Arthur Ray Jr. has been on crutches for nearly 21 months since he had cancer surgery. But the former star lineman hasn't given up his dream to play for Michigan State.

Listen to Ray tell his story and it's hard not to believe that one day, he'll fulfill his dream and suit up in green and white.

"If all else fails, I just want my health, man," he said. "I just want to be able to walk without crutches. I just want to live a normal life again without restrictions, without worries.

"But there's still that itch in me. Football is in me. I can't give it up. I can't just wake up and be like, 'Maybe I don't want to play.' I do. I can play this game."
