Gruden's special on Lattimore airs tonight

By Chris Low

Do yourself a favor and be sure to tune in Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2 to the "Jon Gruden QB Camp" special on former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore.

I had a chance to watch a screening earlier today and it’s fantastic stuff.

Without a doubt, Lattimore is one of the finest individuals I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know in all my years of covering the SEC. Football fans everywhere were heartbroken when he went down with that gruesome-looking knee injury back in October, the second straight year that his season had ended with a knee injury.

But Lattimore has vowed to be back better than ever as he points toward the NFL draft, and his interview with Gruden is a reminder of how powerful the human spirit can be.

Again, be sure to tune in. Lattimore is a credit to his family, to his university and to college football.

He’s also a living, breathing testament to what sports are all about and is way ahead in his rehabilitation. I can't wait to see him back on the football field again.

“Adversity always introduces a man to himself, and this has really showed me who I am,” Lattimore says.
