Real-life issue

I give a lot of credit to Milton Knox for being at practice Thursday. I heard great things about his character during the recruiting process, and saw it first hand Thursday.
Knox said his father, Milton Sr., suffered a minor heart attack Wednesday and underwent bypass surgery.
“I was with him all night at the hospital,” Knox said. “They said he is going to be all right, and were even talking about him coming home early.”
Milton Jr. easily could have bagged practice, especially knowing he is playing on the scout team, but chose to take part in it anyway.
