Utah Two-sport Star Thriving After Falling Off 60-foot Cliff, Nearly Dying While Hiking

Elijah Glissmeyer returned to high school football and basketball after falling off a 60-foot cliff -- Twitter I did find the fastest way down -- it wasnt the best way. (This kid's got comedy chops, too, as http://www.apmsd.com/page/13/ evidenced on Twitter @elijahgliss .) Glissmeyer's list of injuries, summarized by the Deseret News , reads like an MMA fighter's worst nightmare: broken skull, tailbone, hips, arm, nose, orbital bone and elbow in addition to a collapsed lung and severe skin avulsions. I only had a swimming suit on, and some slippers, he explained to the paper. I thought I was going to die. His football career was over, and his basketball playing days were probably behind him, too. Except somebody forgot to tell Glissmeyer. Within a month, he walked, within three, he ran, and within four, he was playing basketball again -- for an Alta squad that reached the 2012 http://rafaeleveb.wordpressy.pl/?feed=rss2 Class 5A state championship game -- AFTER HE FELL OFF A 60-FOOT CLIFF. My first game back was one of the most memorable experiences of basketball Ive ever had, Glissmeyer told the Deseret News. The whole crowd was going crazy. Remarkably, Glissmeyer returned to football this past fall, recording 43 tackles , 12 QB hurries, two sacks and a http://investor.biospace.com/biospace/news/read/25347725/ forced fumble for the Hawks. And now he's the starting center for an Alta team that has started 12-1 on its state title chase.
