Tim Hightower Inducted into University of Richmond Hall of Fame

A nice change of pace story from all the Manning, Robert Griffin, and Haslett stories. Via the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Tim Hightower intends to repeat history and defeat a deflating injury.

He missed most of his senior football season at Alexandria's Episcopal High because of a broken foot. Most college recruiters stopped tracking him.

"The next thing you know, I've got a scholarship to the University of Richmond, which I knew nothing about," Hightower recalled on Saturday, when he was inducted into the UR athletics hall of fame).

Hightower developed into UR's career-leading rusher (3,712 yards from 2004 to 2007)

Congrats to Hightower. He included a small quote on his rehab:

"Some days are a little bit better than other days. You have those days when you wake up and you're a little sore, and you're thinking you're not doing better. And then you go out there and do something functionally that you couldn't do last week. That lets you know you're progressing."
