Logan Mann has overcome a serious and rare condition to play football. He has signed to continue his career at the University of the Cumberlands.

Logan Mann just had one concern as he was coming to after surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital.

“When he woke up from the surgery, he was in the ICU,” Logan’s father, Paul Mann remembers. “When he was coming to, his eyes were not open, but he asked, ‘Can I play football?’”

He’d just undergone an operation in which part of his skull had been temporarily removed so a surgeon could fix a problem in his brain. Yet Logan Mann was concerned if he could put on a helmet again.

He did.
