NFL Quarterback is not only the most important position in sports, it’s also one of the most violent. Standing in the pocket with 300 lb. men wanting nothing more than to rips your head off eventually takes its toll. Byron Leftwich was just getting started when his legend was born. While still playing college ball for Marshall, he left the game early on and went to a hospital to have x-rays done on his leg, revealing a broken tibia. Not one to let doctors stop him, Leftwich returned to the stadium and the field. Hardly able to walk, he remained the gun slinger, as teammates carried him to the huddle between plays.
