AUBURN, Ala. – Horace Spencer will never forget his 20th birthday. Auburn was hosting Tennessee. It was a critical SEC game, and The Jungle was rocking. However, in the second half, he felt a slight tear in his shoulder. He tried to play through it but couldn’t do it. Later it was discovered that he tore his labrum.
“It was a great present,” Spencer said.
That’d be a blow for anybody, but especially for Spencer, who had missed four months the prior offseason because of a torn meniscus.
