Chandler Harnish said there was a time in his life when he contemplated quitting football.
Harnish is Mr. Irrelevant XXXVII, but this is a relevant story.
Before his junior season at Northern Illinois University, Harnish thought he had enough of football. A knee injury took a toll on his body and his mind.
However, Harnish said support from family and friends helped him to continue to play the game.
Harnish, a quarterback, went on to become one of the best players in school history. And perhaps more importantly he was drafted into the NFL.
He has another opportunity in front of him. But, yes, it's another challenge.
Harnish has crafted a great story up until now. But now he's up against great odds. The Colts already have their franchise quarterback. They took him No. 1: Andrew Luck.
Harnish was picked dead last.
On Tuesday night, he received some advice from former NFL players and took in some roasting too. Harnish remained confident.
