The inspirational story of Cory Weissman '12 was featured in a Dec. 29 Sydney Morning Herald (Austrailia) article.
From the Sydney Morning Herald:
When rivalry ran distant second
Sure, call me sports journalism's answer to Hallmark greeting cards if you want, but I love this kind of stuff. And so does American writer Frank Deford, who ran a great yarn in March about what happened when the men's basketball team at Washington College played Gettysburg College in their last game of the season. The loudest cheers, he reports, went to the team captain, Cory Weissman, when he walked out on to the court as one of Gettysburg's starting five. For you see, though captain, and though his last game at the college before he graduated, it was also Weissman's first start. Four years earlier, as a freshman, he had suffered a major stroke, leaving him paralysed on one side, with seizures to boot. His journey back was long and arduous but by this year he could walk without a limp and even do some lay-up drills with the team.
