BC linebacker Mark Herzlich to play today

By Heather Dinich

Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich has 75 family members coming to see his return today against Weber State. He is also mourning the loss of his grandfather, who passed away Thursday (ironically of cancer). It is unknown how much he will play because of his injured foot, but he will play for the first time since Dec. 31, 2008.

Congrats to Herzlich for making his comeback from Ewing's Sarcoma cancer official. Regardless of how many snaps he gets, how many tackles he does or doesn't make, it's an inspirational story that should be considered a success the moment he merely steps back on that field.
