Video: John Grant Jr. featured on local news; back from the brink of death

Health is a major issue with any big-time athlete as they grow older, but not many have gone through a more harrowing experience than John Grant, Jr. did a few years ago when a post-op infection threatened his life. As he says in this video from Chex Sports in his home town of Peterborough, his family were called to let them know he may not survive the night at one point. Of course, he survived and eventually came back as good as ever to set the National Lacrosse League single-season scoring record last year. It’s really quite a story.

Stamp is a TV sports announcer and lacrosse lover whose skill set made him a defender but who always dreamed of being a goal-scorer. He can be reached at stamplax@hotmail.com.
