Country singer Lee Brice isn't joking when he says he wants to get back onto the football field.

"I promise you that I'll be back some day," said the 33-year-old Brice, who was a long snapper for Clemson University but had to quit the sport because of an arm injury. "I miss it so much. I just love the excitement and adrenaline."
