We Remember: Byron Leftwich Carried Down the Field After Breaking Shin

In honor of his 35th birthday, there's no better time to look back on the moment when Byron Leftwich officially became a warrior. 

On Nov. 2, 2002, Marshall took on Akron in a MAC regular-season matchup. Leftwich broke his left tibia in the early stages of the first quarter and left the game to get an X-ray at the hospital. You would think with a broken tibia, Leftwich would be out for the remainder game, right? 

Wrong.

Wanting to rally his team, Leftwich returned early in the fourth quarter, unable to walk. The QB was literally carried by his offensive linemen to the line of scrimmage to snap the ball. 

Marshall lost, 34-20, but Leftwich finished with over 300 yards. Not bad for a guy with one working shin.
