Milton suffered a catastrophic knee injury during UCF's 2018 regular-season finale at USF, damaging nerves and blood flow so severely that it nearly forced doctors to amputate his leg. Since then, Milton has been on the GRIND trying to keep his energy/positivity up, and to get back out on the field.
If it were to happen, it would be, without question, one of the great stories in college football history.
Here's a snippet of the story detailed @ OrlandoSentinel.com
Injured UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton said Thursday there is a 50-50 chance he’ll be able to play football again during the 2020 season.
“It’s still my goal and I go to see my surgeon in June and I’ll know a lot at that point,” Milton said of his push to play during the upcoming football season. "The reason I set that goal is because I want to approach my rehab every day with the idea that I would be ready to go for fall camp and be a go for North Carolina in our first game. If I’m not approaching it that way then I feel like I would be missing days in therapy and not working as hard as I can.
“That’s why I set that goal and I hope to reach that and if I don’t, it is what it is and I’ll just keep knocking block-by-block.”
