THIS IS EPISODE 549 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Mark Herzlich played seven seasons in the NFL with the New York Giants. He was a member of the 2011 team that won Super Bowl XLVI over the Patriots. Herzlich retired following the 2017 season and is currently a football analyst with the ACC Network.
Undrafted in 2011 out of Boston College, Herzlich was the 2008 ACC Defensive Player of the Year and named first-team All-American at linebacker that same season. The next year, he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He was able to overcome and return to the field in 2010, and he won the Rudy Award and the ACC’s Brian Piccolo Award after starting 13 games and finishing third on the team in tackles.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Herzlich about his incredible story of overcoming cancer, how his faith became real to him in the midst of the cancer diagnosis, and the important role his wife, Danielle, played in his walk with Christ.
