The Athletic tells former Syracuse punter Rob Long’s story after brain cancer

Sorry in advance for links being few and far between of late. Life’s interfered a bit on that front, and as you can probably tell, we’ve been busy around here just the same. But today’s top story deserved some further broadcasting.

The Athletic’s Matt Gutierrez wrote a great piece on former Syracuse Orange punter Rob Long, his work with Uplifting Athletes and his continued battle with the depression and anxiety that comes after living through the trauma of brain cancer. Rob’s healthy and cancer-free for years now. But that hasn’t necessarily reduced his concern that it could return.
