Uplifting Check Presented At BC

September 12, 2009 - 12:40 pm

Before the start of the third quarter a check was presented on the field at Alumni Stadium by Uplifting Athletes of America to the Sarcoma Foundation of America in the amount of $32,541. The check represents fundraising efforts after an event held in honor of Boston College linebacker, a Butkus Award finalist for the nation's top linebacker last year as well as ACC Defensive Player of the Year, who was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma this spring. Herzlich is said to be responding well to treatment at the Dana-Farber Institute and is attending classes this fall. He is hoping to return to the field for the Eagles next year.
