Mark Herzlich won't quit

Former Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder isn't the only ACC player who is training at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. Former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich is also there, working harder than ever to try to continue his career in the NFL.

In Part I of this series, you'll see how golf has been an important outlet for Herzlich during his battle with Ewing's Sarcoma Cancer, and during his training for the NFL. In Part II, you get a good glimpse into just how seriously Herzlich is taking his training both on and off the field. Best of luck to @MarkHerzlich, @cponder7 and the other ACC players still hoping for their shot.

You haven't seen the last of Ponder and Herzlich, though.

Their younger brothers are on their way up, too.
