it was bad enough that it could kill you."

It did, however, answer a pressing question.

"I knew what that pain was in my leg I had all of the time," Garmon said. "The biopsy showed my hip bone was shattered into pieces. I was playing with a shattered hip and no one knew."

A successful operation extracted the cancer. That was followed by eight months of chemo and radiation that lasted from November 2006 to May 2007. Garmon was home-schooled the remainder of his seventh grade year.

...
WOW!

I graduated from McDowell last year and I know greg. Very nice kid with a good attitude. Total monster on the field. But the classes he takes aren't strong enough to get him into nd. Who knows though, I'm not on the nd admissions board.
